Windstream Wholesale Adds Cyxtera and Digital Realty Data Centers to Its Portfolio

Windstream Wholesale, a flexible provider of advanced network communications, has expanded its services to high-demand data centers, establishing a new presence at Cyxtera´s CH3 center in Elk Grove, Illinois, and at Digital Realty´s center in Richardson, Texas, the company said.

This expansion has been driven by demand from content providers and hyperscale companies and continues Windstream´s philosophy of making it easy for customers to reach and leverage its network.

Windstream´s investment to expand into Cyxtera´s CH3 data center augments its deep presence in the Chicagoland area including other data centers at 350 E. Cermark St., 9333 Grand Ave., and 427 LaSalle St. Cyxtera´s Elk Grove location provides Windstream customers with easy access to popular Windstream routes from Chicago including transport waves south towards Texas, west towards Denver and the Bay Area, east to Cleveland, Ashburn, New York and Virginia Beach.

Digital Realty´s Richardson location provides direct connectivity to the top Dallas data centers in the Windstream network, notably 2323 Bryan St. and 1950 N. Stemmons Freeway. It also gives Windstream low-latency connections to the other nine data centers in the market. Customers have historically relied on Windstream to provide diverse options from Dallas to Ashburn, Atlanta, Phoenix, and other key markets plus cross border access to Mexico. These same high-capacity routes are available to/from the Digital Realty´s Richardson data center.
