Telx opens third New York City data center

Telx, an interconnection and data center services provider, has opened up its 20th data center at 32 Avenue of the Americas (6th Ave) in New York City, a key Internet hub. With the opening of the new location at NYC3, Telx now has three facilities in New York City and a total of six in the greater New York/New Jersey metro area.

The service provider has been chosen by the Rudin Family to manage and operate the HUB, a carrier-neutral meet-me room that aggregates voice, data and wireless service providers at 32 Avenue of the Americas. In addition, Telx will develop a new tenth-floor data center with the opportunity to expand into other floors throughout the building.

"The establishment of NYC3 at 32 Avenue of the Americas provides Telx's clients and prospects with a comprehensive connectivity solution and another option for expansion in New York City that is equal to the expertise and operational compliance that Telx delivers at NYC1 and NYC2," said Chris Downie, president and chief financial officer for Telx, in a release.

As a facility that includes 40 key participants and 90 service providers, NYC3's Interconnection Center will leverage Telx's connectivity environments at both NYC1 (60 Hudson) and NYC2 (111 8th Ave), offering its customer base access to over 600 network alternatives.
