Spurred by online video growth, Internap opens new data center in Santa Clara

Content delivery network Internap has opened a new data center in Santa Clara, California that, it says, will help it offer enterprise customers access to its premium colocation and route-optimized network connectivity services. The company said growing customer demand for premium data center infrastructure and high-performance connectivity, particularly from online media firms and companies selling software-as-a-service, were a driver in the decision to build.

The data center utilizes green data center practices to minimize energy consumption and environmental impact.

"This facility highlights Internap's on-going initiatives to build out our company-controlled colocation footprint," said Mike Higgins, senior vice president of data center services at Internap. "The new data center also enables us to create more strategic relationships with current IP customers in the area by delivering flexible and integrated business solutions from our own facility."
