Terremark NAP of the Americas - Miami
At 750,000 square feet, this expansive facility was designed to link Latin America to the rest of the world. There are 160 global clients who use the data center. Miami is a one of the most connected cities in the U.S., with a convergence of optical, Ethernet backbone and voice communications. Yet, as you might expect, it is also a prime location for hurricanes and floods. Terremark built the Tier 4 facility to withstand a 100-year flood. There are 19 million pounds of concrete ballast designed to survive a CAT5 hurricane.
