Not long ago, iM Critical, a data center and IT services company shaping the future of IT infrastructure, unveiled their Pittsburgh data center campus, which offers modular, scalable, uber-sustainable and connected space and power. This is part of their overall goal of bringing the new, next-gen standard of data centers to the world, benefitting not only their customers and the industry, but the world at large as well. Now, iM is building on that promise — and its national footprint — with the announcement of its newest location: the iM Critical Miami Data Center.
In a market plagued by space and power constraints, this facility aims to free tenants from existing roadblocks and allow digital transformations to progress and scale easily — with a host of added benefits to boot.
“Our Pittsburgh announcement was a giant step towards showcasing our innovation in the realm of IT infrastructure to respond to demand for high-performance colocation data centers with embedded IT service offerings,” states Lenny Chesal, iM’s Chief Evangelist. “Our Miami location follows suit and will serve to bring this robust building back to life and generate new opportunities to this historic Little River community. We will be working closely with the South Florida tech scene to grow the expanding ecosystem of startups, fast-growth companies, and dynamic enterprises looking for transformative solutions. I am thrilled to be back in Miami where I started in the data center business in 2000!”
This 100,000-square-foot building, which is purpose-built for mission critical operations, today offers 60,000 square feet for colocation and 5MW of power. It’s located in the heart of Miami and is placed both above the 100+-year floodplain and outside of hurricane evacuation zones to keep mission-critical equipment out of harm’s way. Plus, it offers heavy floor load capacity and 13’8’’ clear ceiling heights, a range of power densities, diverse fiber entrances with direct, carrier-neutral interconnection to dozens of peers, a direct public cloud on-ramp and more.
Customers can leverage scalable, ultra-powerful retail and wholesale colocation options backed by a 24/7 onsite Network Operations Center, disaster recovery suites, and full-stack IT managed services. These services include managed servers, storage, and networking with private and hybrid cloud aaS, alongside cybersecurity support offerings like monitoring, intrusion detection and rapid response.
Here’s a key element that keeps this company and its tenants ahead of the technological game: The Miami site’s power (which is fed from three utility substations) and expandable power infrastructure is augmented by on-site renewable energy sources. This underscores iM’s core commitment to being environmentally conscious while meeting all of today’s most pressing IT mandates.
“Our Miami location has the potential to remove many barriers for organizations within this metro, while allowing for unimpeded growth of data center operations — augmented by our intense focus on sustainability initiatives,” states Michael Roark, CEO of iM Critical. “These transformative digital offerings are supported by our high-touch service and our team’s depth of experience designing, engineering, building, owning and operating data centers. We’re thrilled to be bringing this game-changing location to market.”
