The Westin Building Exchange (WBX) in Seattle has completed the first phase of a new expansion of its Seattle-based colocation facilities.
In response to the increased Pacific north-west demand of
carriers, content and cloud providers requiring cost-effective,
direct access to American, Asian and Canadian
telecommunications markets, WBX is adding 1MW of critical power
capacity to accommodate the growing needs of both new and
existing colocation customers.
"The reason that organisations want to establish a presence
within the Westin Building is due to the availability of
multiple, cost-effective connectivity options. The 1MW
expansion of critical power capacity at WBX demonstrates our
commitment to providing infrastructure space that grows with
our customers’ evolving business requirements
while maximising their connectivity options," said Kyle Peters,
general manager of the Westin Building Exchange.
WBX provides neutral connectivity points to American, Asian,
Canadian and European network service providers, carriers, and
ISPs. It also provides access to numerous other networks via
the Seattle Internet Exchange and the Pacific Northwest
The availability of 1MW of capacity in a concurrently
maintainable 2N configuration was launched this month, and will
continue to be introduced in phases.
