Informart Data Centers completes a new data center suite in Ashburn
Infomart Data Centers, a national wholesale carrier-neutral data center provide based in Sterling, said Monday that it has completed a new data center suite at its Ashburn facility.
The data center is the first of six 10,000-square-foot suites, each with a power capacity of up to 3 megawatts (MW). When complete, the facility will bring up to 18 MW of capacity to the Northern Virginia market.
Infomart Ashburn has a history dating back to the origin of the commercial internet when it served as the home of AOL's email platform. Infomart said it has invested in a complete refurbishing of the facility’s infrastructure and interior and plans to position it to offer mechanical and electrical resiliency.
“We are excited to announce that we’re open for business in Northern Virginia,” Dan Ephraim, vice president, Infomart said in a statement. “We’ve worked quickly to bring an industry-leading facility to market and consider today the beginning of our commitment to being a leading provider in Northern Virginia.”
The facility will offer chilled water systems designed to operate at maximum efficiency. It also has what is known in the industry as redundant “Meet-Me-Rooms,” and, as a carrier-neutral provider, is connected to a fiber ring providing access to more than 60 data centers throughout the region. Physical security includes berms, vehicle arresting cables, perimeter fencing and a gated entrance.
Infomart Data Centers offers wholesale and colocation facilities in three Tier I markets throughout the U.S.: including San Jose, Calif.; Hillsboro, Ore.; and Ashburn.
