Sentinel Data Centers recently announced that it will significantly expand its NJ-1 facility in Somerset, New Jersey, adding up to 200,000 gross square feet and 20 megawatts of critical load. The “Phase III” expansion comes as the existing 230,000 sq ft NJ-1 facility nears capacity and demand for Sentinel’s large-user focused offering remains strong. Sentinel has pre-leased capacity within the Phase III expansion and intends to bring the facility addition online in the second half of 2015.

“We are grateful for the continued validation of our offering by the most discerning large users in the region,” said Josh Rabina, co-president of Sentinel, “We will never be all things to all people, but for quality-sensitive users, we believe our NJ-1 facility will continue to set the standard in the region.”

Sentinel’s NJ-1 Phase III design will integrate latest best-practices from across the industry to maximize reliability, scalability, energy efficiency and ease-of-use. Sentinel will continue to utilize modular building blocks to enable customization of power densities and resiliency levels on a granular basis within each customer’s dedicated suite.

“Today’s IT landscape is highly dynamic, and we are committed to continuing to align our model with our users’ evolving needs” said Todd Aaron, Co-President of Sentinel, “Flexibility remains a cornerstone of our offering and is central to insuring our customers’ long-term success. We are thrilled to be bringing additional product to New Jersey that we feel will continue to exceed the market’s highest expectations.”
