NEW YORK – TELEHOUSE America, a KDDI Group company and the global leader for data centers, international internet exchanges and managed IT services, today announced implementation of best-in-class layer physical security for their New York data centers with partner support. “We wanted a unified and modern security solution that could accommodate the latest technologies to ensure the highest security, internal team efficiency and auditing/reporting capabilities that protect our client assets,” explained, Telehouse Senior Director of the Corporate Division Milad Abdelmessih.

Telehouse America has been known for their security measures including monitored video surveillance and access control systems 24/7 at each site to ensure customer data remains fully secured and protected. The new system takes the facilities from a legacy system nearing end of life to a best-in-class layered security system that encompasses the Staten Island and Manhattan locations.


The security teams monitor a total of 400 cameras and 400 doors using both the Omnicast™ video surveillance system and the Synergis™ access control system of Security Center. This strengthens security through complete monitoring of all locations including every data center suite, corridors, elevators, and common areas. Essentially every door, access point into the building and the data center is monitored and controlled by the access control system.

With this update, Telehouse now has the ability to monitor the sites via a map-based interface that enables them to quickly find doors and nearby cameras. The platform’s open architecture includes a MAGOS radar perimeter detection system to spot potential threats at the property line, which is essentially a virtual fence around the site.

An advanced intercom system featuring a built-in Sipelia intercom module that enable two-way calling between Security Center operators and intercom devices at doors and shipping docks. This includes live video feed integration for visual identification of visitors and cardholders before granting or denying access.

A completely modernized visitor management process includes the installation of BioConnect fingerprint and facial recognition and Deister key management technologies. Genetec ClearID™ physical identity and access management modules automate visitor requests while keeping detailed audit trails of each visit.

The unified entry, access, and exit system with fully integrated surveillance enables Security Center operators to monitor visitor movements and quickly pull reports to conduct investigations if needed.

With as many as 50 rigorous audits per year, the new system transforms and simplifies the process through integrated reporting.

As a world-class data center provider, Telehouse America prides itself on ensuring best-in-class facilities, technologies, and security. According to Abdelmessih, this latest upgrade with the help of world-class system partners ensures the continuation of that legacy for Telehouse customers and staff:

“Since implementing the Security Center unified platform, securing our site and managing our visitors has become much easier. Having that unified security view ensures our staff can see what’s happening and respond without delay. Even from an operational standpoint, we’re delivering more value and assurance to our customers with detailed auditing and reporting. As we continue to evolve our security operations, I think Genetec will be a very long-term partner for us,” concluded Abdelmessih.

TORONTO – Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral data center, colocation and interconnection solutions, announced today the expansion of its One Century Place facility, a major regional connectivity hub in greater Toronto, bringing online additional colocation capacity to meet the area’s growing networking needs. As more technology and data-centric businesses move or scale in the region, facilities like One Century Place are key to providing customers the flexibility and performance needed to realize their digital ambitions.

The facility was previously home to the iconic Toronto Star printing facility, and Digital Realty is expanding its Canadian colocation capabilities as a powerful lever to help businesses rearchitect towards a decentralized infrastructure to further scale and spur new digital transformation initiatives. The new capacity will help address the needs of today’s enterprise customers that require more distributed data hosting, connectivity and exascale computing in a single campus, along with the flexibility to easily scale capacity and network bandwidth requirements.


“Toronto is a more critical market than ever as businesses recognize the growing importance of the region as one of the next major technology hubs in North America,” said Digital Realty Chief Executive Officer A. William Stein. “Today’s announcement marks a significant milestone in the expansion of PlatformDIGITAL™ as we continue to expand our colocation capabilities in strategic regions around the world. We are enabling our customers to address the challenges of data gravity by deploying their digital infrastructure in close proximity to key cloud deployments, providing the coverage, capacity and connectivity requirements to support their current and future goals.”

The expansion of One Century Place in Vaughn, also known as TOR1, is expected to add 6,000 square feet and 1,500 kilowatts of colocation capacity to a broad cross-section of customers across industries. In addition to providing customers room to grow, the facility also boasts key connections to key partners, networks and service and cloud providers that form the connected communities of digital transformation.

To support customers in TOR1, Digital Realty will leverage IBM’s next-generation Direct Link 2.0 capabilities, providing direct access to the IBM Cloud in Toronto. Direct Link 2.0 enables customers to spend less time designing and deploying network architectures to accelerate the development of new solutions via the hybrid cloud. This includes giving customers broader access to IBM services, including blockchain, AI, data analytics and quantum computing, which are becoming more essential to the new future of work.

“Data rich technologies like AI and IoT are being deployed at a rapid scale, requiring enterprises to locate their infrastructure closer to highly-connected centers of data exchange. Enterprises now need greater access to productized colocation offerings at the heart of where digital business is happening. We see significant growth potential in greater Toronto as digital business accelerates,” added Mr. Stein.

Digital Realty completed the colocation expansion of TOR1 in July 2020. Digital Realty currently operates over 20 megawatts of capacity across two data centers in the Toronto region, with more than 60 megawatts planned at full build-out.

Upland, CA – RackNerd LLC, an infrastructure as a service provider today announced the official launch of its new product offering: Windows VPS. Powered by AMD Ryzen processors and RAID protected NVMe SSD storage, RackNerd’s new NVMe Windows VPS offerings will be deployed out of its Los Angeles DC-02 (Multacom) facility, delivering a premium network optimized to provide the best connectivity to Asia, Oceania, United States, and more. The BGP network is optimized by Noction IRP (Intelligent Routing Platform) in real time to provide the best network paths and latency to the end-user.

RackNerd’s NVMe Windows VPS series will be provisioned exclusively with DDR4 RAM, providing more memory capabilities and bandwidth than ever imagined before.


This launch makes RackNerd the first provider to offer AMD Ryzen NVMe Windows VPS out of Multacom’s enterprise, SOC 2 + HIPAA compliant datacenter facility in Los Angeles, California.

“When building out our Windows VPS platform, we wanted to deliver an experience that is light years ahead. That means we didn’t cut any corners when building out our infrastructure, we rigorously tested and designed our Windows VPS IaaS offering exclusively with AMD Ryzen 3900X processors, featuring DDR4 RAM and enterprise-grade Intel NVMe drives. The performance of each Windows VPS is stunning.” discloses Dustin B. Cisneros, CEO of RackNerd.

In a recent survey sent to beta testers, a bulk of users reported an overall 4-5 times faster speeds with RackNerd’s new Windows VPS platform compared to other Windows VPS hosting providers. This impressive result translates to increased productivity, and the ability for users to run heavier workloads for less, compared to other competing platforms – delivering tremendous value. These NVMe Windows Ryzen VPS are snappy!

“Performance was a heavy emphasis when designing our new Windows VPS platform. When it comes to Windows VPS, we understand that consumers simply want an experience that is rapid, responsive, and highly available. As an illustrative example – in a soft-launch we ran, we’ve even had some users tell us that their Ryzen-powered Windows VPS with us with just 1 core outperforms their Windows VPS with another host that had 4 Intel Xeon Cores! This is thanks to our platform leveraging the unmatched performance of AMD Ryzen and Enterprise Intel NVMe SSD drives.” Cisneros further elaborated.

Both individuals and enterprises looking to deploy NVMe Windows Virtual Private Servers with Full RDP Administrator Access can now benefit from RackNerd’s new product offering. To learn more, please visit: https://www.racknerd.com/windows-vps
