(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Leading high-performance dedicated server hosting company 100TB, part of UK2 Group, today launched a new state-of-the-art Tier 3 data center in New York City. The data center incorporates redundant power sources, cooling equipment, and multiple 10Gbps uplinks to maximize uptime – in addition the data center is secured with multi-layer authentication to prevent unauthorized access – all of which makes it suitable for hosting mission critical servers and computer systems.
Located in Manhattan, the facility will benefit from fast, robust connections at one of the world’s largest international internet exchanges, the New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX), which has fiber connections across the Atlantic Ocean and out to the rest of the United Sates.
The fully redundant energy-efficient cooling system, complete with 30” raised floors and advanced canopy cold aisle containment, ensures that racks are kept at an optimal temperature with maximum efficiency.
Designed for clients that need to offer maximum performance and to reach a high concentration of users on the East Coast, particularly in the New York metropolitan area, the new data center has achieved a number of certifications, including SSAE 16, HIPAA, PCI compliance, Safe Harbor and CPNI accreditation.
John Morris, COO UK2 Group, said: “The launch of our third owned data center is a significant element within the overall investments we have been making in our hosting services infrastructure. With businesses becoming more and more reliant on 100% uptime and looking to maximize performance, this new data center is key to delivering our mission to offer customers a first-class experience.”
Initially the facility will support the company’s Premium Network services with the intention to roll out a full-service offering in the coming months. There will be a wide range of servers available, including custom configurations.
This is 100TB’s third owned data center location, the company also owns facilities in Salt Lake City in Utah and London in the UK. In addition, 100TB holds capacity at SoftLayer data centers to enable a global reach.
