A New Hampshire, Manchester data center was opened in early June 2015 by FairPoint Communications. It is the second in the state since the telecom company decided to get into cloud storage.
This specific center is designed as a disaster recovery and IT expansion spot for businesses in the New Hampshire region. It continues FairPoint's general strategy of leasing data center space to organizations.
The facility is not expected to add jobs to the region, as it will primarily be monitored remotely rather than staffed on-site. This staff-light method of expanding may prove to be an effective business strategy for managing costs while increasing power and connectivity.
"FairPoint's data centers are strictly controlled environments with essential power, cooling, connectivity and security features, including continuous video monitoring and key card access," said Chris Alberding, FairPoint Communications vice president of product management.
With this new data center, it is likely that FairPoint will be able to service even more organizations and users with cloud storage as time goes on.
