CenturyLink, Inc. Wins Colocation Contract from National Institutes of Health

CenturyLink, Inc. won a colocation contract from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that could be worth nearly $63 million over the next 10 years. CenturyLink will provide colocation, network connectivity and disaster recovery services to the NIH National Library of Medicine and the NIH Center for Information Technology.
