Internap Network Services, a provider of Internet business products and services, has expanded its Boston-area data centres.
The expansion includes approximately 7,000sq ft of net sellable raised floor space and is the second of its three planned expansions in this facility.
The company said that the data centre expansion is planned to be online in the second quarter of 2011.
The new space will have expanded power density capacities of up to 10 kilowatts per rack and will be supported by a power sub-station on the property.
Internap’s integrated offerings leverage its Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO) network optimisation technology, which selects the best path for Internet traffic by analysing network characteristics like latency, packet loss and route stability.
In addition, the Managed Hosting portfolio includes managed servers and managed storage along with data protection service, virtualisation products, managed network products and advanced monitoring with 24/7 live customer support.
The company said that with this service, customers retain control over the software applications and content on their server while Internap controls and manages the server hardware, operating system, space, power and bandwidth to provide the flexibility necessary for customers to deliver mission-critical business applications across the globe.
Internap said that this expansion is its fourth facility announcement in 2010, that would bring in all a total of approximately 36,500sq ft of additional net sellable space to market within a year.
Internap SVP of data centre services Mike Higgins said the company’s colocation platform enables customers to take advantage of higher power density capabilities combined with their premium IP product offering.
"Offering our customers a comprehensive infrastructure offering is vital, and these expansions set the foundation for our continued growth," Higgins said.
