I could not be more pleased to announce today that Digital Realty has acquired Telx, in the culmination of the plan we announced in July. This opens a new and transformative chapter in the history of Digital Realty.
We built the global standard for technical real estate, developing a unique capability to acquire, manage, and scale data center campuses. Now, the new Digital Realty is building a unique ecosystem of open solutions powering customer growth through exceptional service, adding to a foundation of unrivaled real estate expertise.
Telx brings the promise of Digital+Realty to life. With the acquisition of this differentiated line of business, we are uniquely positioned to provide a complete range of data center solutions on a global scale that best fit our customers’ needs. At the same time, we can now connect them to the cloud and their critical partners on an open platform.
At our Investor Day on October 6, we outlined the following strategy:
I have had the privilege of meeting many talented Telx employees already, and am eager to meet as many as I can. It is now the obligation of our unified employee base around the world to deliver the value our customers demand and deserve, and I know we are up for the challenge.
The new Digital Realty is about removing limits to global business. We will combine unparalleled service delivery, network-dense interconnection, real estate acumen, and financial strength to create unrivaled choice and value, when and where our customers need it. I look forward to leading our employees worldwide and joining with our alliance partners and customers to bring this promise to life.
