Web Hosting and Colocation Provider NYI Opens New Data Center

According to a report by Data Center Knowledge, the web hosting and colocation provider NYI Internet has this Thursday announces the opening of its brand new data center in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The company will be expanding its data center space in Jersey following the 40,000 square foot data center in October 2009.

“I think we spend more on orange paint than any company in New Jersey,” Koblence told Data Center Knowledge. “All the steel in the building is painted orange.”

 

NYI Internet’s flagship data center provides colocation, managed hosting and dedicated servers for finance and media customers. It is currently located at 100 William Street in the heart of Manhattan’s Wall Street.

 

From its very beginning in 1996, the company has outgrown the New York Market. It now offers more than 20 global markets services. Nonetheless, Phillip Koblence, NYI VP of operations, says that the web hosting provider does not plan on changing its name or branding.

This new data center will be offering its services to small- to medium-sized businesses in the New York and New Jersey markets. This data center has connectivity from AboveNet, Lightpath, and Verizon Business. It is situated within 50 fiber miles of Manhattan.

 

The data center facility has been renewed. What used to be a backup data center for payroll processing firm ADP was raised from its previous 12-inch floors to 24 inches. This was made to allow for additional cooling capacity for high-density server installations.
