Net Access Opens Colocation Data Center in New Jersey
Officials with Net Access Corporation said the new Parsippany II facility can accommodate power densities of up to 20 kilowatts per data cabinet compared to the industry standard 4kW to 6kW available at most other data centers.
Company officials said that the facility also offers customers a metered power billing model, which charges customers only for the power that they actually consume, rather than a flat price for the full capacity of a circuit.
"Our new data center uses cutting edge cooling technologies to do away with inefficient hot air/cold air aisles. This is part of what helps us offer one of the highest power density capability available in the region," said Alex Rubenstein, CTO and co-founder of Net Access Corporation, in a statement.
Rubenstein said that it also provides a quieter, more comfortable environment for the company’s customers while also being environmentally friendly.
“We’re pleased to be able to provide a more sustainable foundation for customers to build their IT infrastructure on. This enables customers to adopt the latest IT technologies now and into the future which aligns with our mantra taking care of the customer for life," he said. According to company officials, Net Access utilized the most up-to-date, environmentally friendly building materials and energy efficient technologies to help power the facility.
"This new data center combines the best of today’s technology in one highly advanced space. Mitigating risk is what all data centers are designed for, and this space does it better than any other," said Blake Ellman, CEO of Net Access.
Ellman said that with multi-level power redundancy and state-of-the-art security systems, the customers can rest assured that their data is safe and that the risk of outage is significantly reduced. The new data center is in a single-floor, single tenant building. It offers two (N+1) power systems, each of which are fully isolated from the other and housed in separate power rooms on opposite sides of the building. Dark fiber connectivity is available to major carrier hotels.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.[Read More]
Server Technology had the recent opportunity, along with other partner companies, to participate in discussions across the globe with data center IT and facility managers as part of a road show seminar: Data Center Energy and Operational Efficiency.[Read More]
The demand for more power in the computer cabinet has led many data centers to upgrade to three phase power distribution. Proper three phase power distribution has traditionally meant dividing up power up into multiple branches within the rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit). In this paper we will explore the advantages of a new, less common approach to PDU design by means of alternating each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of a per branch basis.[Read More]
Increasing powering and cooling demands within the data center have been the topics of choice for Data Center (DC) and Facility Managers for several years now. Increased power demands are a result of the need for more compute power and higher density devices have resulted. These high density installations include stacks and stacks of servers and the trend of implementing blade servers within these server "farms." Cooling problems are a direct result of the increased power demands based on the simple fact that more power increases the demand for cooling.[Read More]
