Sentinel Data Centers Earns Five New Compliance Standards
NJ-1 and NC-1 facilities exceed stringent federal, health care, and PCI security requirements.
Sentinel Data Centers has announced that its wholesale colocation facilities in Somerset, NJ and Durham, NC achieved compliance with HIPPA, FISMA (High), FedRAMP, ISO 27001, and PCI DSS standards.
“Our roster of sophisticated large enterprise tenants has been under increasing regulatory pressure,” says Josh Rabina, co-founder at Sentinel Data Centers. “We have invested heavily in our critical infrastructure, operating teams and management practices in order to be one of very few wholesale colocation providers that can keep ahead of the stringent compliance requirements that enterprise users will increasingly demand.”
Sentinel’s enterprise colocation facilities and services at its New Jersey and North Carolina data centers were tested by leading third party assessment organizations who worked with Sentinel’s operations team to audit both facilities in late 2015.
“Through rigorous assessment and audit processes, we have implemented comprehensive practices in order to achieve these high compliance standards,” says Paul Hines, Sr. VP of Operations at Sentinel Data Centers. “Very few wholesale colocation providers have attained such a diverse portfolio of compliance regulations and standards.”
Purpose-built in 2011, Sentinel NJ-1 is a multi-phase development in Somerset, NJ, ultimately comprising 430,000 sq ft on 22.5 acres. Sentinel NC-1, also a multi-phase development, is 420,000 sq ft on 29 acres in the heart of the Research Triangle Park region of Raleigh-Durham, NC. Benefiting from the newly enacted tax benefits and all-in power rates below $0.042 per kWh, Sentinel NC-1 offers among the lowest all-in total costs of occupancy in the country. Both NJ-1 and NC-1 benefit from dedicated on-site, dual-fed transmission voltage substations and a diverse roster of network carriers.
