Telx, a provider of global interconnectivity and datacenter solutions, together with Peak (formerly PeakColo), an enterprise- class Cloud Computing IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) provider to channel partners, announced Peak's expansion into two Telx data centers, SCL2, a 40,000 square foot data center at 2820 Northwestern Parkway in Santa Clara, California and in ATL1, a 160,000 square foot data center located at 56 Marietta Street in Atlanta, Ga.
According to a release, the partnership allows clients to plug into Peak's platform and immediately benefit from a customizable set of cloud services, managed storage and backup services, while leveraging Telx's access to both regional and global networks. The deployment of Peak's cloud platforms and 100 percentSLA on cloud services in Telx data centers represents a new era for Telx as the company continues to invest in strategic partnerships to provide clients with new cohesive managed storage, backup services and cloud and hybrid-cloud solutions along with Telx's commitment of a 100 percent SLA on colocation services.
"By locating in Telx data centers, we can offer our mutual clients an award winning platform, excellent latency, reliability, scalability, and connectivity to other enterprises and cloud providers," said Luke Norris, CEO, Peak. "Our relationship with Telx offers a number of benefits to customers, including a variety of architectural options. Customers will be able to enjoy the benefits of hybrid solutions that include enterprise data centers, hosted private clouds and colocation-based resources, Peak cloud services, and tethering to third party cloud providers."
"Peak represents the latest in a broad range of cloud service providers that have selected Telx, ranging from IaaS to SaaS (Software as a Service) providers. We are servicing some of the world's largest network service providers and enterprises across a wide range of business verticals, such as digital media and entertainment, social networks, video streaming, financial services, healthcare, retail, other cloud companies, and startups," said Chris Downie, CEO, Telx. "The diversity and ability to interact with hundreds of businesses in our Telx ecosystem creates and provides growth opportunities for all participants across our 20 data centers from coast to coast."
In addition, the groups noted:
Telx's 20 highly interconnected data centers, offering hundreds of network service providers and tens of thousands of connections combined with Peak's cloud computing services leadership provides customers a unique value proposition for interactive applications with uncertain demand. Telx and Peak plan to have highly coordinated efforts in offering leading cloud, connectivity, managed services and colocation solutions to new and existing clients.

Peak plans additional cloud node expansions with Telx over the course of 2014 to accommodate client growth.
Peak's newest cloud nodes will be available in January 2014 to the entire Telx and Peak ecosystem. Peak is the first named partner in Telx's Enablement Program, cementing a partnership that strengthens Peak's cloud presence throughout North America and increases Telx's portfolio of products for its clients.
