Get to Know Your Faction Cloud Node: New York/New Jersey
If our cloud nodes were our children (maybe a slight exaggeration, but true nonetheless), our New York and New Jersey nodes would be the ones who always dreamed of living in the big city just to be in the center of it all. Located in the financial center of the world, Faction’s NY/NJ nodes work at lightning speed and seamlessly handle millions of workloads at once, without ever missing a beat. (But really, don’t they all?) Faction resides at NYI’s Bridgewater, New Jersey and New York City data centers, as well as Telx’s NYC2 facility – all interconnected with private (and patented), dedicated Layer 2 direct connections.
Telx’s 111 8th Avenue data center is the third largest building in Manhattan and acts as a global connectivity hub – offering customers the opportunity to connect with hundreds of leading providers and businesses within the Telx ecosystem. NYC2 is a premier North American facility, occupied with both domestic and international carriers and physical connection points for the world’s telecommunications networks and Internet backbones. Taking up over 100,000 square feet and numerous floors, NYC2 provides extreme low-latency access to financial exchanges, application providers and media and content providers around the world.
Serving the tri-city area, Faction colocation partner, NYI, builds and manages customized data center solutions when and where you need them most. NYI’s 100 William Street facility is located in the heart of Lower Manhattan, with connectivity to all major exchanges and peering networks. NYI’s Bridgewater facility is just 40 miles outside the Big Apple and sits alongside New Jersey’s famed “Magic Mile,” which means it’s a perfect location for disaster recovery and business continuity solutions. Always available with round-the-clock support, NYI delivers customized data center solutions in one of the nation’s most heavily trafficked data hubs.
