Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) March 05, 2014
Steel ORCA is announcing the construction of a new digital utility center in Central New Jersey that is strategically located just 40 miles from both Philadelphia and New York City. Phase 1 groundbreak is the first part of the project set to build out over 300,000 square feet of digital white space.
The project will open up several hundred construction, IT, and administrative job opportunities. When complete, the Steel ORCA Digital Utility Center will have 12,000 IT racks, 45 megawatts of grid power, and several megawatts of sustainable off grid power. Steel ORCA will have many fiber partners in our carrier neutral facility, which will serve major markets with less than 1 millisecond of latency between Philadelphia and New York City.
"We are filling a huge void in Eastern Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey markets with a strategically located option for a co-location center with multiple fiber carriers, unparalleled security, and significant power capacity. The strong market demand, amplified by the Hurricane Sandy aftermath, made site selection, resiliency, and security the critical components to this project,” says Steel ORCA CEO, David P. Crocker.
Steel ORCA has its first clients scheduled to move in April 2014.
