The Marketplace utilizes an innovative social networking interface allowing participants to build searchable profiles to market services or discover products and request quotes from potential business partners as well as content or cloud providers. Marketplace creates an easy to use, interactive virtual market that speeds up the connection between various parties. With matchmaking alerts, clients can see who is researching their products and initiate outreach based on that information. In addition, advanced search filters provide a quick and easy way for marketplace participants to discover services based on similar communities and geographic location.

The Marketplace combines all of the networking and matchmaking benefits of Telx’s Marketplace LIVE event into an online virtual platform. Telx’s Marketplace LIVE, an industry leading brand exposure and networking event, will bring together Telx’s global marketplace of clients with thought leaders in the areas of cloud computing, financial services, telecommunications and media in the fall of 2012 in New York City. The Marketplace’s social networking features offer our clients a unique way to collaborate and forge new relationships and business opportunities at any time and from any location.
“It’s often the case that potential business partners are just a simple cross-connect away from customers in a multi-tenant data center,” said Kelly Morgan, senior analyst for 451 Research. “As providers, particularly of cloud services, seek to connect with each other and their customers, tools that facilitate these connections will help enable continued growth and will be a key differentiator for their hosts.”
