As content and applications are becoming increasingly bandwidth-intensive, the need for additional capacity to deliver data into Tier II and III markets at the Edge of the network is growing. As a result, enterprises large and small are seeking ways to secure the high-bandwidth connectivity they require to effectively deliver content and services to their end users.
Recognizing this growing need, EdgeConneX® has created a new Edge Data Center (EDC)® model, deploying facilities across underserved markets around the world in North America, Europe and South America. As the demand for additional capacity continues to grow, the company has decided to build out its data center campus in Denver to accommodate new customers as well as the expansion of existing tenants.
EdgeConneX has deployed a new facility on the Denver data center campus offering an additional 21MW of available capacity. In addition, Megaport, a leading Network as a Service provider, will deploy their software defined network within this new building, enabling elastic interconnection services that will securely connect enterprise customers to multiple cloud service providers.
“By expanding our available capacity seven-fold in the Denver market, we can easily scale our existing ecosystems of network and content service providers to include cloud service providers looking to garner hybrid cloud deployment from enterprises,” explained Jeff King, VP & General Manager for Denver Market. “Additionally, by layering in cloud access solutions from Megaport, and managed cloud service providers, we are helping bring cloud solutions locally to Denver.”
EdgeConneX’s EDC campus is located in the heart of the Denver technology center, offering customers a carrier-neutral and high power density facility that is purpose built for the delivery of bandwidth-intensive data delivery to serve content, network, cloud and IT providers. The facilities are capable of supporting deployments of up to 30kW/rack, and Megaport’s interconnection services are designed to scale bandwidth on demand from 1 Mbps to 10 Gbps.
