Telx Boosts Application Uptime With New cloudXchange

Secure, Cost-Effective Connectivity Platform Enables Cloud Service Providers to Deploy Distributed and Hybrid Cloud Applications Service Nodes in All Major U.S. Markets

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) - Telx®, a leading interconnection and colocation provider in strategic North American markets, today launched its new cloudXchange connectivity platform. The Telx cloudXchange enables cloud service providers to offer on-demand applications and infrastructure via a distributed, hybrid delivery model. This industry-unique delivery model cost effectively increases cloud services uptime, while reducing application latency, giving end-users a reliable, "on-premise like" quality experience. Available in all 15 of Telx's world-class data centers, the Telx cloudXchange is also where Enterprise cloud users can securely connect to a fast-growing ecosystem of solutions providers.

"Today's Enterprise cloud user expects on-demand solutions to be as responsive and highly available as they would be if they were 'on-premise' services," said Justin Giardina, Chief Technology Officer of iland. "The Telx cloudXchange addresses a growing need within the cloud service provider industry to meet customer demand as the pressure increases to ensure high uptime and secure, always-on availability."

"Telx's cloudXchange is the meeting place where cloud services, carrier networks and Enterprise come together; purpose-built in response to our cloud provider customers' growing need for reliable, cloud-neutral, carrier-neutral connectivity choices within all 15 of our data center locations," said Darryl Brown, Director of Cloud and SaaS services for Telx. "The cloudXchange allows cloud providers to deploy distributed and hybrid cloud solutions with a variety of connectivity options that eliminate dependence on public Internet connectivity to Enterprise back-office data and systems. This gives them the power to offer and even exceed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) instead of fighting for bandwidth on the unpredictable public Internet, or by building their own backbones. The Telx cloudXchange creates a secure environment that is close to the Enterprise end user -- and just a cross-connect away from a vast, growing ecosystem of carrier backbones and thousands of potential customers."

The Telx cloudXchange makes the delivery of cloud services more cost-effective to deploy, because providers can "scale up" as their cloud computing offerings evolve. Providers have the power to choose the best carrier for their needs, with the most appropriate amount of latency and can also switch carriers easily if latency or customer connectivity requirements change. Telx offers a wide range of options for cloud providers, including:

  • Network Nodes - Locate network nodes in Telx data centers to gain access to the largest number of carriers, cable and DSL providers and ISPs, and to connect to peering.
  • Metro Pods - Gain low latency and proximity by deploying application distribution nodes and locating a pod in Telx facilities near end users -- eliminating what end users know as "lag time" in delivery of cloud services.
  • Primary Infrastructure - Locate primary cloud infrastructure in Telx facilities for cost-effective, secure, reliable highly connected application delivery.

Telx will debut the cloudXchange live at Interop Las Vegas show booth #514, May 8-12, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. To schedule your one-on-one presentation about the Telx cloudXchange, please e-mail dbrown@telx.com.
