New Continuum Holdings operates New Continuum Data Centers and partners with 20C LLC, a developer of network and infrastructure management code, on United internet Exchange LLC.

New Continuum and 20C created N2Open Labs as a way to support the development and deployment of interoperable software. Matt Griswold, founder of 20C, will provide direction and serve as CTO.
