Telx, a domestic provider of colocation and data center services within 13 strategic North American markets, has announced two cloud nodes are now online in its Santa Clara and Atlanta data centers allowing direct access to Telx’ Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud hosting platform powered by Peak.
The new core nodes reside in 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.
To celebrate the opening of these new cloud nodes, Telx and Peak are offering special incentives to clients who establish new cloud hosting service including hybrid configurations, which leverage both Telx colocation and the Peak-powered cloud hosting platform. Among the incentives is a simplified migration plan, available until June 30, 2014, that includes:
- Free data transfer to the Telx Enabled Cloud, Powered by Peak
- Free bandwidth [10 Gbps] until all customer data is seeded in Peak’s cloud
