Digital BackOffice is Connected to the Nutmeg/CEN Network

Digital BackOffice has completed installation of a fiber optic connection between the DBO data center and the Nutmeg Network (Connecticut Education Network).  The fiber optic link enables high speed, secure access between the DBO data center and CEN connected schools, colleges, municipalities and libraries anywhere in the state of Connecticut.  The Nutmeg Network is America’s first statewide K-12 and higher education network to be built exclusively using state-of-the-art fiber optic transport.  “Restrictions limiting access to the education and research community have been removed” said Dale Bruckhart, V.P. Public Sector Marketing at Digital BackOffice.  “Federal open access rules encourage government funded broadband programs to partner with public and private entities at a fair price without discrimination.  The Digital BackOffice management team recently signed a network access agreement with CEN and we are pleased that the fiber service has now been activated”.

The Digital BackOffice data and network operations center remained online during Hurricane Sandy continuing a track record of uninterrupted data center services over the past decade.  Connectivity with the Nutmeg Network will allow the Digital BackOffice to expand highly available, data center services to municipalities, schools, and other public sector agencies in Connecticut.

Digital BackOffice data center and cloud services include physical or virtual server co-location, off-site data storage or archive, managed optical Ethernet transport, hosted Exchange email, Sharepoint software as a service, and Netwatch network monitoring services. “In-state data center facilities and knowledgeable technical personnel have been instrumental to our growth and success since 1991”, said Francis Palacio, President of Digital BackOffice.  “The City of Norwalk, City of Stamford, Town of West Hartford, and New Haven Public Schools, have been customers in some cases for over a decade, and this agreement with the State of Connecticut will allow us the extend high availability cloud  services to many other public sector agencies across the state.”
