Ashburn is an area that has many providers that have taken suites with larger colocation providers and hence the repeating addresses below.

 
 

CoreSite

CoreSite builds mission critical facilities which they offer for very competitive rates with good interconnectivity and many certifications. 

Our take. They excel at colocation and interconnectivity. Even with their robust build costs they don't appear to charge a premium for their space. CoreSite doesn't offer managed services directly.

Our take. You get much value for your IT spend with DRT. They offer flexibility in their power density which allows firms to save some money if they don't need high density computing environments. They feature excellent interconnection options and they have extremely robust power, network and support.

Equinix 

 

Equinix is most known for its amazing carrier connections and peering inside the data center. Businesses that require massive interconnections between various networks rely on Equinix to give them solid access. Major public cloud providers also are available through direction connections.

Our take. You are buying some of the best interconnected and mission critical colocation on the planet. They will certainly not be the cheapest of prices but you will get a solid value.

Flexential

Flexential is the renamed entity of ViaWest recently merged with Peak10 . They offer colocation, HIPAA compliant cloud and a full suite of managed services. 

Our Take: The Flexential product suite is broad but with solid execution due to some strategic acquisitions. Flexential has long held excellent datacenter properties in top markets. Peak10 offered robust facilities in smaller US markets while ViaWest offered mission critical public and private cloud services with a specialization around HIPAA compliance.

PhoenixNAP

PhoenixNap offers a robust colocation offering along with hardware leasing, managed network services and cloud backup / DR services that include Veeam. In our work with PhoenixNap we've found them highly responsive and competitive in their pricing. 

Our Take. A very strong data center provider with good access to other networks. Their managed DR and continuity offerings through Veeam are intriguing and should be examined for those seeking a DR solution.

QTS 

QTS is known for their mission critical and large facilities. They offer colocation and a full suite of managed services that include cloud, disaster recover and traditional managed hosting services.

Our Take: We've worked with QTS in the past and the clients we've helped choose QTS don't regret it. Having the full suite of services also means that you can get out of the self managing business and have someone else completely take over their environment. Their past acquisition of Carpathia hosting gave them even more management capabilities than before.

RagingWire

RagingWire has a LEED Gold facility in Ashburn that offers a robust facility from security, network and certifications. 

Our Take. We find RagingWire excels for larger colocation deployments that are larger than a few cabinets. Their facility shows well in all regards and their support and sales teams we find to be highly responsive.

Zayo

Zayo has quickly grown their business with organic and acquisition growth. They have colocation in 30 markets globally and are well connected to the best networks. 

Our Take: Zayo not only offers mission critical colocation but they offer a robust portfolio of cloud and connectivity services. From cloud infrastructure to disaster service as a service they have it all under one roof.
