New York, NY (July 13, 2011) – Telx®, a leading interconnection and data center provider in strategic North American markets, today announced that Bat Blue, a provider of end-to-end cloud, network and security technologies and services, has joined the Telx cloudXchange. Bat Blue joined Telx’s secure, carrier-neutral Cloud Connection Centers in New York City, New Jersey and Atlanta to bring their next-generation cloud solutions to the Telx community. By joining the Telx cloudXchange, Bat Blue can offer Telx’s customers at these Cloud Connection Centers direct access to its industry-leading cloud solutions, including its extreme-performance, low-latency BlueNET IP network, backed by Telx’s Private Interconnect service activation capabilities of less than 24 hours and an availability of 99.999 percent.
“Bat Blue is pleased to be part of the Telx cloudXchange, as it enables us to deliver our cloud services faster and more efficiently,” said Babak Pasdar, President and CEO of Bat Blue. “By integrating into the Telx Cloud Connection Centers, our customers gain access to our unique cloud services while reducing expense and burden.”
Bat Blue's cloud services address the integrity and availability of cloud-computing infrastructure, as well as resiliency in connectivity to cloud-computing platforms. Bat Blue enables organizations to leverage cloud-computing successfully by implementing a network and security perimeter in the cloud to distribute and secure their data between various cloud providers. This alleviates reliance on a sole provider and empowers users to demand the most competitive rates and services.
Bat Blue's cloud services are powered by their BlueNET IP network, designed and purpose-built to overcome the “Cloud Penalty” of latency or application delivery lag. BlueNET utilizes Bat Blue’s proprietary, “Intelligent Hot-Potato-Extreme” model that guarantees “One-Hop-Out” connectivity. By joining the Telx cloudXchange community in four key Cloud Connection Centers, Bat Blue can streamline the delivery of its BlueNET cloud services by building 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 like Bat Blue 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 proudly welcomes Bat Blue to our cloudXchange community and Cloud Connection Centers, empowering them to deliver customers the networking and security solutions for the future while utilizing Telx's reliable, responsive, “on-premise” solutions backed by our own service level agreements (SLAs),” said Eric Shepcaro, CEO of Telx. “Our Cloud Connection Centers give Bat Blue the proximity, low latency and flexibility required to optimize their mix of services, securely and cost-effectively. By joining our cloudXchange, a fast-growing ecosystem of hundreds of networks, Bat Blue will be able to meet the demands of its enterprise customers in New York, New Jersey and Atlanta as well as other neighboring locations.”
