Flexential has launched a new wholesale data centre offering aimed at enterprises, mobile carriers, as well as content and cloud providers.
The solution offers access to Flexential’s
hybrid IT solutions including network transport, managed and
cloud solutions, and professional services.
Flexential offers wholesale data centre space in 14 US
markets, providing enterprise customers with power commitments
from 250kW to more than 10 megawatts. It also has a number of
connectivity options which includes a 100Gbps network
connecting its 41 data centres with customer locations, peering
exchanges and on-ramps to hyperscale cloud providers.
Through its offering, Flexential’s customers
can access more than 80 domestic and international carriers,
with connections to Asia and the South Pacific via the
New Cross Pacific and
Hawaiki subsea cable systems.
"Given the increasing scale of today's workload
requirements, the demand for cost-effective, state of the art
colocation facilities and connectivity options is growing
dramatically among large-scale enterprises," said Chris Downie,
CEO at Flexential.
"No other provider featuring a wholesale offering can
provide such comprehensive services and capabilities. As a
result, we've already seen that our wholesale data center
solutions are helping customers future-proof their IT
strategies – all while lowering the total cost of
ownership and enabling an easy growth path to scale."
Flexential recently announced that the
New Cross Pacific subsea cable is now live, delivering a
fast, low-latency direct network connection between the US and
New Cross Pacific,
