July 26th, 2010 By: Rich Miller
UK-based managed hosting provider DediPowerhas set up a point of presence and colocation space with Telx at 60 Hudson Street, one of the premier connectivity hubs in Manhattan. The new colo space will support DediPower’s Public Cloud offering, which the company announced last week, in addition to its managed hosting offerings.
“DediPower was in need of a Manhattan colocation facility to extend our state-side coverage and provide connectivity to our overseas customers,” said Craig Martin, CEO of DediPower. “We looked for the colocation partner within the U.S. that had the most strategic locations and the largest number of service providers we could choose from to ensure reliable application and storage service delivery.
“Our international and North American customers can directly tap into our infrastructure on a guaranteed, high-speed connection in the 60 Hudson Street location, without going over the public Internet. The Telx solution provides our managed private cloud network the high redundancy, security and connectivity choice we require.”
Telx offers colocation space and interconnection services that allow companies reduce their connectivity costs by making direct connections with other networks. The company has colo facilities and meet-me-rooms in 15 of America’s leading “carrier hotels” in major markets.
For DediPower, that connectivity can translate into low-latency access to its cloud applications and managed hosting network infrastructure, including its content delivery network and public cloud.
60 Hudson Street, previously owned by Western Union, has a lengthy history as a cornerstone in the development of America’s communications infrastructure. The 943,000 square foot facility was built between 1928-30 at a cost of nearly $45 million – which, adjusted for inflation, is the equivalent of more than $400 million today. It initially housed 70 million feet of wire and 30 miles of conduit.
