Internap Network Services Corporation, a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, announced that it plans to set up a new data center facility in the New York metro area to meet the growing demands for data center capacity. This new facility by Internap is the company’s twefth company controlled facility. It is also proof to the strategy employed by Internap to build a geographically diversified data center platform. The new data center will feature Internap’s portfolio of colocation and managed, dedicated and cloud hosting services as well as its route-optimized Performance IP™ and content delivery network services that combine to serve customers’ high-performance IT Infrastructure needs.
Located in Secaucus, N.J., Internap’s new data center is in close proximity to the bridges and tunnels into Manhattan, the NJ Turnpike, the Secaucus Junction train station and the New Yorkmetro area’s three international airports. The 100,000 square-foot facility will provide modular designs and the latest power and cooling technologies to deliver power densities of up to 12 kW per cabinet to economically support long-term customer growth. The facility will use Internap’s award-winning green data center building practices, including a high-efficiency UPS system, a cooling system that uses outside air for free cooling, reclaimed building materials and sustainable operational best practices.
“We did extensive due diligence when researching the site of our new data center and believe the Secaucus location provides an ideal mix of space, power, connectivity options and access to a range of customers and industries,” said Mike Higgins, senior vice president of data center services at Internap. “With our two existing New York metro area data centers nearing capacity in the second half of 2013, the new Secaucus facility underscores our commitment to the New York market and our customers’ increasing demand for our cloud, hosting, colocation and route-optimized IP services”.
The first phase of the Secaucus data center is expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2013.
