Telx, a leading provider of colocation facilities and a Global Convergence Solutions (GCS) partner, announced that Voxel (News - Alert), a provider of hybrid cloud hosting and managed services, has joined the Telx cloudXchange.
The company said that it has selected Telx’s secure, carrier-neutral Cloud Connection Center at 111 8th Ave. in New York to expand its international service delivery footprint. The company also expects to maintain high levels of network uptime and availability.
“By integrating into the Telx Cloud Connection Center, we can quickly and cost-effectively offer onramp connections in additional markets, increase connectivity performance and bring our cloud services closer to the end-user networks for the best Quality of Experience available,” said Stephen Callahan, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Voxel.
With Telx cloudXchange community and Cloud Connection Centers, cloud service providers such as Voxel can seamlessly connect their infrastructures to Enterprise end users, leveraging Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to ensure IaaS and application uptime.
Since it’s now part of Telx cloudXchange, Voxel can now directly offer Telx’s customers at the 111 8th Ave. Cloud Connection Center direct access to its cloud solutions, including the VoxCLOUD offering, backed by Telx’s Private Interconnect service activation capabilities of less than 24 hours.
“By joining the cloudXchange, a vast ecosystem of hundreds of networks, Voxel can easily meet the demands of its enterprise customers by delivering hybrid cloud solutions that securely interconnect public and private clouds with ‘on-premise’ quality enterprise applications and data,” said Darryl Brown (News - Alert), Director of Cloud, SaaS and Media at Telx.
The Telx cloudXchange community and Cloud Connection Centers streamline the delivery of cloud services. Company officials said that this enables cloud providers to build distributed, hybrid clouds using private connectivity options.
Brown said that Telx created the cloudXchange community and Cloud Connection Centers to give its cloud service provider customers the ability to deliver reliable, responsive, “on-premise” solutions.
“Our Cloud Connection Center in New York City offers Voxel SLA-ensured proximity, latency, speed, scalability and the flexibility to leverage a broad range of connectivity options,” Brown said.
Telx is a provider of interconnection and data centers and a GCS partner. GCS is a proprietary rating and routing Next Gen Network Solutions (News - Alert) company.
This week, GCS is attending B/OSS Live, an event in which hundreds of professionals in the telecom market will join together to hear about which business and operations support systems are necessary to employ to become leaders in the communications industry.
