Yyotta Data Center Creating “Interconnection Ecosystem” for Stafford, Va. and Washington, D.C. Area Businesses
STAFFORD, VA – April 18, 2017 —Yyotta Corp (“Yyotta”), a new colocation, cloud and managed services provider, and carrier neutral Internet exchange point (IXP), today announced that Comcast Business (Comcast) has established a point of presence in Yyotta’s modular, Tier 3 edge data center strategically located in the Quantico Corporate Center in Stafford, Va. adjacent to the Quantico Marine Corps Base.
Yyotta provides turnkey, purpose-built, IT infrastructure services supporting connectivity and cloud operations. Yyotta’s high bandwidth cyberinfrastructure platform is engineered to meet large enterprise and Federal agency requirements for low latency that saves milliseconds and gives them a distinct competitive advantage.
