Telx has announced completion of expansion in a pair of New York data centers. The company's CEO Chris Downie told us last year it was adding capacity in two of the city's key carrier hotels.
Telx has added 15,000 square feet of data center space at 32 Avenue of the Americas and 17,000 square feet at 60 Hudson St. The buildings are important connectivity hubs not just for the U.S. but for the global Internet.
Telx's NYC1 at 60 Hudson now has 40,000 square feet of data center space available. The provider's customers who needed to expand in the facility have already started to move in equipment, the company said in a statement.
The Telx facility at 32 Avenue of the Americas is the company's third in the New York data center market, dubbed NYC3. Telx exclusively operates the interconnection room in the building, following a 2013 agreement.
It completed a built-out of colocation capacity in April 2014. Through an agreement establishing a global telecommunications company as a long-term tenant, Telx has increased capacity by adding a new floor. Its total footprint in the building is now 120,000 square feet.
At 60 Hudson, Telx is taking space with wholesale provider DataGryd, one of the newest players to enter the Manhattan market. The company has four floors in the building. In September, it announced the launch of the facility with Telx as the anchor tenant, which had leased about 70,000 square feet of build-to-suit space there.
In the wider New York Metro, Telx now serves over 870 customers across 700,000 square feet in six data centers. It has presence at Google-owned 111 8th Avenue. Google, which bought the building for office space, has reportedly not allowed tenants to renew their leases there, including data center providers. Internap is one data center provider that recently moved out because its lease had expired.
"New York City remains a strategic market for us as we continue to grow our customer base and foster interconnection between enterprises and service providers in the region as well as those across the globe," Telx CEO Chris Downie said in a statement. "Expansions in NYC1 and NYC3 allow us to increase our connectivity-dense colocation capacity while securing and accelerating additional footprint in North America's most strategic data center market.”
