Element Critical bills itself as a provider of tailored data center and IT infrastructure services backed by solutions engineering expertise.

Element Critical, a provider of IT infrastructure via its significant U.S. data center footprint, announced on May 12 that it has expanded its partnership with Crosslink Fiber, LLC to provide ultra-high bandwidth fiber network services to connect to over 54 data centers in the Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay areas of California.

"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," commented 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."

Element Critical bills itself as a provider of tailored data center and IT infrastructure services backed by solutions engineering expertise. With data centers in Silicon Valley, Chicago, and Northern Virginia, Element Critical says its Tier III hybrid IT-ready facilities are "carrier-neutral, network-rich, concurrently maintainable and available in a variety of deployment sizes and densities. Element Critical cares as much about the people we serve as the servers we house," continues the provider, which adds that it offers "a data center experience that brings solutions engineering and customer service out of the shadows and into the spotlight."

"Element Critical knows that access to high capacity, low latency networks is one of the most important components of a data center solution," comments Element Critical's COO, Wayne Dietrich. "We know that building solid relationships with network providers will create immense value for those who place their trust in us. 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."

Crosslink (CX) Fiber, LLC is an established fiber‐based network infrastructure operator in California. CX provides highly dense and secure fiber communications services between data centers and to enterprise customers. As contended by the operator's mission statment, "Known for delivering on price, provisioning and performance, CX is the first in a new breed of fiber providers competing against the old incumbent carriers. CX’s built-for-business fiber network delivers the dependability customers need so that they can focus on their business. CX efficiently develops and deploys the newest in fiber optic gear to achieve cost effective delivery of dense 10 to 100 Gigabit wavelength connectivity."

"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," concludes 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."
