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.
