(The Hosting News) – CoreSite, announced today the expansion of its Boston data center located at 70 Innerbelt Road in Somerville, Massachusetts. The requirements for the project include an additional 12,000 square feet of data center space and power to be delivered in the second quarter of 2010.
The additional wholesale data center and cage-to-cabinet colocation space will be capable of cooling high performance computing environments and will feature access to CoreSite’s Any2 Northeast Internet exchange. Any2 Northeast is a distributed exchange point that facilitates interconnection between CoreSite’s Boston, New York, Northern Virginia and Washington, DC data centers.
CoreSite will also further enhance the Boston data center’s security with additional mantraps and biometric scanners, and gated, access-controlled parking with perimeter fencing. CoreSite received a SAS 70 Type II certification at the data center in March 2009.
“The additional wholesale data center and colocation space will meet the growing demands of our existing customer base and prospective New England enterprises,” commented David Dunn, CoreSite’s senior vice president of marketing and business development. “We anticipate having the entire expansion phase completed and ready for occupancy by the end of May 2010.”
