Qwest Communications International Inc. (NYSE: Q) has announced a new multimillion-dollar agreement with i/o Data Centers to create a super-fast and super-secure data storage facility. Qwest engineered a custom telecommunications solution for i/o Data Centers' Scottsdale ONE data center facility, which includes working within the company's stringent design specifications. i/o Data Centers chose Qwest because it provides an exceptionally robust solution for large bandwidth needs. Qwest has turned the Scottsdale ONE data center into a TeraPoP and Layer 3 site where customers can connect directly to the Internet. This means the center will be able to provide customers with Internet speeds from 1 Gigibit per second (Gbps) to 10 Gbps. i/o Data Centers is utilizing a GigE port from the Qwest 40 Gbps backbone, which is accessible from that location today. Additionally, Qwest and i/o Data Centers have designed this Scottsdale data center site for future scalability of 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps interfaces.
