(The Hosting News) – On Friday, Northern Virginia-based InfoRelay Online Systems Inc., announced the expansion of its downtown Manhattan, New York data center presence. The company now has two New York data centers with multiple suites at which it offers server colocation, cloud hosting, network bandwidth, disaster recovery planning, and other managed services. The InfoRelay LGA3 facility, offers IT solutions fit for small and medium business through increased data center availability and better network access, according to an InfoRelay spokesperson. The LGA3 data center is part of the former Western Union Building at 60 Hudson Street in the Manhattan borough of New York City.
The LGA3 data center suites in 60 Hudson Street are interconnected with InfoRelay’s other New York data centers, LGA1 and LGA2 through dark fiber connections, providing clients with access to internet carriers and ISPs in other facilities. The 60 Hudson Street facility currently hosts more than 100 internet and telecom providers internally, making cross-connections between networks highly accessible. Clients can connect directly to the data centers from their offices, as well as access the other InfoRelay data centers in the region through dedicated 100Mbps, GigE, 10GE, and 40GE connections.
The expansion is part of InfoRelay’s effort to better accommodate small and medium businesses, through partial cabinet availability and more competitive bandwidth pricing. InfoRelay president Russell Weiss explains, “Colocation provides many benefits to businesses. Sometimes, unfortunately it’s difficult for small businesses to take the leap into colocation due to cost and complexity. We’ve sought to make these services more accessible by offering partial locking cabinets, including quarter cabinets and have cabinets available so that small businesses can realize the benefits of server colocation in a large data center, without having to commit to a large-scale deployment. By colocating at one of our New York Data Centers, clients can also access other top-tier data centers and networks in the region via dark fiber connectivity.” The new colocation space is in an SSAE16 II certified data center, and utilizes high security measures such as 24/7/365 human monitoring, biometric scanners, and man trap entry-ways.
The LGA3 facility space is available to the public as of September 7, 2013. For more on this story, please contact InfoRelay’s communication department at 703 485 4600.
