Hurricane Electric (www.he.net), a
Technical Service Provider, announced plans to open a new colocation
facility in Silicon Valley. The new 208,000 square foot facility will
complement three other colocation facilities Hurricane Electric
operates in San Jose, CA, Fremont, CA and New York, NY.
Electric’s new building is located in Fremont, CA, less than two miles
from its existing Fremont Colocation Facility. At 208,000 square feet,
the new facility is more than four times the size of the existing
Fremont facility. To match Hurricane Electric’s colocation standards,
the new facility will be equipped with every amenity a customer could
ask for, including a 24/7 knowledgeable onsite staff, high-tech
security, digital video surveillance, HVAC environmental systems,
conditioned uninterruptible power, and back-up generators. Racks,
cabinets, cages, and private suites will be available for customers. In
addition, the new facility will be able to support high- density
applications such as blade servers.
“We have experienced
tremendous growth over the past few years that has necessitated the
opening of another data center. With its size and proximity to so many
major networks, the new Fremont facility will give us the room to grow
in the long run and become a significant global epicenter of Internet
traffic,” said Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric.
Electric’s new colocation facility is expected to be ready for
customers in four months. Once open, new domestic and international
clients will have the choice to colocate their equipment in the
original San Jose facility, the existing Fremont facility, the New York
facility, or the new Fremont facility.
