Internap Plans Another Huge Data Center for New Jersey

Internap Network Services announced plans for a new data center in Secaucus, N.J. to serve the New York metro area.  The company's wo existing New York data centers are nearing capacity over the next twelve months.

Internap said this data center will measure about 100,00 square feet (9,290 m2) and employ the latest power and cooling technologies to deliver power densities of up to 12 kW per cabinet.  The new Secaucus data center will add 55,000 net sellable square feet to the market once fully deployed, which represents a significant expansion of Internap’s company-controlled data center footprint, which includes 320,000 net sellable square feet of fully-deployed capacity as of end of third quarter 2012.

The new facility will be Internap’s twelfth company-controlled facility across eight North American markets will offer colocation and managed, dedicated and cloud hosting services as well as its route-optimized Performance IP and content delivery network services. The first phase of the Secaucus data center is expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2013.

“We did extensive due diligence when researching the site of our new data center and believe the Secaucus location provides an ideal mix of space, power, connectivity options and access to a range of customers and industries,” said Mike Higgins, senior vice president of data center services at Internap. “With our two existing New York metro area data centers nearing capacity in the second half of 2013, the new Secaucus facility underscores our commitment to the New York market and our customers’ increasing demand for our cloud, hosting, colocation and route-optimized IP services.”
