365 Data Centers announces the addition of a new 4,000 amp Direct Current (DC) plant at its Tampa, Florida, facility.

The company has upgraded its DC power system with a new Vertiv NetSure 8000 4,000-amp A&B DC plant with expansion capacity of up to 16,000 amps.

The new system allows for expansion without any downtime to the customer, and it offers digital continuity, which enables remote monitoring and seamless adjustments to customer loads.

“The newly installed power system almost doubles the capacity of the former plant, allowing for larger DC power deployments, while ensuring that our clients’ data stays protected and accessible no matter the circumstances, which is our highest priority,” said Sam Zurzolo, vice president of data centre operations at 365 Data Centers.

“This new plant will enable our carrier, content and enterprise customers to continue to grow and expand with 365 Data Centers, easily scaling without interruption.”

365’s network-centric colocation facility, located at 655 North Franklin Street in the heart of downtown Tampa, features redundant power, cooling, connectivity and 24/7/365 security.

With access to 25 different carriers, the data centre allows customers to choose the connectivity and services that best meet their requirements and tap into the Tampa Internet Exchange.

Features include 31,000 total square feet, 1.6MW of available power, DC power A and B options, direct connectivity to 25 carriers, and 365’s fully redundant, interconnected network. Like all 12 of 365's data centres, the Tampa facility is HIPAA, PCI DSS, SSAE 18, SOC 2 and ISAE 3402 compliant.

August saw 365 Data Centers added Crosslake Fibre as a customer and service provider at its Buffalo, New York, network-hub data centre.

The addition of Crosslake’s services provides new and existing 365 customers with connectivity from Buffalo to Toronto and Montreal in Canada, as well as additional network transport options to Chicago, Rochester, Ashburn and New York in the US.
