Fremont, California - November 5, 2009 - Hurricane Electric, the world's largest IPv6-native Internet backbone and leading colocation provider, today announced the third build out of its 208,000 square-foot Fremont2 data center. This expansion project secured a substantial incentive from Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E).
The newly added 24,000 square-foot space (formerly an Apple manufacturing facility) has a power capacity of three megawatts and employs some of the most efficient equipment and techniques available, including:
"Our energy efficient infrastructure reduces our carbon footprint," said Benny Ng, Hurricane Electric's Director of Infrastructure. "But it also reduces our energy bills, making our services more cost-competitive."
The facility is outfitted with popular colocation amenities, including 24/7 on-site knowledgeable staff, sophisticated up-flow HVAC systems, and uninterruptible power sources with back-up generators. The facility also contains a state-of-the-art digital-video surveillance system that monitors every entrance, exit, hallway and rack in the facility.
At 8:30 AM today, Hurricane Electric will hold a grand opening event to celebrate the new data center. Mark Bramfitt of PG&E will discuss the incentive that Hurricane Electric secured.
