CoreSite Realty Corporation opened the 280,000 square foot facility on Emerson Lane. Called NY2, it is connected to the company’s NY1 data center at 32 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan, as well as other regional communication hubs.
“We’ve become the data center capital of the country,” said Mayor Gonnelli. “We’ve got the fiber and we’ve got the electric to support these centers.”
Electricity costs in Secaucus are significantly lower than in Manhattan.
As described on their website, “CoreSite connects, protects and ensures the optimal performance and continued operation of mission-critical data and IT infrastructure for enterprises and Internet, private networking, mobility, and cloud service providers.”
CoreSite has one or more buildings in eight locations across the U.S., including Boston, Chicago, Miami, and Silicon Valley. --Art Schwartz
