TELEHOUSE Leads the Way Through 2011 with Strategic Global Data Center Expansions
TELEHOUSE America announces to the global telecommunications community its continuing commitment to drive technological innovation and expand its global footprint. Through 2011, TELEHOUSE opened two new carrier-neutral data centers – TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea and TELEHOUSE Istanbul, Turkey. TELEHOUSE also announced a brand new data center in Hong Kong specializing in Cloud Computing, along with further expansion of TELEHOUSE West in London Docklands. TELEHOUSE Istanbul, TELEHOUSE Hong Kong CCC, and the Chelsea facility expand the current global data center portfolio to 42 TELEHOUSE colocation facilities.
TELEHOUSE is continuing a rich tradition of design innovation and engineering excellence that began in 1987 with the construction of “The Teleport” in Staten Island, NY – TELEHOUSE’s flagship, state-of-the-art colocation facility. Since the TELEHOUSE Teleport opened in 1989, TELEHOUSE has expanded throughout 12 countries within North America, Asia, Europe, and Africa to a total of 42 data center sites across the world. TELEHOUSE has been providing superior IT services for over 20 years, alongside parent company KDDI. TELEHOUSE’s most recent additions in New York, Istanbul, London and Hong Kong each represent ever-ascending standards of connectivity and reliability delivered to TELEHOUSE’s customers.
“TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea, TELEHOUSE West in London and TELEHOUSE Istanbul, Turkey, provide secure, carrier-neutral data center services in the heart of the most important, metro business cities in the world’” states Satoshi Adachi, Vice President of TELEHOUSE America. “TELEHOUSE’s recent additions compliment the current portfolio of well-designed, technically advanced colocation facilities and meet the needs of growing market demand in these countries.”
TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea, located between Manhattan’s Chelsea and Meatpacking districts at 85 10th Avenue, opened for business in January 2011. The carrier-neutral facility boasts 60,000 square feet of colocation space, accessible to authorized client personnel on a 24/7 basis, along with the full scope of TELEHOUSE’s Managed IT support services and a selection of eleven different telecommunications carriers. Customer’s IT resources are protected by a redundant, best-in-class, N+1 power infrastructure and security measures, including a perimeter mantrap with biometric access and 24/7 security personnel. Additionally, TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea offers connection to NYIIX (New York International Internet Exchange), New York’s largest, most active IP peering exchange, ranked in the top 10 internationally.
TELEHOUSE Istanbul represents our first data center in Turkey with TELEHOUSE positioned to support the city’s continued economic growth. The country’s growth is attributed to regulation issued by the banks, a youthful population and recent telecom acquisitions strengthening Turkey's global position in broadband and data are all helping the country become a communication hub in the region.
TELEHOUSE Hong Kong CCC was established in direct response to a growing interest in Cloud Computing and increased content and data streaming adoption in the region. Our state of the art data center neighbors the Hong Kong Stock Exchange Data Center and offers high connectivity capacity from local cable landing stations.
Additionally, TELEHOUSE West, London’s premier green colocation facility, added a further 3,500 square feet of space with access to 60 reputable carriers in August 2011.
As TELEHOUSE moves in 2012, expect to see further strategic investment in TELEHOUSE’s global vision. “With more than 20 years’ experience delivering the highest levels of security and connectivity for customers in all our premium colocation sites”, TELEHOUSE has evolved into a trusted global brand in the data center industry,” adds Satoshi Adachi, “With our global footprint continuing to expand, TELEHOUSE is uniquely positioned to offer organizations comprehensive information and communications technology solutions on an international scale.”
