ColoCrossing, a provider of data center services including colocation, dedicated servers, managed IT services, and network security, has announced the completion of a major expansion to their existing flagship data center, located at 325 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14202.
The 7,000-square foot data center has been upgraded to include an additional 140 KW of cooling capacity by installing 7 Liebert In-Row Advanced Direct Expansion CRAC units. Each of the 7 CRAC units has its own condenser which would benefit from variable fan speed modulation for improved efficiency, helping to further enhance the facility’s overall efficiency.
In addition, the company has added 80 KVA of UPS backed power through the addition of an APC 80 KVA N+1 Symmetra, providing more uninterruptible power capacity.
“By completing this project, we’re enabling our company to continue its growth both within the Western New York region, as well as nationwide,” said Jon Biloh, President of ColoCrossing. “By taking these steps, we’re adding to the stability and capability of our Downtown Buffalo datacenter operations, which already employs more than 30 people and continues to grow.”
ColoCrossing first began their commitment to Downtown Buffalo when they opened their first Buffalo based data center in 2012, followed by moving its 24 hour Network Operations Center from Williamsville, NY to Buffalo in 2014. In 2015, they opened their flagship data center in the present Delaware Avenue location, and by 2016 their nationwide headquarters were moved to the same building.
ColoCrossing currently employs more than 30 people in Buffalo, NY and plans to add 15 new employees by the end of 2018.
