The company also announced that with this service, clients will be able to access and expand at other data centers. Michael Halaburda, founder and VP of Crosslink Fiber said,
“With this service, clients in Silicon Valley, the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento or LA, can now access Crosslink’s fiber to connect to Element Critical’s Sunnyvale data center in the heart of the Silicon Valley. Our solution provides increased flexibility for those clients who need to access or cannot expand at other data centers.
Our motivation for expanding with Element Critical is due to the strong client base of their Sunnyvale data center and its upcoming capacity augmentation that will add 4 MW of additional power. Offering our rich, 100 gigabit Fiber Network at a cost-effective price along with fast provisioning times, adds to the value that Element Critical is already providing their clients.”
Element Critical COO, Wayne Dietrich said,
“Element Critical knows that access to high capacity, low latency networks is one of the most important components of a data center solution. We know that building solid relationships with network providers will create immense value for those who place their trust in us. Our focus on ‘customer first’ is our commitment and we will continue to offer clients a wide range of connectivity solutions, low latency, private and secure fiber connectivity, and direct access to an increasing number of cloud and service providers.”
