Web hosting and domain name registrar Host Department has announced it is expanding to a new data center in New Jersey in effort to provide greater reliability and access times.
“The New Jersey facility will help improve the overall access, backup and load time by 97 percent,” Host Department operational and technical manager Ivan Seidenberg said in a statement. “In addition to that, all our future growth is going to be at our New Jersey facility.”
According to Host Department, its third and newest data center is essential for expansion because its facilities at Hurricane Electric and Terremark Worldwide were reaching their limits.
Located near its head office in Union City, New Jersey, the location will enable engineers to be quickly dispatched to handle hardware issues.
The New Jersey facility will house the company’s new range of blade servers and storage area network fabric.
The New Jersey facility will also lighten the load of the other data centers. In conjunction with the technical team’s “Load Lightening” program, all mail servers located in the Hurricane Electric facility will be moved to New Jersey, where there is little risk of cross connection between the architecture. Other servers will not be moved for cross connection concerns.
