Pilot Expands into ColocationGuard’s Brooklyn Data Center

BROOKLYN, NY — ColoGuard Enterprise Solutions, LLC one of New York’s leading colocation providers and operator of Brooklyn’s only data center, recently announced that Pilot, a leading fully featured network and internet service provider, has launched a new Point of Presence (PoP) at the company’s flagship data center: CGNY1.

The expansion into ColocationGuard’s Brooklyn data center marks Pilot’s 13th PoP in the New York Metro Area, a significant part of the self-healing, national backbone the company has built. The deployment offers more businesses access to Pilot’s affordable and reliable transit and network services, all with no monthly contracts.

“Partnering with ColocationGuard was the natural decision when evaluating where to establish Pilot’s network in Brooklyn for the first time as they echo our commitments to excellent customer service and network availability,” said Joe Fasone, Pilot CEO.

ColocationGuard’s carrier-neutral data center contains more than 50,000 square feet of available space and possesses the features that today’s enterprise customers have come to expect, including a high-density server environment with a fully redundant power architecture. The SSAE16 Certified facility is outfitted with a multi-stage security system, including integrated CCTV, biometrics, and a 24/7/365 on-site monitoring staff. All power equipment is built with N+2 redundancy in case of component failure and the building draws power from two independent power grids, backed by three diesel generators with 12,000 gallons (1 full week) of reserve fuel.
