Customers in Sentinel’s Somerset data center gain access to a diverse, high-capacity, resilient network
New York, NY – November 16, 2011 — Sidera Networks, the premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, announces today it has expanded its network into Sentinel Data Centers’ NJ-1 data center. As a result of this expansion, Sentinel’s customers will now have access to Sidera’s Xtreme Ultra-low Latency Network.
Sidera’s high capacity, high availability Xtreme Ultra-low Latency Network offers the lowest latency paths between the New York metropolitan area financial exchanges and other key locations to deliver diverse and resilient connectivity. Unlike other commercial networks, Xtreme is able to keep traffic exclusively in New Jersey or extend into New York, based on customers’ specific routing requirements.
“Sidera Networks is excited to be able to serve the growing roster of Fortune 500 customers within the Sentinel NJ-1 facility,” remarks Mike Sicoli, CEO of Sidera Networks. “We appreciate that Sentinel’s customers are highly quality-sensitive with respect to their data center environment and feel that the robust, scalable and ultra low latency nature of our Xtreme network is a perfect fit in connecting these users to key exchanges and interconnection points throughout the NY/NJ metro area.”
Earlier this year, Sentinel completed the first phase of the construction and commissioning of its 330,000 square foot, multi-tenant NJ-1 facility. The facility is designed to meet the most stringent enterprise standards, and is LEED Gold pre-certified with best-in-region energy efficiency.
“It’s a powerful combination – giving customers the ability to deploy a mission critical data center inside NJ-1 with direct connectivity to Sidera’s high quality network,” comments Nelson Frye, Director of Business Development for Sentinel Data Centers. “We are thrilled Sidera has chosen to build into NJ-1 and look forward to connecting our enterprise user base with Sidera’s flexible and highly resilient network platform.”
