Hosting and network services provider Internap has opened the third phase of its data center at 50 innerbelt in Boston, the company said today. The expansion adds 5,000 square feet of raised floor data center space to house customer equipment.
Internap (INAP) says the expansion will support higher-density customer installations up to 18 kW per rack, which is a trend the company reports seeing across its footprint. The company operates 375,000 square feet of data center space across its network, which includes data centers in eight U.S. markets. The company had 3,500 customers as of June 30.
The Internap site at 50 Inner Belt features a three-foot raised floor. Internap has incorporated numerous energy efficiency features, including air economizers, circuit level power monitoring and custom-built cooling systems that ramp up and down based on temperature changes.
