NEW YORK -- Atlantic Metro Communications (AMC), a managed Internet service provider offering colocation, IP transit, nation-wide transport and New York metro area dark fiber solutions, today announced they have acquired Internet Data Center space at 32 Avenue of the Americas (LGA6), one of New York City’s newest premier carrier hotels. The company has signed a five year lease with an option for an additional five year term for the equivalent of 280 cabinets rated at 150 Watts per square foot, one of the highest power rated facilities in Manhattan.

The expansion into 32 Avenue of the Americas (LGA6), brings Atlantic Metro Communications’ footprint to twelve (12) Points of Presence (PoPs) and five (5) fully interconnected Internet Data Center facilities nationwide, including two (2) in New York (LGA1 and LGA6), New Jersey (NJ2), Los Angeles (LAX0) and Chicago (ORD0). Atlantic Metro Communications differentiates its service by offering customers its industry leading ‘White Glove Service’ with each installation. At no additional charge, ‘White Glove Service’ provides customers with fully managed installation support from un-box, rack and stack through cabling, power up and the testing of their equipment. In addition, all customers are provided access to the AMC 24x7 customer service online portal. The portal provides customers full control to access and manage their servers, open trouble tickets and view accounts all day, everyday.

This announcement comes on the heels of the company’s recent achievement of becoming SAS 70 certified. The SAS 70 Audit was completed by SAS 70 Solutions, the largest audit firm in the nation exclusively dedicated to the delivery of SAS 70 audit services. AMC has entered into a 5 year agreement with SAS 70 audit services to conduct bi-annual audits of their policies and procedures. A SAS 70 audit is not simply a checklist, a third party public accounting firm conducts a detailed evaluation to ensure and demonstrate that a service organization is deemed to have satisfactory controls and safeguards to host or process information belonging to customers in an environment such as Atlantic Metro Communications’. All of AMC’s facilities and network nodes have met or exceeded the SAS 70 audit requirements according to standards set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

“We are excited to announce our new Internet Data Center facility in New York City at 32 Avenue of the Americas,” commented Stephen Klenert, Chief Executive Officer of Atlantic Metro Communications. “We worked hard to pass our SAS 70 audit and we’re very proud of this accomplishment. With the implementation of the Sarbanes Oxley Act, it is important that AMC continues to exceed our customer’s expectations for service, especially in such a competitive market.”
