Packet, an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider delivering bare metal server solutions, has selected Net Access’ new Parsippany II 70,000 square foot data center expansion. Packet’s platform would deliver the experience of the cloud on bare metal servers by offering customers dedicated, physical servers on-demand – with no virtualization – in 10 minutes or less.
Located 30 miles outside of Manhattan, Net Access‘ Parsippany II data center features high-density colocation capabilities, diverse and redundant 2(N+1) power systems, innovative heat chimney cooling, three factor biometric security and a carrier-neutral network infrastructure. The data center facility would offer a 100% uptime SLA, and provides the scalability and resiliency that Packet requires.
“We did extensive due diligence of data center providers in the New York metropolitan area and Net Access came out on top when evaluating each of our criteria,” said Zachary Smith, Packet’s CEO. “The unique, innovative design of their Parsippany II data center, combined with the passion and dedication that their employees display, make them the ideal partner for us – one that’s committed to the best service and experience for the customer.”
Founded in 1995, Net Access operates three enterprise level compliant data centers in New Jersey. The company maintains its own IP network between all its data centers and major carrier hotels.
“Net Access‘ ability to provide true dual power feeds to high density cabinets with a metered billing methodology was a true differentiator for us,” said Adam Rothschild, SVP of Network for Packet. “The built-in redundancy of the infrastructure in their facility also impressed us, from the dual independent power systems, to the variety of on-net carrier options to the diverse cable entrances.”
