Telx expands data center capacity in Chicago
Sep 13, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Telx, a provider of interconnectivity, cloud enablement services and SLA data center facilities, has announced the addition of 1.2 megawatts of power in its Chicago data center, or CHI1, facility located at 350 E Cermak in downtown Chicago.
According to the company, Telx's CHI1 facility is within the world's largest datacenter at 1.1 million square feet and one of the most critical facilities for the global business community. Telx operates the critical interconnection area known as the "Meet-Me-Room," and with this addition of an incremental 1.2 Megawatts across two new suites, Telx now operates 8 suites exceeding 3.7 Megawatts of high-density colocation space, making Telx one of the largest colocation providers at the CH1 facility.
The strategic expansion reportedly enables new and existing Telx clients to grow and expand their services within an ecosystem of cloud services, digital media, financial markets and enterprises of various sizes. The continued growth of Telx's power capacity provides seamless uptime and security that critical applications demand while reducing risk and exposure when compared to hosting "on-premises."
"Telx has consistently delivered exceptional levels of customer service and enabled our access to key markets to meet the critical needs of our clients," said Tom Guinan, executive vice president & chief technology officer for Advantage Futures. "Telx's expansion strategy as well as their ability to foster new business connections for our company via their robust ecosystem was a big factor in our decision to nearly triple our suite space in Telx's Cermak CH1 facility."
Located in the South Loop of the Chicago Central Business District, Telx's Chicago datacenter (CHI1) hosts the premier mission-critical data center and telecommunications facility in the Midwest. The CH1 facility offers access to the CME/LNET Exchanges, direct access to SFTI Network and other carriers via fiber to the other suites within the building, the company said.
