IT Solutions provider SHI International Corp. is set to open a new data center in Piscataway by the end of the month, the Somerset-based company said Oct. 10.
The 400,000-square-foot Ridge Integration Facility will house a team of 120 and expand SHI’s support for advanced solutions, including combining components from multiple manufacturers into ready-made rack systems.
The new space increases capacity for SHI, the company said, allowing it to power more than 150 racks at the same time, while also increasing its ability to build and automate integration workflows for increased efficiency and accuracy.
“Customer response to the opening of our first Integration Center in Piscataway was so immediate and positive, it was clear continued expansion would be necessary,” said SHI President and Chief Executive Officer Thai Lee in a statement.
“Just three years later, SHI can easily support additional enterprise-size data center infrastructure projects, not just because of our experience and expertise, but because our increased capacity allows us to scale to the needs of any advanced data center initiatives our customers might have,” Lee added. “This facility is a product of SHI’s continual reinvestment to expand our services to meet customers’ hybrid cloud and datacenter needs.”
According to the company, the new Ridge Integration Facility – along with its existing 300,000-square-foot Integration Center – makes SHI the operator of two of the largest such facilities east of Chicago.
