Globalinx Data Centers, Virginia Beach’s Tier III carrier-neutral data centre campus that resides less than 800 yards away from Marea and Brusa cables in Virginia Beach, has completed its diverse fibre cable tie in.

Globalinx strategic campus location offers zero latency, and unparalleled diversity for their global carriers and tenants as all customers are automatically on-net to Telxius facilities at the CLS by being a cross connect away as opposed to accessing these cables in other facilities that are over 100 miles away. Telxius is the telecommunication infrastructure company of the Telefonica Group, a main part of the Marea and Brusa projects.

“Globalinx is well aware that network operators and enterprises are constantly seeking access to undersea cable infrastructure and are often faced with expensive backhaul/longhaul and interconnect costs, our strategy from the start is to provide a workable pricing model for all users and provide a secure carrier neutral facility that is on-net to the highest capacity subsea cables to minimize points of failure,” said Greg Twitt (pictured), CEO and founder of Globalinx Data Centers.

The Virginia Beach CLS is home to the world’s two highest capacity subsea cables MAREA and BRUSA. The transatlantic MAREA cable has reached 200Tbps per second of transmission capacity. MAREA is a joint project by Telxius, Microsoft and Facebook connecting Virginia Beach to Sopelana in the north of Spain. BRUSA is a Telxius project featuring a 138Tbps capacity.

The BRUSA cable connects Virginia Beach with San Juan (Puerto Rico), Rio de Janeiro and Fortaleza (Brazil). Globalinx carrier neutral data centre campus offers a uniqueness by residing on Corporate Landing Pkwy in Virginia Beach by being in close proximity to two diverse terrestrial landing routes consisting of Camp Pendleton and Sandbridge. Globalinx is poised to make Virginia Beach a new digital hub to provide disaster recovery connecting to diverse routes away from the New York, New Jersey, and Florida corridors.

“Globalinx was quick to recognize the opportunity that Telxius was bringing to the Virginia Beach corridor a little over 2 years ago and we couldn’t be more pleased to work with a company that is so accommodating. We are collaborating in making Virginia Beach a new international gateway for the world” said Greg Twitt CEO and Founder of Globalinx Data Centers LLC.
