NEW YORK, N.Y., March 6 — Telx, a leading provider of global interconnectivity, cloud enablement services and datacenter solutions, today announced the availability of DBR360's public and private cloud solutions at its existing NJR2 and soon to be completed NJR3 data center facilities located within Telx's fully-owned data center campus in Clifton, N.J.. Under the agreement, DBR360 will offer their IaaS or Infrastructure as a Service for customized platforms to leverage Telx's high-density of networks and interconnection services for both new and existing clients. DBR360's tailored options provide customers with flexibility when deciding upon application service providers, and cloud architecture.
DBR360's service leverages the Telx Connect Portfolio to rapidly provide customized cloud-service options throughout the NYC Metro area that includes the Telx Clifton campus along with Telx's NYC1 and NYC2 facilities in New York City. The two facilities on the Telx Clifton campus create a unique location that allows a client to establish physical redundancy and customized cloud solutions in two completely separate infrastructures while managed by one operator.
"Uniting a robust network infrastructure into the cloud served is a natural fit for Telx's high density network interconnection services," said Anthony Lobretto, vice president of engineering and technology solutions, DBR360. "Most cloud providers offer network connectivity limited to access over the internet. Many of our customers require private networks that provide greater levels of performance, security and integration with their existing corporate networks. Oftentimes the network aspect of cloud computing is overlooked."
"Partnering with DBR360 on this endeavor further illustrates Telx's role as a cloud enabler. The breadth of network and cloud service providers within our facilities is a distinguishing advantage," said John Freimuth, Telx's General Manager of Cloud and Enterprise Solutions. "Some clients have preexisting relationships with carriers, and the flexibility of our network combined with the customized solutions offered by DBR360, allows us to mirror our customers network architecture to their specific needs within our facility."
The Telx's Clifton datacenter campus encompasses its NJR2 data center facility at 100 Delawanna Avenue and the soon to be completed flagship facility, "NJR3" also located within the campus. Like all of Telx datacenters, the Telx Clifton campus is a managed, carrier-neutral, secure environment for enterprises, digital media and bio-pharm companies, financial services, network providers and carriers. The expanded campus provides Telx and DBR360 customers with access to an end-to-end cloud and network infrastructure service for IT organizations with enterprise cloud performance.
