Data center provider NYI has just completed work on NYI X-Connect, a facility expansion that will provide more colocation and dedicated server rental to the finance industry. The facility is unique in that it is located on Wall Street, allowing investors and financial analysts to access the latest data as fast as possible.
The firm believes its location will give it an advantage over other server providers. This is probably true, but most people will want to look elsewhere for a dedicated server. A major factor in a server’s price is its location. Wall Street is bound to be one of the most expensive areas in the world to host a server. This is fine for investors, who need their computing services as close as possible, but the average Joe doesn’t need this kind of service.
