North American data centre operator Telx has expanded its C3 Cloud Connection Centre in Silicon Valley by 32,000 sq ft in a bid to enhance customer experience on a range of services.

The C3 centre is the company’s 17th cloud connection facility, and it is designed to offer co-location and interconnection services to its customers. Co-location customers also have the added advantage of accessing Telx’s global marketplace, in addition to direct access to Silicon Valley’s social networking, e-commerce, gaming, cloud services and storage capabilities.

“Leveraging our new data centre campus locations, Telx is well positioned to meet the needs of Silicon Valley organisations by offering a rich portfolio of collocation and interconnection services – at the lowest energy pricing that surpass area competitors,” said Chris Downie, president and CFO at Telx. “California-based companies have the option to instantly take advantage of cloud-based services while leveraging unprecedented connectivity to the rest of the world.”

Located in the Vantage Data Centre campus locations in California, which are specifically designed to aid green initiatives, the facilities will support power densities of up to 400 watts per sq ft, with a particular focus on reducing the impact these particular data centre facilities have on the environment.

“Vantage Data Centres is an industry leader in the development of large campus environments, giving our customers a strategic advantage with their long-term data centre growth plans,” added Greg Ness, VP marketing, Vantage Data Centres. “As the anchor tenant in our Santa Clara data centre, Telx now has ample room to expand and provide distinctive, high performance data centre services.”
