Worcester, MA (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
Barry Communications, a Massachusetts company providing business voice and data technology and service, announced that it has become a partner with Access Northeast, one of the largest privately-held datacenters and managed service providers in New England. The partnership will expand access to voice and data cloud communications services for Barry clients while helping Access Northeast reach new markets.
Barry Gerhardt, President and Founder of Barry Communications, says that the company has used Access Northeast’s services for years, but that their new Private Secure Enterprise Cloud and Hybrid Cloud capabilities resulted in an expanded relationship. “Our clients want the flexibility, scalability and cost-efficiency of cloud communications without concerns about data security and disaster recovery. Our partnership with Access Northeast enables us to provide a single-source solution for voice and data services that meets this need,” says Gerhardt.
Through its partnership with Access Northeast, Barry Communications offers IPConnect, an all-in-one, fixed, monthly plan for voice and data services that is backed by 24/7 monitoring and management. Services are provided using a combination of cloud and premise-based networks.
Among other services, Access Northeast provides a comprehensive hosted cloud computing system including private, dedicated customer infrastructure, managed firewall and security applications, dedicated collocation space for additional customer equipment, scalable bandwidth and storage, and fully managed service.
“There is tremendous interest in migrating data and voice communications to the cloud, but there are understandable business concerns about security, downtime and disaster recovery. Our partnership with Access Northeast enables us to provide our customers with a cloud-based or hybrid cloud- and premise-based that addresses these concerns,” comments Gerhardt.
