Cloud computing firm Expedient announced in late January that it had once again expanded its Cleveland data center. This newest phase marks the company's seventh expansion in the area within the last eight years.
The company has now added its third facility in the Cleveland area, creating a 14,000 square-foot site that will provide further support for the two other centers in the area. The first phase of the building is complete, offering more than 6,500 square feet of available raised-floor space. The facility has two 1,500 kW generators and 300 tons of cooling capacity.
The new site will provide customers with direct access to all of Expedient's other data centers through the use of the company's fully redundant fiber optic backbone network. The facility will serve as a home for Expedient's newest cloud computing and virtual hosting pods that have been created in an N 2 configuration. The pods each offer more than 3,000 GB of memory which will be allocated in 1 GB increments and can be scaled on demand.
"This latest expansion was built in response to the region's continuing demand for secure and reliable IT outsourcing solutions and services," said David Saliba, regional vice president for Expedient.
In addition to the new Cleveland data center, Expedient recently announced the opening of a second Columbus data center, which offers 29,000 square feet in its initial phase of construction. In total, the company operates 11 facilities in seven states, including five Ohio data centers, a Maryland data center and a Tennessee data center.
