Norwalk, CT - Cervalis, a premier and trusted provider of technology and IT services, announced today the opening of a 168,000-square-foot high-availability data center in Fairfield County, Conn. The data center is a secure facility offering colocation, managed hosting, business continuity and disaster recovery, and cloud computing services.

“I am very pleased Cervalis has established such a unique, outstanding facility in Connecticut,” said Michael Boccardi, President and CEO of Cervalis. “This unparalleled operations center can serve as a primary production data center, a backup data center or a hybrid solution for firms that rely on active-active computing environments. Many New York City firms have joined our New England-based clients at our other Connecticut facility, and I expect that trend to continue.”

As a company built by IT veterans for the IT organization, Cervalis understands the importance of security, accessibility, scalability and reliability in helping businesses achieve their goals. Conveniently located near I-95, the Merritt Parkway and between Metro North’s East Norwalk and Westport stations, Cervalis’ newest facility features 75,000-square-feet of raised-floor data center space (above the 500 year flood zone) and 30,000-square-feet of dedicated disaster recovery seating with 16 MW of redundant power, uniquely powered by two separate utility companies and 3,500 tons of cooling capacity -- all just 40 miles from New York City. Cervalis’ newest data center ensures business resilience.

“In recent years, many Connecticut businesses have battled not only natural disasters – Snowtober, Hurricane Sandy – but also the significant business interruptions that followed,” Boccardi said. “Cervalis is committed to protecting businesses against these costly interruptions, and we designed our Norwalk facility to allow businesses continuity through access to dedicated work area recovery. During these challenging events, Cervalis maintained 100% uptime and supported thousands of clients in its work area recovery seats and data centers. We expect these unusual weather patterns to continue, and the demand for these offerings remains high.”

Home to many leading financial services companies, Cervalis’ Fairfield County data center offers mission-critical security in a cutting-edge facility. All of Cervalis’ data centers are SSAE 16 Type 2 and PCI compliant, as well as U.S.-EU Safe Harbor certified. In each facility, security is a top priority – and so Cervalis has a comprehensive, multi-layered program in place to protect customer environments. Other clients include first-class companies in the legal, healthcare, insurance, telecommunications, media and high tech industries, all of whom partner with Cervalis to achieve a higher level of business resilience.
