Old Data Centers Never Die

From ZDNet:

>>>Given the nature of JetBlue’s operations there, this datacenter facility had to be fully redundant on all levels, so there had been a considerable investment in the infrastructure of the facility to allow for 24/7 operations with high availability. But what do you do with this kind of facility when you no longer need it (which is not the same question as deciding if the facility has reached its end of life).

Enter Webair, a NY -based hosting provider that was looking to expand their operations. Today, less than 16 months after JetBlue made the decision to move out, Webair announced that they have opened up the facility as their new flagship datacenter  and executive headquarters, basing their Network Operations Center in the new (to them) facility which they have dubbed “NY1″.
