Colocation and cloud hosting provider InfoRelay Online Systems has opened a new data center in New York City, moving into newly-expanded space in a 365 Main data center at 65 Broadway in Lower Manhattan. The new facility marks InfoRelay’s second data center in downtown New York, bringing the firm’s nationwide presence to 15 locations.
Virginia-based InfoRelay says that the new facility will ensure that its current and future clients have immediate access to expansion space for their IT infrastructure. The building houses a number of global networks, such as Level 3, AboveNet, Verizon and AT&T, providing various connectivity options for colocation clients.
“Demand for data center real estate driven by the insurance, financial and web hosting sectors has contributed to our latest facility opening,” said InfoRelay Marketing Coordinator Jonathan Maxim. “A number of InfoRelay clients sought out data centers with higher availability that still offered competitive pricing. We worked with them to remove any bottlenecks in their expansion efforts.”
365 Main recently announced the expansion of its New York data center, doubling the size of the facility to address increasing demand.
“Serving the needs of customers like InfoRelay drove the growth of our New York location,” said 365 Main CEO Chris Dolan. “This move by InfoRelay to build on our DC relationship by adding New York is an endorsement of our vision to put our customers in close proximity to their clients as well as recognition of our strong services.”
“Our managed services and cloud business thrive in 365 Main’s carrier neutral data centers, so it’s very reassuring to have them available to support our growth,” said Russell Weiss, President at InfoRelay. “Beyond that, we appreciate their exceptional customer service and capable approach, which always makes working with them easy. The company is a true partner in our growth strategy.”
