Quite a bit of news in the datacenter space lately, here's a quick look:
Telehouse America is moving deeper into the Manhattan Datacenter market. Today they announced the acquisition and opening of a 60,000 square foot facility in the Chelsea-Meatpacking District at 85 10th Avenue. It will hold up to 600 cabinets with 4.15 mVA power capacity. Telehouse is a subsidiary of Japanese giant KDDI.
Across the river in New Jersey, Net Access has opened its new 50,000 square foot facility in Parsippany. It may be just outside spitting distance to Manhattan, but on the other hand it's outside spitting distance from Manhattan too. The new Pasippany II facility offers power densities of 20kW per cabinet.
Red Sea Group's Server Farm Realty is making its move on the Chicago colocation marketplace. They've purchased the Northern Trust building at 840 South Canal and are planning to spend $200M to convert it into a data center. That's downtown Chicago, not in the western suburbs. They are taking aim at the space requirements of the trading community at a time when 350 East Cermak's space is starting to get scarce. Data Center Knowledge has more.
And last but definitely hugest, the Switch SuperNAP in Las Vegas is planning to supersize itself. According to plans recently unveiled, what is now 407,000 square feet will become a 2,000,000 square foot campus. They'll start in March on the first in a series of facilities on that campus, each of which will be 200k-500k square feet. That's a heck of an ambitious buildout plan. More again over on Data Center Knowledge.
