Southfield, MI – April 5, 2013 – 123.Net, a Michigan based telecommunications company, today announced that it will be celebrating the opening of its newly remodeled Grand Rapids data center with an exclusive event on Wednesday, April 24 beginning at 3pm at the facility. The event will include tours of the newly remodeled data center, and a reception for guests.
The newly remodeled facility, located at 400 76th Street in Byron Center, Michigan, has approximately 3500 square feet of data center space and more than 150 cabinets. The $500,000 upgrade includes a hot/cold aisle design with redundant power and HVAC systems, security monitoring systems, direct connectivity to 123.Net’s facilities in Southfield, MI, along with additional amenities including office area with available conference space. The project began in June 2012 and will be completed ahead of the April event.
Demand for data center and colocation services is growing across Michigan due to the adoption of managed cloud services, the necessity for off-site redundancy and security, and the expansion of network providers and digital media companies. 123.Net’s four SSAE-16 audited facilities in Michigan offers Michigan companies the opportunity to collocate in world-class data centers without having to go out of the state for redundancy.
“The newly remodeled 123.Net Grand Rapids data center facility allows our business partners to leverage our investment to expand their service offerings and to gain geographical redundancy for their critical infrastructure. Customers can replicate seamlessly from site to site over 123.Net’s fiber network with the benefit of utilizing diverse power grids.” Stated Dave Curran, Channel Manager for 123.Net.
Southfield, MI – February 12, 2013 – 123.Net, a Michigan based telecommunications company, has recently announced plans to open a new state-of-the-art data center facility in Southfield, MI. 123.Net has purchased a building that will become the company’s new headquarters and Michigan’s largest data center with over 100,000 sq. ft of data center space.
The new facility, located at 24700 Northwestern Highway, currently houses several telecommunication carriers and has 3000 sq.ft of move-in ready data center space, and will be the latest addition to 123.Net’s portfolio of world-class telecommunication services including voice, Internet and collocation services.
“As 123.Net continues to grow, and the demand for world-class data center space increases, we have decided to develop a facility that will allow businesses in Michigan and across the country to have access to a premium facility in the Detroit area,” stated Dan Irvin, CEO of 123.Net.
Plans are in place to develop the facility into a carrier-neutral, Tier 3 and Tier 4 data center space, the first of its kind in Michigan. The facility will also be an Internet Exchange, a place where Internet Service Providers (ISPs), telecommunications carriers, content providers, web-hosters and cloud providers meet to exchange IP traffic with one another. 123.Net is also working with engineering firms to utilize the latest energy-efficient technology to reduce energy costs by 60%.
“Businesses are choosing colocation at 123.Net’s facilities over other options to avoid the risk, capital expense, and potential pitfalls of owning and operating their own data center. The carrier-agnostic approach of 123.Net’s four data centers provides access to a marketplace of suppliers,” stated Dave Curran, Channel Sales Manager at 123.Net.
