New York City data center expansion — more servers!


New York City Datacenter Expansion - More Servers!Voxel is expanding one of our two main New York datacenters with an additional cage. In less than two weeks, we’ll be bringing our first “MicroPod” online at 111 8th Avenue. This expansion space supports almost 1000 servers and can’t come soon enough – we’re really low on inventory!

We’re using the latest and greatest hardware platforms from both Supermicro and Dell, with the smoking Intel Nehalem processors. This will give our clients the ultimate in performance and flexibility. Mixing and matching VoxCLOUD and VoxSERVER, they can grow from a virtual machine with a single core, all the way to a bare metal dedicated server with 12 cores, DDR3 ECC RAM with 144GB of memory, and next generation solid state disks. After we’re done, we leave the rest to our software. Building out a new space like this takes months of planning, and hundreds of hours of hard work. Our software takes just a few hours for every server to be automatically powered on, stress tested, and put into inventory. To quote Hannibal from the A-Team:  “I love it when a plan comes together!”.

Along with growing our capacity to meet client demand, this new pod of server inventory adds flexibility to our VoxSERVER line.  As always, you’ll find these servers available via our online portal, API’s and other provisioning tools via our Unified Hosting API (hAPI). Our technicians are working around the clock to complete the new inventory, so keep your eyes peeled for the latest VoxSERVER configs in the coming weeks.
