Telx announced in mid-January that the expansion of two of its New York data centers is complete. The company added nearly 100,000 square feet between the two facilities.
The first New York data center, NYC1, serves as a flagship facility for Telx. The site offers one of the most dense carrier and enterprise connectivity environments in the world, and an expansion became a necessity as a growing number of customers have critical expansion requirements. Extra space was secured in 2013 and an additional 40,000 square feet of available space has now been added to the facility.
The second Telx New York data center to receive an expansion is actually the company's third facility in the city. NYC3 was established in December 2013 after an agreement by Telx to operate its interconnection services out of the building. In April 2014, colocation capacity was increased. Telx recently established a partnership with a global telecommunications company for long term tenancy, prompting the creation of an extra floor to give the New York data center a total of more than 120,000 square feet of available space.
The two newly-expanded sites are known as the Urban Giants and serve as cornerstone facilities within Telx's data center portfolio. The company operates six New York data centers across the metropolitan area, with a total presence of approximately 700,000 square feet. The facilities serve more than 870 customers and represent large scale growth for Telx.
"Expansions in NYC1 and NYC3 allow us to increase our connectivity-dense colocation capacity while securing and accelerating additional footprint in North America's most strategic data center market," said Chris Downie, Telx chief executive officer. "Combining these expansions with our NYC2 facilities at 111 8th Avenue and our three New Jersey facilities across the river, Telx offers the largest critically enabled data center solution in the New York City metropolitan area."
