Internap has completed the second phase of its Secaucus, New Jersey, data center, doubling current space and power capacity. The data center’s first phase launched only in January of this year.
The facility is key to Internap’s ambitions in the New York market, where the company says it offers higher power densities than competing facilities. Phase 2 adds another 13,000 square feet and 1.4 megawatts, equal-sized Phase 1 nearing capacity.
Internap said some of its customers drew 15kW per rack. The average power draw in Secaucus (not provisioned or expected draw) is already upwards of 150 watts per square foot. “Based on the circuits in the installation queue, it will only go higher,” Michael Frank, vice president of data center services at Internap, said.
Average draw per square foot across all of the company’s facilities is up 25 percent across all of its facilities. Some markets, such as Silicon Valley, are experiencing a 40 percent year-over-year jump.
The Secaucus data center supports a suite of services that spans colocation, managed hosting and cloud computing.
