NWAX Goes Live in Portland's vXchnge

May 17, 2017

The Northwest Access Exchange (NWAX) is now available within the vXchnge data center in Portland, Ore. That means new interconnections are now possible via the vXchnge cloud marketplace.

“As this city and its economy continues to innovate, businesses must make changes to their infrastructure to allow for scalable growth, without taking on huge costs,” said Northwest Access Exchange President Eric Rosenberry. “They also need a data center that meets and exceeds the most stringent requirements when it comes to security and support. With vXchnge's Portland data center, we get a partner with resilient infrastructure, 100 percent power availability, and expanded growth connectivity.”

Northwest Access Exchange is a not-for-profit vendor-neutral facility and network in Portland. It serves at least 86 public and private networks.

Members include Akamai, Amazon.com, Charter, the City of Portland, Google, NetFlix, Yahoo!, and many others.

The Northwest Access Exchange is the fourteenth largest interexchange in the U.S. and the second largest non-commercial one in the nation.

vXchnge is a carrier neutral colocation services provider. It has 14 data centers across the U.S., through which it brings companies closer to the edge.

The company says that using vXchnge facilities provides enterprises with a wider selection of carrier and service options as well as more flexibility and leverage in setting terms. Colocation can also help businesses and other organizations become more agile, avoid the costs of a new site build, divest their owned data center infrastructure, more effectively address disaster recovery, support international growth, and dedicate more resources to their core business and offload some of their non-core efforts.

“Our partnership with NWAX provides customers with access to the Pacific Northwest's peering fabric, expanding peering options and enhancing our cloud interconnection exchange,” said Ernest Sampera, Chief Marketing Officer at vXchnge. “Customers depend on their interconnected applications that are crucial to running their business. Our data centers have vXchnge technicians on-site 24 hours a day who provide rapid response and immediate support for our customers' critical online applications.”

We are back in Las Vegas, this time at Interop ITX 2017, the rejuvenated version of Interop. As I have written in the past, Interop has a long history back to the mid-1980's and has reinvented itself many times. Interop ITX 2017 is the newest edition, with only paid attendees and no more free passes to the expo floor. UBM, the owner of Interop, intends to increase the quality of attendees, sessions and leads for exhibitors and sponsors.
