Netrality Data Centers, a New York, NY-based operator of strategic interconnected data centers, as per recent reports this week, has announced that NYIIX (New York International Internet eXchange), one of the largest neutral internet exchange (IX) points in the world, will be expanding its fabric deployment process to Netrality’s 401 North Broad facility in Philadelphia.
The NYIIX exchange’s (operated by Telehouse America) fabric buildout to 401 North Broad is part of a strategically planned expansion to make way through into the Philadelphia market, where there is “strong and growing local demand,” according to NYIIX. The new NYIIX Philadelphia location will also be closing in on the long-lasting gap, establishing a connection link between New York City and data center hotspot in Virginia.
According to Akio Sugeno, Vice President of Internet Engineering, Operations & Business Development at Telehouse America, this service expansion is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to tackle head on the changing data transport and connectivity needs for an ever-expanding customer base operating in the US and the world altogether. In a statement, Sugeno said, “The role of internet exchanges is becoming more vital to digital transformation through greater connectivity and services. Our deployment of NYIIX Fabric to Netrality’s data center will enable us to better meet the needs of customers in the Philadelphia market through more robust exchange connectivity and services.”
Phil Calantoni, Director of Business Development at Netrality Philadelphia, said, “NYIIX is a key enhancement to our ecosystem at 401 North Broad. The expansion ensures traffic is kept local, resulting in reduced latency for our customers and the entire Philadelphia region.”
