The Telx cloudXchange community and Cloud Connection Centers are an innovative way for cloud service providers like Voxel to quickly and seamlessly connect their infrastructures to Enterprise end users, leveraging Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to ensure IaaS and application uptime. By joining the Telx cloudXchange, Voxel can now directly offer Telx’s customers at the 111 8th Ave. Cloud Connection Center direct access to its industry-leading cloud solutions, including the popular VoxCLOUD and VoxSERVER hosting offerings, backed by Telx’s Private Interconnect service activation capabilities of less than 24 hours and an availability of 99.999 percent.
“We are very excited about our strategic partnership with Telx. Telx has been a respected name in the interconnection and colocation space for a long time, and we look forward to working with them on scalable web hosting and cloud opportunities,” Said Stephen Callahan, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Voxel. “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.”
The Telx cloudXchange community and Cloud Connection Centers streamline the delivery of cloud services, enabling cloud providers to build distributed, hybrid clouds using private connectivity options. Telx offers cloud and managed hosting providers industry-leading support services, with private connectivity backed by SLAs, so providers have a direct, private connection instead of fighting for bandwidth on the unpredictable public Internet. With Telx’s strategic locations in 15 key U.S. cities, providers can locate these hybrid clouds in densely populated centers where the most customers are, reducing the time and cost of market entry. Providers can also scale up as cloud computing evolves, and choose the best carrier based on latency and switch easily if requirements change.
“Telx created the cloudXchange community and Cloud Connection Centers to give our cloud service provider customers the ability to deliver reliable, responsive, “on-premise” solutions,” said Darryl Brown, Director of Cloud, SaaS and Media for Telx. “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. 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.”
