This solution is designed for workloads requiring the greatest number of interconnection options found at peering exchanges, or building network edge access for a number of distributed applications or hybrid cloud solutions with the broadest array of compliance certifications.

Our locations are staffed with teams that have the expertise to maintain your data center deployment and assist your company with any questions or issues. We work to manage and refresh the data center infrastructure to keep everything running smoothly and reliably. It’s our top priority, at all times.

We provide reliable colocation solutions that make certain your focus is on your business by providing much more than just physical space and power.

How does Colocation work?

Colocation is a great solution for IT organizations to enable the quick deployment of their computing infrastructure at remote locations without the large capital outlays or long lead times to develop their own sites. Colocation can be provided where you need it and when you need it, in small or large increments of secure space and power in a highly available and redundant environment. This gives IT organizations the agility to safely and securely deploy infrastructure as needed by the business. Read more about colocation cabinets, cages and suites.

Because we’re able to build state-of-the-art data centers, you receive the benefit of a fortress-like environment for your critical equipment. Additionally, by using these highly available and secure data centers, your essential assets are kept safe even if your company experiences unexpected incidents, such as flooding or fire damage at your corporate locations. Find out how we ensure business continuity and protect your investment with disaster recovery.

Benefits of Colocation

Organizations choose colocation options for their critical data resources and services because they need robust infrastructure they can count on for consistent performance and availability. You might not have the in-house expertise or resources necessary to build the sort of data center that can give your company a competitive edge. Colocation can quickly enable scalable, secure and highly available space and power for your mission-critical computing environments. Our services can help bridge the gap.

These are a few of the benefits our solution offers:

  • Digital Ecosystem As you need to deploy the applications of today and the next-generation applications of the future, we are committed to providing a broad ecosystem to support your application supply chain. Our ecosystem includes, among others:
    • Carrier partners enabling speed of delivery through fastest network paths, Internet peering and cost-effective options to enhance application performance
    • Cloud providers (IaaS, PaaS) enabling next-generation hybrid cloud applications or direct private connections to SaaS providers
    • Content companies providing ad placement services or integration with content providers
  • Agility. Colocation gives the business the ability to quickly procure highly available data center space in a broad range of sizes of deployments. We help clients secure their needed space quickly, with flexibility on where to place deployments.
  • Scalability. As one of the largest builders of data centers on the planet, we work to ensure our clients have the capacity to scale their business and deploy more mission-critical infrastructure when and where it’s needed. You can easily expand your capacity with us as your business grows and drives greater compute, storage and bandwidth needs.
  • Uptime. Organizations need always-on access to their information and processes, and often need to ensure their services are available 24/7 for customers. Our data centers make use of exceptional operational processes refined over years of operating more than 100+ data centers around the world and our staff of highly skilled operational teams to ensure consistent uptime. With 100% uptime SLAs, Telx ensures data is always available and accessible when you and your customers need it.
  • Security. All organizations require secure facilities, data networks and connections, and some industries have special requirements and regulations. Our experts can help ensure your company has the right configuration to meet regulatory guidelines and commitments to your customers.
  • Cost-efficiency. Establishing an on-premises data center includes expenses beyond just the basic equipment. From energy to cooling, internal resources can be freed up by relying on our data centers to maintain your servers and connections. We also offer aggressive pricing to ensure customers receive industry-leading value for their investments.
