Despite multiple reports of New Jersey being in dramatic over-supply, another colocation firm is increasing the available supply of colocation in the New Jersey data center market – see link for our New Jersey data center list. Net Access recently announced that is has started construction of an additional 70,000 gross square feet, expanding it’s current New Jersey data center to a total of 120,000 square feet. Net Access will nearly triple the New Jersey facility in response to existing tenant and forecasted demand. Notable data center design elements include a split, two stories deployment and high fiber load and roof load capacity. The company is also adding two additional power systems that will enable the facility to deliver more than 20 megawatts of power after it is completed. As a reference, WiredRE estimates the total annual demand (new deployments) for premium colocation in the New York/New Jersey metro market at approximately 20 MW. The project is slated for completion sometime during the second quarter of 2014.
Sizing Up to the Competition
As supply in the New York/New Jersey data center real estate market continues to grow at a feverish pitch, Net Access is betting that enlarging the facility and investing in the latest, state-of-the-art features will allow it to compete and take market share from the numerous competitors in the market.
“We are very excited to be breaking ground on this data center expansion in less than three years since opening Parsippany II,” stated Net Access CEO Blake Ellman. “By increasing the facility size from 50,000 square feet to over 120,000 square feet, we will not only enable current customers at this facility to expand, but also provide plenty of space for new customers in the coming years. With our close proximity to Manhattan, onsite D/R seating, and full suite of cloud and managed services, an increasing number of enterprises are selecting Net Access for their IT infrastructure needs.”
Net Access offers three data center facilities in New Jersey to deliver its managed, virtualization and colocation services. All three data centers feature N+1 and 2N+1 power configurations, high density cabinets, scalable energy billing, private and shared cage customization and onsite facilities and IT support teams.
