    New York’s rise as a tech hub comes as industries that have long dominated the city’s economic landscape are transformed by technology. Technology plays a critical role in the operations of financial sector businesses, making the New York region a key market for data center space. Here’s why New York is a great option when it comes to the location of your IT infrastructure:

    Data Center Location

    Often, the starting point for many businesses when researching data center services is determining a strategic location that fits the business’s overall needs. But the key is to select a data center facility that is both convenient and supplemental to daily operations. The location of a data center can directly influence a variety of other key considerations in the colocation process such as latency for completion of critical transactions, interconnectivity options and access to sufficient power

    Today’s data centers are transforming to meet new needs in a more efficient way as technology develops and evolves. In addition to space and power, the physical location needs to offer a highly connected infrastructure, with access to strong connectivity hubs so that they can deliver and receive data between networks, businesses, internet exchanges and end-users.
