Cloud Hosting provider DigitalOcean has expanded its cloud platform after deploying additional virtual servers in Telx’s SCL2 data center in Santa Clara, California. DigitalOcean already has data center infrastructure available in Telx‘s SFR1 data center in San Francisco.
As a cloud utility provider with a focus on developers, DigitalOcean is headquartered in New York City and has servers located in New York, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Singapore and London.
DigitalOcean is now housing their non-network infrastructure needs in Telx’s SCL2 data center, a purpose built, high-density colocation facility. SCL2 is enabling the cloud hosting provider to serve its immediate infrastructure needs while having the flexibility to accommodate growth. SCL2 further serves as a strategic location based on its proximity to DigitalOcean’s peering and network hubs within the Bay Area.
“DigitalOcean has a proximity and latency advantage with Telx’s NYC2 and SFR1 data centers as well as scale advantages in the NJR3 and SCL2 facilities,” said Mitch Wainer, Chief Marketing Officer and founder, DigitalOcean. “None of this is possible without national solutions and facilities focused on capability sets and this is why we decided to expand our relationship with Telx.”
A privately held company headquartered in New York with west coast operations out of San Francisco, Telx serves a broad range of industries from 20 data centers located across 13 US markets: the New York/New Jersey metro area, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Clara, Seattle, Portland, Atlanta, Miami, Phoenix and Charlotte, N.C. Telx manages 1.3 million square feet of data center space.
