Keystone NAP, the new modular data center facility located at the old US Steel Fairless Works in Bucks County that announced in November it was opening in early 2015, today said its first KeyBlock module has arrived. Additional modules will ship over the next few weeks.
A full KeyBlock, measuring roughly 45 feet by 21 feet and weighing over 50,000 lbs, is delivered in two sections. Custom-designed KeyBlock IT modules were co-developed with electrical equipment giant Schneider Electric. The modules can be tailored to meet the needs of individual clients, resulting in increased efficiencies.
Keystone NAP refers to itself as "the only advanced data center serving the Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York markets." It was founded by experienced Philadelphia entrepreneur Peter Ritz (Xtium, AirClic) and received Series A1 funding from a group of Philadelphia investors led by Ira Lubert (of LLR Partners and several Philadelphia-area investment groups) and other investors arranged by DH Capital.
