A world-class infrastructure for connectivity

Why NYC?
As the world’s largest financial services hub and America’s largest city, New York (NYC) is a popular location for data centre space. NYC has the largest internet exchange and peering points, providing a world-class infrastructure for connectivity.

Manhattan is home to Wall Street, the NASDAQ stock exchange and global wealth management organisations, so has a high concentration of businesses requiring data centre services. Financial, healthcare, media, technology and telecommunications industries dominate the market – making NYC the second largest city economy in the world.

NYC is a city that has invested heavily in the technology sector and has become a strategic location for robust connectivity on the East Coast and across the USA.
