Data Center Space

Since day one, JaxNAP was designed to provide and maintain a net-neutral standard. The internet is growing fast and we've been growing with it since 2004.

In 2015 we started offering our 2N facility to enterprise networks, cloud, and colocation providers.

The bread and butter of JaxNAP is our highly available, net neutral network options, and our 2N power design with diesel & UPS battery backup power sources.

A Meet-Me Room is a space that is used to physically connect networks from different firms.

Multiple interconnection solutions are made available by our Meet-Me Room. Firms can create a Point of Presence (POP) to allow other firms within JaxNAP to interconnect with them. Here firms can also have access to the Jacksonville Internet Exchange (JXIX), a net-neutral source to connect to small networks and large fiber backbones.

Strategic Location

Located in Jacksonville, FL.

Situated next to the AT&T switch hub and JEA’s chilled water plant, the JaxNAP facility sits at the crossroads of the north/south and east/west fiber routes that converge in downtown Jacksonville. Adding in that this location also provides a direct connection to the most reliable municipally-owned electric grid in Florida ensures that our infrastructure is not only convenient to access, but always up and running as well.

Our Infastructure

Built to Last

Enjoy Peace of Mind

Operating a NAP out of Florida comes with its own unique set of environmental concerns and issues – namely extreme weather. With the threat of damaging winds and heavy rain always lurking just beyond the horizon, you can enjoy plenty of peace of mind that your colocation and data center infrastructure is stored safely within a building that is designed to withstand the full-force of a CAT 5 hurricane.
