US data center provider Infomart Data Centers, a wholesale carrier-neutral data center provider, has completed a new data center suite at its Ashburn facility. The new data center suite is the first of six 10,000-square-foot suites, each with flexible power capacity of up to 3 MW.

Infomart Ashburn meets FISMA, NIST, DIACAP, NISPOM and ICD 705 government compliance mandates, providing for the “flexibility and security” to service the diverse needs of cloud and IT service companies, international and domestic enterprises, federal agencies and systems integrators. When complete, this data center will bring up to 18 MW of premium capacity to the Northern Virginia market.

“We are excited to announce that we’re open for business in Northern Virginia,” said Dan Ephraim, Vice President, Infomart. “We’ve worked quickly to bring an industry-leading facility to market and consider today the beginning of our commitment to be a leading provider in Northern Virginia.”

Connectivity, Data Center Security

Infomart Ashburn provides 2N+1 IT critical power redundancy, allowing for concurrent maintenance without interruption. The facility features chilled water systems designed to operate at maximum efficiency within the regional climate, hot aisle containment, and ceiling and cold wall plenum. Additionally, through a Building Management System (BMS), Infomart will deliver real-time PUE metrics as well as mechanical and electrical infrastructure information to provide customers with maximum control and performance transparency.

The Ashburn data center has redundant Meet-Me-Rooms (MMRs) and, as a carrier-neutral provider, is connected to a fiber ring providing access to more than 60 data centers throughout the region. Physical security features include berms, vehicle arresting cables, perimeter fencing, and a gated entrance. Infomart Ashburn also expects to achieve multiple certifications, including SSAE 16 Type I, SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II, PCI DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, ISO 27001, and the Uptime Institute’s Management & Operations.
