– Joanna Styczen, spokesperson for iMPR, says:

Rapid content delivery is now one of the most important drivers that companies everywhere are seeking.  In order to achieve it, data needs to be stored and accessed as close to the edge of the network as possible.  EdgeConneX provides this for its customers through a robust network of Edge Data Centers in key locations such as Denver, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland and Sacramento—with future data center rollouts planned for 2014-2015.

One area where EdgeConneX recently expanded its data center portfolio into is Houston, Texas.  This facility was constructed with a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Open-IX (OIX) and includes access to network providers Zayo, Alpheus and Level 3.  Its purpose is to support and deliver high-bandwidth solutions for Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and content providers alike.

EdgeConneX is also expanding into Salt Lake City, Utah.  This facility will offer scalable wholesale and colocation options ranging from single rack to multi-rack systems as well as private, custom cages.  The Salt Lake City Edge Data Center comes with redundant power, high-density cooling and fiber connectivity to surrounding Edge Data Centers and carrier hotels in neighboring states.

As EdgeConneX explained in a recent white paper, Internet bandwidth consumption is becoming a major problem for network operators.  By strategically positioning data centers close to network provider aggregation points, customers can be assured of low latency data delivery as well as improved quality of service.

EdgeConneX helps alleviate long-haul data delivery problems associated with growing content and bandwidth restraints.  By holistically bringing content closer to customers and optimizing it for use, EdgeConneX can reduce the costs and latency frustrations that typically plague end-users.
