Global technology solutions company NJVC is officially unveiling its new 20,000-square-foot data center in Reno today, providing a boost to efforts by the state to shore up its technology industry while diversifying its economy.
The data center will support several information technology-related services, including cloud computing, cyber security, data proliferation and data mobility with security controls. In addition to commercial customers, the company is also one of the largest IT solution providers for the U.S. Department of Defense.
The Reno facility is the first independently managed data center for the Vienna, Va.-based company, said Jody Tedesco, NJVC president. The company also leases space at a highly secure data center in Richmond, Va.
NJVC decided that Reno was the “perfect site” for its new facility after a site-selection process that took more than a year, Tedesco said.
“It lies on the western edge of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s ‘Hazard Safety Zone,’ making it one of the most stable data center environments in the continental United States,” Tedesco said. “Northern Nevada’s connection to the national fiber overlay also ensures very low latencies for data throughput.”
Other reasons cited by Tedesco include lower overhead as well as cost-effective building space, power and cooling. Northern Nevada also has a great talent pool of IT personnel, Tedesco added.
