Oracle solutions specialist Core Services Corp. has opened a new 50,000 square foot data center in Somerset, New Jersey, the company said Monday. The facility was previously a disaster recovery center for "a major Wall Street bank" and has a redundant dual path (2N) power infrastructure.
The new facility is the latest in a growing cluster of data centers in Middlesex and Somerset counties in New Jersey, where companies like Digital Realty Trust (DLR), DuPont Fabros Technology (DFT), Morgan Stanley and New York Internet all have active development projects.
""With perpetually growing databases, the demand for world class data centers continues to rise," said Jim Bistis, Core Services' President and CEO. "The Somerset Data Center will facilitate Core Services' ability to design, build, and maintain highly advanced Oracle ERP environments. This will allow Core Services to provide its clients with extraordinary speed, security, and reliable performance at all times."
"Locating a data center in Somerset also provides us with ready access to a talented pool of highly educated IT professionals and recent graduates from area universities, including Princeton, Columbia, Penn, and Rutgers," Bistis added. The SDC will provide Core Services with decades of unencumbered growth and scalability at a controllable and predictable cost."
Operations and administrative teams will begin the transition to the new building immediately, Core Services said, followed by a sequenced migration of hosted clients.
