Net Access announced in late April that it had completed a major expansion of its New Jersey data center, adding more space and power capacity.
The expansion of the Parsippany, New Jersey facility will provide the company with an additional 70,000 square feet of available space, as well as 7.5 MW of UPS power and capacity for 1,500 more cabinets. With the new space, the New Jersey data center now has a total footprint of 120,000 square feet.
The newly expanded site offers redundant modular electrical infrastructure capable of offering dual power systems for dual power feeds to each individual server rack. The facility has decided to forego reliance on the city's water supply and instead utilize captured hot air return in chimney-based systems for higher efficiency cooling. The company is now able to provide up to 20 kW per cabinet for some high density needs. The facility is located next to a central New Jersey power and light substation and provides fiber links to other Net Access sites in the area, including multiple metro New York data centers. Also it is approximately 27 miles west of New York City.
The site has also been verified to meet a variety of regulatory standards, including PCI DSS 3.0, SOC1, SSAE16 and HIPAA compliance requirements. The New Jersey data center also guarantees 100 percent uptime SLA and provides proactive system monitoring and 24/7 on-site support.
More Capacity Needed In A Growing Market
Net Access decided to add more space to the Parsippany facility after receiving numerous requests from clients for increased colocation and managed hosting services. With such close proximity to Manhattan and a New York data center operated by the company, the New Jersey site seemed like the ideal location to add capacity.
"The New York metro data center market continues to experience healthy demand for colocation services, with an increasing number of companies looking for more robust service alternatives outside of Manhattan," said Philbert Shih, Founder and Managing Director of Structure Research. "Quality inventory coming online in New Jersey is positioned to capture that demand from a number of enterprise verticals that will be looking not just for capacity but scalable capacity with the requisite power availability and density."
The New Jersey data center is expected to be open for customers in early May.
