Telx, one of the largest domestic interconnection and colocation data center operators, announced today that it has expanded its presence in Phoenix. The expanded space at 120 East Van Buren Street increases Telx's Phoenix footprint, increases available capacity by more than 50 percent, and will provide some of the highest power density in the downtown Phoenix market.

"As cloud computing, software-as-a-service, and low latency networking continue to provide businesses worldwide with the competitive advantages necessary to succeed in the global marketplace, Telx remains committed to serving customers in key markets like Phoenix with the best colocation and interconnection options available," said Telx CEO Eric Shepcaro. "To that end, we continue to add space as demand dictates in order to effectively help customers grow their businesses and take advantage of the newest, market-leading technologies."

Demand for colocation space and interconnection services remains high in Phoenix; 33 percent of Telx's new space in 120 East Van Buren Street has already been sold. The Phoenix facility also houses The Telx Internet Exchange, the region's densely connected Internet Exchange that leverages the Phoenix facility's interconnection strength and Ethernet platform to provide one of the most secure, reliable peering platforms available today.

"Having quick, easy, and scalable access to a wide variety of carriers as well as other networks allows our customers to provision service quickly and easily," said Jim Gillis, President of AGL Networks.
