Internap has successfully moved its New York data center out of the Google-owned building at 111 8th Avenue in Manhattan and into its brand new Secaucus, New Jersey, facility.
Google, which uses the building for office space, has not allowed data center providers there to renew their leases since it bought it four years ago. Internap was one of the casualties. The building is one of the most desirable data center locations in the world because of the huge amount of carrier networks it is connected to. It is one of a handful of the top carrier hotels in Manhattan.
Internap has been working non-stop to move its New York data center customers to New Jersey. One of the customers, Outbrain, moved more than a thousand servers over a rainy Memorial Day weekend this year.
