Infrastructure Investments Position Data Center as the Preeminent Choice For Innovative IT Operations
SILICON VALLEY, Calif. – June 1, 2016 – Infomart Data Centers, a national wholesale data center provider, today announces significant infrastructure upgrades to its Silicon Valley facility. The upgrades are driven in part by the data center’s latest tenant additions that chose Infomart for their high-density computing and connectivity requirements. Key data center investments that will be completed in Q3 of 2016 include electrical upgrades to offer 2N redundancy for the existing critical power, an additional Meet-Me Room (MMR) for increased network redundancy and fortified connectivity options, and several new office suites to house over two dozen tenant IT operations staff. In addition, the company has begun development of an existing 50,000 sq. ft. building to bring 6MW of new capacity to the supply-constrained Silicon Valley market.
“Infomart data centers are built on the basis of better design and sustainability,” says John Sheputis, President of Infomart Data Centers. “Our investment in our Silicon Valley facility demonstrates our flexibility in helping some of today’s most innovative global cloud and consumer brands realize their business objectives.”
The facility has maintained 100% uptime since its inception, but to further enhance electrical reliability and increase power efficiencies, Infomart is installing new Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) units and backup generators, as well as state-of-the-art switchgear. New power distribution equipment and upgraded batteries across all data center systems also provide an added measure of reliability and redundancy, enabling the facility to exceed Tier III design requirements for concurrent maintainability and fault tolerance, and maintain one of the lowest Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) ratings in the industry.
The company continues this commitment to reliability with the addition of a second carrier-neutral MMR within the facility. Both of the facility’s Meet-Me Rooms are designed to leverage diverse pathways into the space from both its North and South carrier vaults that further increases tenant redundancy while enabling more interconnection.
Infomart combines its high-density capabilities with the lowest power prices in the region. The Silicon Valley facility is the only wholesale data center in California to provide Direct Access (DA) power pricing and metered power solutions at approximately $.085/kWh — about 30% less than the local utility.
Infomart’s commitment to energy efficiency and sustainability transcends to its data center design. In addition to being the first California wholesale data center to earn LEED Gold Certification, Infomart Silicon Valley recently converted to using non-potable, or “gray water,” for 100 percent of the mechanical infrastructure and irrigation surrounding the facility, furthering its commitment to environmental responsibility.
To support the growing demand in the Silicon Valley facility, Infomart has commenced development of a 6 MW data center expansion, increasing the facility’s total capacity by 65% to 16 MW. Infomart will also be adding 10,000 square feet of available, private office space to the data center, positioning the facility as a premier location for IT operations in Silicon Valley.
