Take Us Back to the NJFX Launch!

September 21, 2016

On September 21st, one year after breaking ground on its Tier 3, carrier-neutral facility, the NJFX team welcomed guests to what was considered by all, a data center launch to remember. The two-story, 64,800-sq. ft. colocation facility located in Wall, New Jersey opened its doors for the first time to mark the completion of the second phase of the NJFX campus build out.


With a number of key sponsors including Tata Communications, Lightpath, Windstream, Sparkle and more, the event was guaranteed to not disappoint. And even though the room was filled with scrumptious food, beverages and strategic networking opportunities, NJFX Founder and CEO, Gil Santaliz, took the celebration a few steps further.

None other than Formula One race car legend himself, Mr. Mario Andretti, made an appearance and participated in an intimate fireside chat – moderated by JSA CEO Jaymie Scotto Cutaia and featuring Mr. Santaliz and COO of Tata Communications, John Hayduk – to discuss career highlights, challenges and what “drove” him to become the fastest.


As part of sponsoring the event, Tata Communications installed its virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) F1® experiences that gave attendees the opportunity to feel the adrenaline rush of racing in the Grand Prix. Attendees raced for the fastest time and those that stayed high on the leaderboard went home with a F1 helmet signed by Mr. Andretti himself.

“This launch event was crucial for our team. It not only marked the day that we accomplished our goal of building the first Tier 3 carrier neutral colocation campus that intersects where subsea cables from around the globe meet,” comments Santaliz. “But it also allowed our friends and family to see that hard work really does pay off with enough focus, determination and help from your friends and colleagues.”
