Data centers are the important links in a company’s IT plan these days. As a company generates large volumes of data and relies on them for its day-to-day operations, it becomes imperative to select a reliable data center that provides uninterrupted service.

Wolfe has selected Open Data Centers’ (ODC) Piscataway, NJ facility to be its first POP in the Northeast, according to ODC.

Wolfe offers its services to various ODC customers.

Wolfe is looking to make use of Piscataway as an interconnection point for the company’s transport network. This network can be seen mainly in the northwest.

ODC has already started the installation of low-latency, high-speed, transport facilities across the country.

Located 16 miles south of New York City, the company’s Piscataway Data Center offers a perfect location for carrier POPs. It also provides a low-latency alternative for the colocation of financial services applications.

The data center provides facilities such as numerous power grids, access to various fiber providers, and diverse communications. It also offers N+1 redundancy at every level of the infrastructure.

According to the company, this data center offers affordable low-cost, carrier neutral facility in the New York area.

The facility provides 24/7 staff with full redundancy, consisting of dual UPS systems, dual generators and N+1 HVAC.

“Several ODC customers have already begun leveraging Wolfe’s strong presence," said Erik Levitt, CEO at Open Data Centers. "The partnership between ODC, Wolfe and other data center customers exemplifies the true benefits of carrier-neutral colocation, and we are proud to facilitate the relationships and interconnections between our carrier partners.”

The company announced recently that its customers did not incur any outages during Hurricane Sandy, as power was restored rapidly to their facility when hit by the storm.

The company’s data center facility ran on a generator all through the event and did not face any interruptions in services – even while various homes and companies were left without power in New York and New Jersey.
