Time Warner Cable officially opened a new Denver data center worth $38 million in February. The Colorado data center, which has been under construction for two years, is a new national facility for Time Warner. The company's Charlotte data center is its other national data center location.
"Think of these two centers as the brains of our operations," Ryan Kelly, Time Warner's communication manager wrote on the company blog. "Our two National Data Centers work in tandem to support and safeguard all of our customer services including email, billing records, Wi-Fi, high-speed data, phone, IntelligentHome, and of course IP-based video products including our TWC TV app."
This expansion adds 75 percent more capacity to Time Warner's Internet hosting capacity. The data center is 170,000 square feet with 1,600 racks of server equipment and supports 6400 kilowatts of critical load.
The location was chosen to provide access to a region of the country that Time Warner had previously not had a presence in, as well as to gain the advantage of free cooling thanks to Denver's cool climate.
