Two companies have partnered to offer a new data center that provides wholesale suites and carrier colocation in the New York metropolitan area.
Data Center NYC Group and Atlantic Metro Communications already have 20,000 sq ft of data center space available in their facility, as well as connectivity services in a meet-me room. Data Center NYC is a turn-key data center developer and Atlantic is a provider of internet solutions.
Atlantic will operate the Data Center NYC data center, including both colocation space and the meet-me room. The partners expect to invest up to $100m into the facility, citing demand for high-frequency trading applications, internet service providers and application service providers.
“We bring the management and operation experience for data center and meet-me-room operations,” Atlantic CEO Stephen Klenert said in a statement. “While Data Center NYC Group brings expert builders, the actual housing, the financial stability, and secure properties to offer a safe data center facility for all of our clients.”
The facility is expandable to a total of 100,000 sq ft and construction of the next 20,000 sq ft is already underway. Up to 10MW of power is currently available. The facility offers power density of up to 250 watts per square foot.
Bandwidth, dark fiber and metro transport from multiple providers are available in the meet-me room. The data center is located about one mile away from the major carrier hotels at 111 8th Ave. and 60 Hudson St. Fiber and copper cross-connects are available to facilities in seven more locations in the region, operated by Telx, Equinix, Peer 1, Savvis, Level 3 and Internap, among others.
