Managed hosting firm CentriLogic announced in late April that it had completed the second phase of upgrades at its Lenoir, North Carolina data center. A 4,000 square-foot section of the facility underwent multiple phases of enhancements in order to be able to support CentriLogic's cloud and enterprise hosting business.
The newly renovated site will be used by Dacentec, CentriLogic's bare-metal dedicated server division. Dacentec was acquired by the company in 2013 as part of a deal that also included the North Carolina data center, which is about 85 miles west of Winston-Salem and approximately 72 miles east of Asheville. The division works primarily with small and medium-sized businesses. CentriLogic has invested a lot of resources into growing Dacentec, including adding 200 racks and capacity for 10,000 additional servers at the North Carolina data center.
Space and capacity increased for Lenoir facility
Over the past year, more than $4 million has been spent on upgrades to the North Carolina data center. The first phase of renovations was completed in September 2014 and entailed a doubling of the facility's critical power capacity, additional cooling capacity, enhancements to physical security. An expansion of 9,000 square feet was also completed, which included a 5,000 square-foot data hall reserved specifically for colocation and managed services. With the added space, the site has an overall footprint of 23,000 square feet.
"Our Lenoir, North Carolina facility has been pivotal to the extended delivery capabilities of our managed services and cloud offerings worldwide, and the enhancements to the facility's infrastructure have been necessary to support growing demand from local and international customers," said Robert Offley, president and CEO of CentriLogic."With this latest upgrade, we can now deliver our entire suite of hosting services and solutions from the Lenoir facility."
Since the acquisition of Dacentec in 2013, CentriLogic has close to doubled the number of physical servers deployed at the Lenoir, North Carolina data center and has increased its local workforce by around 40 percent. The company is projecting an annualized revenue growth rate of approximately 50 percent for the facility in 2015. CentriLogic also owns and operates nine other interconnected data centers, including facilities in North America, Europe and Asia.
