Telx(R), a leading provider of global interconnectivity, cloud
enablement services and datacenter solutions, today announced
significant expansions of its CHI1 data center at 350 E. Cermak
Chicago, IL, along with its PHX1 facility at 120 E. Van Buren
Phoenix, AZ. Telx's CHI1 facility, strategically located in downtown

square feet and one of the most critical facilities for the financial
services industry. Inside that facility, Telx operates the critical
Interconnection area "Meet-Me-Room" and with this expansion provides
colocation services in six independent suites, making Telx one of the
largest colocation providers in the facility. Today's announcement
also highlights a 60 percent footprint expansion of its PHX1 facility

digital media, financial markets and enterprises of various sizes.
The continued growth of Telx's colocation and interconnection
services provide the uptime and security that critical applications

"Today's announcement expands our services in one of Chicago's most
important locations for enterprises across the Midwest for deploying
and connecting key edge applications," said Ron Sterbenz, vice
president of marketing for Telx. "It's an important expansion in a
location that other providers had exhausted their available space in
and yet is very unique in its proximity to service Chicago and the
larger Midwest. CHI1 offers a high degree of interconnectivity
between enterprises as well as an ideal facility for firms to place
network service nodes for tethering back to other cloud and SaaS
providers such as AWS and other services. We remain committed to
expanding in markets where this digital demand continues to grow
across all verticals."
"We are pleased to extend our relationship with Telx at 350 E.
Cermak, the location continues to serve as a cornerstone for
enterprises of all types who require network and interconnection
densities. While many providers embark on building ecosystems of
content and service providers, Telx is well beyond the development
stage and extensively interconnected with many of Chicago's premier
companies and brands," said Patrick McSween, director of channel
sales at Digital Realty Trust.
"In addition to improving performance and uptime of critical
applications, our PHX1 facility is ideal for digital media and
enterprise companies looking for a premier location for operation or
disaster recovery," said Ken Kajikawa, general manager for digital
media at Telx. "Phoenix's low percentage of natural disasters and
incidences provides an ideal and secure environment for Telx's
customers who rely on consistent service delivery for content that is
critical to their business models."
