Our Mission is to accelerate the future of digital services for our partner ecosystem through our scalable, purpose-built interconnection platform.

It’s clear that the future of technology is, in many ways, a digital space race. Everyone has a slightly different vantage point, and our starting point is a Connectivity First approach. This hinges on seamless, secure, and scalable digital infrastructure.

We are reimagining that digital infrastructure landscape. We are empowering carrier, cloud, and content partners – called “C3” – through new, state-of-the-art, neutral connectivity hubs in high-demand, high-growth markets. We do this by bringing a more geographically diverse, highly interconnected data center platform to markets with purpose-driven partners through our scalable, trusted interconnection facilities.


Our leadership is the foundation for our continued success and our intentional plans for growth. Learn more about the members of our leadership team and our supporting board members who are bringing our company’s vision to life.
