Announcing DCANet's New Wilmington Facility

July 1, 2002

DCANet proudly annouces the opening of its downtown Wilmington Data Center. Located at 1016 Delaware Avenue just off I-95, DCANet's Wilmington colocation facility is the premier space for hosting, managing and deploying mission critical Internet and electronic information services. DCANet also maintains another colocation center in the Old City section of Philadelphia. Both colocation centers are within walking distance to the business districts of both cities.

At 1016 Delaware Avenue, our flagship facility, colocated equipment benefits from state-of-the-art infrastructure, security, protection and bandwidth. Our facility has been specifically designed to accommodate high volume mission critical hardware. The electrical system in the building is highly scalable and supported by online UPS systems with an on-site, automatic diesel generator. The air conditioning is fully redundant and is also backed up by the generator system - a key element when planning for any power outage. The main colocation center is located in a subterranean space, adding to the security and protection of your equipment - and your business.

Depending on the service level you choose, 24-hour access is available to your colocated equipment. Options for space in which to store your equipment range from a single rack unit (1U) to dedicated, locking cabinets and dedicated, locking cages. Cage space is leased on a per square feet basis. 

DCANet can provide the design and implementation support for your colocation equipment. With partnerships with leading vendors like Cisco, Dell, HP, BSDI, Intel, Checkpoint and Websense, DCANet can design, build, and provide security for your colocation. Once your colocation is on-line, DCANet's award winning technical team can
provide ongoing support and managed services. 

For priority consideration in acquiring square footage in the colocation center, please contact DCANet. Choose DCANet as your colocation partner! Call 888-4DCANet or email
