Data Center Spotlight - PRT1

May 19, 2014  |  Written by Jeremy Dodds, Vice President, Sales

A few weeks back, we highlighted our flagship data center over on the east coast: NJR3. While NJR3 is a cutting edge facility located in New Jersey, our commitment to excellence extends far past the east coast. We also have many industry leading data centers throughout the country, spanning all the way over to the west coast.

One such data center on the west coast is PRT1. PRT1, located in Hillsboro, Oregon, just outside of downtown Portland, is Telx’s Portland C3 Cloud Connection Center, providing an immense number of connectivity options for clients in the Northwest.

As many people know, Portland is home to many large, international businesses, in sectors from software and activewear, to advanced manufacturing and clean technology. Portland has experienced a lot of growth in recent years, and that’s only expected to continue as time goes on. For clients looking for a competitive business environment and for great connectivity, PRT1 is hard to beat.

There are many reasons why PRT1 is such a great option for businesses in the Northwest with data center services needs. Here are just a few:

  • Complete Northwest colocation capability: In conjunction with SEA1 to the North in Seattle, and SFR1 in San Francisco, and SCL1 and SCL2 in Santa Clara to the South, PRT1 offers businesses complete Northwest colocation capability. Colocating across the Northwest gives you fast connections to some of the nation’s leading markets.
  • Support for power consuming needs: PRT1 offers a full 2N+1 UPS design, allowing it to support client loads of 325 watts per square foot—exactly what’s needed for power consuming applications like gaming, media, and other SaaS applications and services. Coupled with its PUE rating of 1.3, PRT1 is an ideal location for businesses in need of significant amounts of power for their applications.
  • Competitive business environment: As I mentioned above, Portland is home to many large, international businesses. Portland isn’t only a great place to colocate—it’s also a great business environment. Colocating at PRT1 gives you direct access to one of the nation’s most competitive environments for businesses, ensuring that you’re in close contact with any products or services that fall within your business needs.

From NJR3 in New Jersey, to PRT1 in Portland, Telx’s data centers offer businesses all of the capabilities and services they need to remain competitive in and beyond the data center services space. With industry leading power capabilities, unparalleled connections to the world’s most competitive markets, and colocation all across the country, we’re here to ensure that your business has everything it needs to succeed.
