Voxel Expands its Cloud via 8 Equinix Sites
August 10th, 2010 By: Rich Miller
Voxel has expanded its VoxCLOUD service by leveraging the Equinix network of data centers to deploy additional infrastructure across three continents, the company said today.
Voxel, which provides managed hosting and CDN services, was able to quickly build out its cloud platform across eight strategic markets, including Chicago, Dallas, Washington, D.C., New York, Silicon Valley, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and Singapore.
“The VoxCLOUD hybrid cloud is resonating really well with our customers, and we need a data center platform capable of supporting explosive growth,” said Raj Dutt, the CEO of Voxel. “We couldn’t afford a six to nine month lead time to turn up a location. What’s more, dramatic differences from one market to the next can impede our efforts to quickly go to market. But with Equinix, we were able to leverage their comprehensive scale and readily deploy into three markets on three continents in just three months.”
Voxel delivers applications for more than1,000 customers on its infrastructure. The company is a long-time Equinix customer.
“Voxel has been delivering services through Equinix for almost a decade, and we’ve supported them as they’ve grown into one of the leading high-performance infrastructure providers in the market,” said Vincent DiMemmo, general manager,Global Cloud & IT Services at Equinix. “We look forward to supporting Voxel through this rapid, global expansion and the delivery of new and exciting cloud services.”
