With the ever-increasing amounts of data generated by customers and employees, data centers are the important links in a company’s IT plan.

As businesses continue to staggering volumes of data and rely on them for day-to-day operations, it’s become imperative to select a reliable data center that provides uninterrupted service.

This week at ITEXPO Miami 2013, Open Data Centers, a carrier-neutral data center operator, will demo the company’s recently launched carrier-neutral data center located in Piscataway, N.J.

ITEXPO kicks off Jan. 30 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami.

Open Data Centers will share booth #831 with its sister company, Endstream Communications, a next-generation carrier that provides VoIP and telecommunications products for the wholesale, enterprise and middle markets.

The Piscataway, N.J.-based data center is located 16 miles from the New York metro area and includes approximately 10,000 square feet of usable, raised floor space. The new data center offers enterprises, service providers and carriers a center for colocation services, Points of Presence (PoPs) and interconnections.

Today’s data center managers are increasingly concerned with very real and sometimes limiting factors, such as floor space, power and cooling, data center life-cycle management, and staffing.

Company officials said Open Data Centers “facilitates cost-effective cross-connects that enable customers to maximize their Return On Investment (ROI) by interconnecting with the partners and networks that provide flexibility, efficiency and direct access to a marketplace of potential business opportunities,” according to a statement.

The facility provides 24/7 staff with full redundancy, consisting of dual UPS systems, dual generators and N+1 HVAC. Open Data Centers also offers capabilities including A/B power delivery to its floor, diverse carrier points of entry, a full security system, fully diverse carriers, up to 120 watts per square foot, and a 24/7 onsite Network Operations Center (NOC.)

ITEXPO Miami 2013 is expected to attract over 9,000 attendees from small, mid-size and enterprise organizations. The majority of ITEXPO attendees are C-level executives from a variety of industry sectors, including service providers, carriers, enterprises, government agencies, resellers, manufacturers and developers.
