Red Hat takes space at Peak 10's Raleigh data center

Red Hat, provider of enterprise software based on open-source technologies, has chosen Peak 10 as one of its colocation data center providers.


The software firm will use Peak 10's Raleigh, North Carolina, data center to support service delivery to its customers, the provider announced Thursday. Peak 10 facilities will also provide a private test lab for Red Hat's research-and-development team.


Moving infrastructure to the Raleigh facility is part of a global IT infrastructure overhaul Red Hat is going through. Jim Palermo, the company's IT infrastructure manager for the Americas, told Focus in February that the new site would become a hub for Red Hat's eastern-US operations.


Additionally, the lab space is where the company is consolidating about 60 of its global engineering labs. Until now, the labs have been setting up and using their own IT rooms in office buildings they occupy, and the consolidation is an attempt to centralize this highly distributed infrastructure.


Lee Congdon, Red Hat's CIO, said, “Moving significant parts of our IT infrastructure to Peak 10 to support our global service delivery made its team an extension of our team, allowing us to concentrate on our core competencies and scale our business more rapidly.


“Peak 10 collaborated with us to design a solution that best fits our needs. By outsourcing to Peak 10, we have already experienced efficiencies and cost savings that we expect will have a positive impact on our bottom line.”


Peak 10 serves as one of the hubs for Red Hat’s Americas IT network. Data and applications from Red Hat’s other US data centers feed into Peak 10’s facility, which plugs directly into Red Hat’s data centers around the world.


Peak 10 is currently expanding the Raliegh data center. In addition to this location, the company operates data centers in nine other markets in around the US.
