New York, NY -- May 2, 2012 -- Telx®, a leading provider of global interconnectivity, cloud computing enablement services and data center solutions, today announced that Unitas Global has deployed private managed hosting facilities within two Telx data centers. Unitas Global, a leading managed infrastructure provider, is expanding to new markets in support of a growing customer base with Telx's carrier-neutral, network-rich facilities in Dallas, TX and Miami, FL. By establishing a presence in Telx's Dallas and Miami locations, Unitas Global can quickly and cost-effectively deliver its healthcare, online gaming, finance and entertainment customers strategically-located private cloud infrastructure.
"Placing our Infrastructure-as-a-Service delivery platform in Telx's connectivity-dense facilities enables better performance for users by shortening Internet paths," said Grant Kirkwood, founder and CEO of Unitas Global. "By partnering with Telx in two strategic locations in North America, we can achieve our goal in building private cloud solutions for unique customer applications with seamless service regardless of location."
Companies such as Unitas Global rely on multiple Points of Presence (PoPs) to expand the regions they serve, thereby enabling them to pursue new opportunities with more enterprise customers and service provider partners. Dallas is considered one of the most centrally-located, high-demand U.S. cities for Internet traffic, prompting Unitas Global to select Telx's 2323 Bryan St. data center. One of the premier Internet gateways in North America, Telx's Dallas data center is ideal for direct access to large enterprise backbones, national telecommunications carriers and major game server networks. Additionally, Unitas Global chose Telx's Miami facility because of the multi-carrier relationships it offers and its proximity to Latin America.
"More customers are seeking ways to differentiate their services by improving their overall quality of service and reach to new markets. The fact that Unitas Global selected Telx's Dallas and Miami facilities is a testament to Telx's ability to deliver that advantage," said Ron Sterbenz, vice president of marketing for Telx. "We look forward to providing this core infrastructure with connectivity choice and the resiliency needed to deliver premium business services to customers across the U.S."
