Rackspace Data Centers

New York Metro Data Center (NYC1)

The smaller of our two Somerset, New Jersey data centers, NYC1 provides N+N power and cooling redundancy for its 11,000-square-foot facility. It is carrier-neutral, with 16 carriers providing fiber-based connectivity. Our specially trained, highly experienced system and network engineers manage the facility around the clock. To protect the facility from physical threats, we rely on measures such as biometric scanners, video surveillance, alarm systems, key card access and laser-based smoke detection.
