Element Critical Expands Partnership with Crosslink Fiber to Deliver Ultra-High Bandwidth Fiber Network Services
Element Critical, a leading provider of tailored data center and IT infrastructure services backed by solutions engineering expertise with premium data centers in Silicon Valley, Chicago, and Northern Virginia, said that it has expanded its partnership with Crosslink Fiber, LLC, an established fiber‐based network infrastructure operator headquartered in California. This strategic expansion will provide ultra-high bandwidth fiber network services to connect to over 54 data centers in Silicon Valley, the world’s first high-technology region, and the San Francisco Bay area. Additionally, this alliance will provide elasticity and efficiencies that will enable businesses to be agile, empowering them to scale rapidly.
“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,” says Michael Halaburda, founder and VP of Crosslink Fiber. “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,” continues Halaburda. “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.”
A community-focused colocation provider, Element Critical cares as much about the people they serve, as the servers they house. Building and growing valuable relationships with leading industry providers is a significant part of Element Critical’s focus. In addition to the announcement of this partnership expansion, Element Critical recently formed a partnership with Pureport to deliver carrier-neutral, self-service hybrid cloud networking. In February, a partnership was created with Salute Mission Critical, a hands-on technical services organization that provides data center life cycle services allowing military veterans to transition into working in the data center industry. This philanthropic partnership provides Salute Mission Critical with an opportunity to grow its geographic footprint in Chicago with a bundled solution of office space and data center capabilities known as the Salute Mission Critical Global Command Center.
“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,” says Element Critical COO, Wayne Dietrich. “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.”
