Colocation specialist Telx has opened a new data center in Silicon Valley, expanding the
company’s interconnection platform in one of the nation’s key technology hotbeds. The Telx
SCL2 cloud connection center offers 32,000 square feet of data center space in Santa Clara,
Calif., the hub of the Silicon Valley data center market.
Telx is one of the first tenants in V1, the latest wholesale data center project brought to market
by Vantage Data Centers. Telx already operates facilities at 1100 Space Park in Santa Clara and
the 200 Paul Avenue in San Francisco.
“Silicon Valley is one of the most dynamic business environments in the world and Telx
remains committed to these customers by meeting their growing needs for robust and secure
infrastructure and global network connectivity,” said Eric Shepcaro, the CEO of Telx. “Our
clients need flexibility and access options to deliver content that meets the ever changing
demands of the consumer. Today’s grand opening event opens an exciting new chapter of
expansions for Telx and our customers.”
The Telx Santa Clara facility supports power densities up to 400 watts per square foot or
16KW per cabinet in a 2N redundant infrastructure design. That’s the highest power density
currently offered in any Telx facilities. The SCL2 facility is a managed, carrier-neutral networking
environment for carriers, ISPs, content providers, financial service companies, bio-pharma and
Wholesale data center operators like Vantage typically seek to have at least one colocation
provider as a tenant, as this creates opportunities for customers who would like to house
equipment at the campus, but may not require the 500 kilowatts to 1 megawatt of power that
typically are the entry points for wholesale leases.
