Verizon Terremark has developed one of the most advanced and secure data centers in the world - the NAP of the Capital Region.


Strategically located 60 miles from Washington D.C. in Culpeper, Va., the NAP of the Capital Region (NCR) opened in June 2008 as the most secure and technologically sophisticated data center facility in the eastern United States, a groundbreaking design that meets the needs of today’s power, space and bandwidth-intensive applications and hot/warm sites for disaster recovery and COOP environments.

Each near-D.C. data center structure is a secure bunker, designed to provide clients who require colocation space that meets the government's standards for secure colocation facilities managed by Terremark’s Federal Group. Inside each D.C. data center, a professional security staff maintains and operates sophisticated surveillance systems, biometric scanners and secured areas for processing of staff, customers and visitors. Built to a power capacity of 160 watts per square foot, the NAP of the Capital Region accommodates today’s power requirements for high-density computing environments with 100% service level agreements on power and environmentals. The 72,000 square foot main office building includes a 150-seat auditorium built to federal government physical security standards and approximately 50,000 square feet of Class A office space that can be built to meet specific customer demands.

A complete suite of services from colocation and connectivity to managed hosting, cloud computing and comprehensive disaster recovery solutions is offered, including solutions utilizing Terremark’s Infinistructure utility computing platform including Enterprise Cloud services. 

Along with the highly secure meeting and office space available to Federal government and enterprise customers, NCR's headquarters building is home to Terremark's newest, state-of-the-art Network Operations Center (NOC) and conference rooms featuring advanced audiovisual and teleconferencing equipment to connect Terremark employees and customers worldwide. The building, which will also house the company's on-campus staff, is equipped with fully redundant backup systems for power and cooling infrastructure.
