Sidera Networks has expanded its fiber network to add several new data centers in northern Virginia, including Latisys' state-of-the-art data center campus in Ashburn.

"We are seeing increasing adoption of high-density computing each year. This, combined with the rising costs of power, is making our data center and colocation services the ideal solution for enterprises from all industries, as well as government agencies and service providers," said David Haskell, regional sales director at Latisys-Ashburn, a leading provider of high-density data center services. "Sidera's network provides the accessibility, reliability and flexibility we require to ensure top performance of our customers' mission-critical applications."

The Latisys-Ashburn campus includes a newly built 71,800-square-foot data center, plus an adjacent 63,000-square-foot facility with more than 40 megawatts of available power capacity. Latisys-Ashburn provides businesses with enterprise-class security and support combined with various bandwidth options, including fiber-based connectivity from Sidera Networks.

"Industry-leading data center providers, such as Latisys, are constantly looking to offer their clients more, especially as it relates to communications services. Our high-capacity, customizable network offers the flexibility and reliability these facilities need to address the demanding requirements of the businesses they serve," said Sidera Networks' Maura Mahoney, vice president of marketing and business development. "The businesses colocated at this facility can leverage Sidera's network for high-capacity, low-latency connections and benefit from working with a trusted partner committed to optimizing its clients' business performance."

Sidera Networks has a fiber-rich network that services financial institutions in New York City and New Jersey with colocation and metro Ethernet offerings. Sidera's network also stretches to Portland, Maine; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; and Toronto.

Sidera Networks was previously a division of RCN, where it was called RCN Metro Optical Networks, until Abry Partners bought RCN last year and split Sidera Networks off under its new name.

Earlier this year, media reports surfaced that said Sidera Networks was for sale.
