Priceline takes advantage of Evoque’s carrier neutral data center facilities in a multi-year deal
DALLAS, February 11, 2020 — Priceline, a world leader in travel deals, recently signed a long-term contract with Evoque Data Center Solutions™, an international colocation (colo) services company. Priceline chose Evoque because of the company’s historical uptime performance, which is a key element to Priceline’s ongoing business continuity plan.
Priceline also selected Evoque as its colocation services provider because of the company’s superior account support, responsiveness, competitiveness, service reliability, and location proximity to the Priceline headquarters and major metro areas.
“As a company, Priceline, has benefited from relationships with the technical teams and the combination of flexibility and process they use in managing our technical assets," said Chris Muir, Sr. Director Network Infrastructure at Priceline. "Evoque has done a great job of transitioning the management of colo space in NY and evolving the offerings to expand on available providers. We are excited about continuing with Evoque and taking advantage of the new opportunities they provide.”
Priceline will take advantage of Evoque’s carrier neutral colocation model — introduced in 2019 — to connect to multiple network service providers and customers. This solution will better help Priceline achieve its main priorities.
“We’re proud and humbled that a company like Priceline, that relies so heavily on a continuous, uninterrupted online presence, would trust Evoque to meet their colocation needs,” said Mike Vignato, Executive Vice President of Global Sales at Evoque Data Center Solutions™. “We’re happy we can offer them the location, services, and support they’re looking for to achieve their business continuity and uptime goals over the next several years.”
