High-performance-computing-center

A major benefit available to on-site and virtual tenants of ITE is the on-site co-location data center. This flexible, 1,500-square-foot facility houses a scalable rack-based co-location center suitable for early stage companies to perform research and development, as well as achieve early traction. The data center provides power, cooling, security and Internet access, thus alleviating the capital and operating costs associated with housing and running servers. Clients gain peace of mind knowing their servers are appropriately housed as they concentrate on delivering the best product or service to customers.

Co-location Service

ITE provides 19” rack-based housing to co-location tenants, and other arrangements can be negotiated. Battery backup provides continuous, smooth power through brown outs and a 500kW diesel generator provides continuous service in the event an extended issue with the mains. Cooling is provided by a fault-tolerant chiller plant with redundant pumps and backup power. Rack-level locks with motion-sensitive cameras and multi-level swipe card access protect your servers. Internet access is available from a number of carriers, so you can customize your bandwidth and redundancy needs.

Pricing is available per U or per rack. The ITE data center has capacity for 756 U and 18 racks.

Qualifications

Access to the ITE data center co-location service is limited to small, early stage companies of fewer than 50 employees and less than 7 years of operation. The goal of the ITE data center is to relieve early stage companies of the infrastructure burden associated with housing servers as they build their product. Clients are expected to develop their products and services, gain traction and move into commercial data center space in 12-36 months. Clients may be on-site or located elsewhere.

On-site Tenants

Preferred pricing, maximum amenities and rapid access to your servers are the major benefit of the data center to on-site tenants. On-site tenants gain full access to the amenities offered at ITE.

Virtual Tenants

As an economic development operation, virtual tenants of the ITE data center still enjoy excellent pricing and access to select amenities of the ITE.
