1025Connect positions former LIDARC/ancotel facility for growth

The datacenter that’s still colloquially referred to as LIDARC (Long Island Data and Recovery Center) has changed hands twice over the recent years. First, it was acquired by German provider ancotel in July 2010. Subsequently, Equinix purchased ancotel in May 2012; however, ancotel USA (basically LIDARC) was not included in the deal. Dan Lunde, former LIDARC, and prior to that, Ancotel, employee, purchased the asset and rebranded it as 1025Connect and renamed the datacenter LI1. Ancotel had ambitious plans for the facility; however, those were put on hold for 18 months leading up to the Equinix acquisition. 1025Connect has taken the datacenter out of stealth mode and is emphasizing two unique connectivity attributes the facility offers: it is the first hop away from Level 3 Communication’ trans-Atlantic subsea cable landing station and offers Manhattan bypass to New Jersey thereafter.
