Telehouse Celebrates Opening of Colocation Center in Chelsea

By Carrie Schmelkin, TMCnet Web Editor

Friends, customers and prospective clients filed into Telehouse’s third colocation facility in Chelsea, N.Y., on Feb. 3, commemorating the opening of Telehouse’s newest data center.

Telehouse, which has been a pioneer in the development of data center services for over 20 years, is a premier colocation provider in the New York area with an “immense global footprint” as well, according to company officials. Telehouse’s new Chelsea facility, its third colocation facility, boasts 60,000 square feet of colocation space on one floor with over 4mW of power.

“The Chelsea facility adheres to Telehouse’s strict, robust global infrastructure standards for redundancy and diversity, including backup power and distribution, cooling, telecommunications, 24/7 Security with on-site Technical Support Staff and access to Client’s authorized personnel,” according to the company.

At the launch party, attendees were provided with Telehouse lanyards and were given the opportunity to socialize and network with other members of the IT industry. The party included a ceremonial ribbon cutting ceremony, a discussion about 2011 Telehouse hopes and information about Telehouse products and services, among other things. Guests were able to tour the data center facility as well.

With the addition of Telehouse New York Chelsea, New York City customers will have telecommunications service available from the following carriers/ISPs, available at low introductory cabling and cross connect rates: Abovenet, AT&T, Level3, Lightower, RC, Telehouse/KDDI, Time Warner Cable, Verizon (News - Alert), Voxel and XO. Other United States TELEHOUSE facilities are located on Broadway in New York City; Staten Island, N.Y., and Los Angeles, Calif.

“With this new facility, Telehouse continues global expansion, while meeting the ever-increasing New York demand for secure, well connected, and cost effective colocation facilities with a choice of IT support services.” Noriyuki Kita, executive vice president of Telehouse America, noted in a statement.

All data systems are protected and supported by the company's N+1 power infrastructure as well as high-level redundancy and security standards, including 24/7 security and technical support personnel, backup power and distribution systems, cooling technology and perimeter mantrap with biometric access, among others.

For Telehouse customers who didn’t get the chance to celebrate the opening of the Chelsea location, they will get a second chance on March 10 when Telehouse holds a planned breakfast seminar at 8:30 AM EST. At the event, two great speakers will speak, and Telehouse will also offer tours of the data center, niche networking opportunities and a gourmet breakfast buffet.
