Telx is a portfolio company of ABRY Partners, LLC and Berkshire Partners, LLC, two Boston based investment firms. Founded in 2000, Telx built the largest carrier-neutral, physical layer interconnection facility at 60 Hudson Street, NY. In 2004, Telx acquired 56 Marietta Street, the premier carrier hotel building in Atlanta, GA. In December 2006, Digital Realty Trust, owner and manager of technology-related real estate, and Telx entered into an agreement whereby Telx now owns and manages interconnection facilities in 10 Digital Realty Trust buildings in the United States. With this momentum, Telx acquired NYC Connect’s interconnection facilities at 111 Eighth Avenue, NYC in March of 2007. Since 2007, Telx has expanded into four additional facilities (Santa Clara, Dallas, and two in New Jersey) and expanded its footprint within its existing facilities to meet the growing demand for its services. Telx now operates a national portfolio of 19 strategically located interconnection and colocation facilities.
