Xand: How can they help YOU?

Our main goal at Metrotech is to provide our clients with the best solutions possible that not only satisfy their specific requirements, but also keep the newest trends in technology at their fingertips. So with many of our clients inquiring about Managed Services, Colocations and Cloud Environments, we decided to partner with a company that would allow us to not only provide them with these services, but to provide them with superior experience as well. Xand, a leading infrastructure solutions provider throughout the Northeastern United States, is large enough to handle intricate customer requirements across nearly 500,000 square feet of facilities, yet nimble enough to provide customized solutions with the highest level of service available in the marketplace.

Why colo? Colocation facilities are built to specific specifications and standards to meet the needs of today’s high-tech hardware. They are built with conditioned power, cooling (HVAC), Generators, security systems and many other factors where costs can add up extremely fast.

With a colocation, it takes the problem of the physical site and staffing required away, so it may make sense for your company to take advantage of a colocation for all of your data or just a portion of it, so your IT team can focus on more important tasks.
