(The Hosting News) – Top colo provider Telx on Wednesday unveiled a major data center expansion in areas including its Chicago, Illinois and Phoenix, Arizona markets.
Specifically, Telx’s Chicago space now accounts for 1.1 million square feet while the company’s Phoenix facility has expanded by 60%.
Telx VP of marketing Ron Sterbenz, meanwhile, emphasized the expansion’s importance, noting other providers in the Chicago area had exhausted their available space.
“Today’s announcement expands our services in one of Chicago’s most important locations for enterprises across the Midwest for deploying and connecting key edge applications,” Sterbenz commented in a press release.
The move also continues Telx’s relationship with facility provider Digital Realty which administers the building in Chicago. Patrick McSween, a director of channel sales at Digital Realty said the Chicago area “continues to serve as a cornerstone for enterprises of all types who require network and interconnection densities.”
Telx’s Chicago data center features dedicated cooling towers, manned security, dedicated pad mounted transformers and more. The facility previously faced a major renovation in 1999. Meanwhile, the Arizona data center features tech specs like redundant cooling and totals 175 thousand square feet.
The colo provider maintains other locations in the U.S. market including Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, Charlotte and New York. The unveiling follows a previous announcement last month in which the company said it would service the Pacific Northwest through a Seattle data center.
