Telx’s NJR3 Data Centre Opens Today!

Located in Clifton, NJ, Telx’s new 215,000 square foot data centre – dubbed NJR3 – is having its grand opening today.

Under construction since 2011 and built at a cost of $200 million, the three story LEED designed NJR3 features 100,000 square feet of usable “white space” for customer equipment, 24,000 kW of power, diversely fed from the grid, 16,200 kW of UPS and 27,000 kW from generators.

The Clifton location – which is Telx’s 19th data centre – is ideal for connectivity into financial markets, being on a direct path between, and equidistant to, NYSE Euronext’s Mahwah, NJ and Nasdaq OMX’s Carteret, NJ facilities, and with fibre connectivity into data centres operated by Equinix and Savvis.

According to data centre consultant Eric Thelen, managing director at DJS Group, NJR3 is “a perfect solution for combining arbitrage trading strategies and production data centres at significantly less cost than competing data centres in the area.” He characterises NJR3 as “a benchmark for how other facilities will be built moving forward.”

Says Telx’s head of financial services Shawn Kaplan, NJR3’s white space will be brought into operation in six phases, according to customer demand. Kaplan says that the first phase is ready for equipment installation now, and that contracts have been signed with early customers.

Also, adds Kaplan, the location of the building – around 12 miles inland from Manhattan and outside the 500 year flood plain – makes it attractive to firms that value continuity in the wake of events like Hurricane Sandy.
