Looking for a Data Center with Renewable Energy in Silicon Valley?

Renewable energy has emerged as a top demand for businesses seeking data center providers, especially for those located in or around Silicon Valley.

Just recently, Infomart Data Centers announced that its Silicon Valley facility is now purchasing 100 percent renewable power for all of its electricity consumption.

Infomart is one of many companies that have made public commitments to procure 100 percent renewable power by a certain time, and a list of these influential organizations can be found at RE100.

New Private Data Center Suite Comes to Infomart Dallas

For performance-driven companies requiring connectivity for their mission-critical, latency-sensitive applications, location matters. Network-rich carrier hotels, providing physical connection points where Internet carriers meet and transfer data, facilitate bringing data in greater proximity to end-users, thus lowering latency and improving performance. This is why co-locating inside a carrier hotel rather than a nearby facility is critical to meeting the requirements for latency-sensitive enterprise apps.

Recently, Infomart Data Centers announced the commissioning of a new, private colocation suite within its Infomart Dallas facility. The facility is designed to maximize efficiency while also providing access to carriers as well as an Internet exchange that’s already built into Infomart’s carrier-neutral Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR). Infomart, the owner and operator of the building, offers customers $0 monthly cross-connect fees within the BMMR to enable further interconnection within the data center hub.

Expanding Your Data Center?

Expanding a data center can be a stressful undertaking, especially when it comes to complicated merger and acquisition activities. It pays to have access to a team of experts to oversee the project every step of the way.

One company offering this service is Competitive Telecoms Group (CTG), which is one of the leading consulting and recruiting companies in the telecommunications and data center space. CTG now has nearly 100 global carrier and data center clients, and recently expanded its consulting group with the appointment of industry veteran Larry Fisher to the role of Vice President, Consulting Services.

Northern France is Becoming a Hotspot for European Data Center Development

France is quietly becoming a leading hotspot for data center development in Europe, with experts predicting that the French data center market will grow approximately 20 percent by 2020, and the northern region of the country leading the way.

With its Tier 3-plus architecture, the new data center, Etix Lille #1, will meet the highest industry standards. This is consistent with all of Etix Everywhere’s global facilities.
