The expansion added 300kW of capacity with 10 kW racks along with new redundant 2N power and N+1 cooling infrastructure.

A company representative told DCD the upgrades also include a new Meet Me Room adjacent to the data center with multiple carriers including Lumen, Charter, Verizon, Zayo, Windstream, Cogent, MCNC, and Intellquent; dual authentication biometric security; new fiber duct and cable tray installed between the racks and the Meet Me Room; and a new redundant power fed via Duke Energy.

“The market needs for interconnect are evolving in Tier 2 and Tier 3 markets and traditional data center designs are not built to accommodate the growing, specific requirements for latency and power, as well as the flexibility needed by today’s applications and the companies that leverage them to drive business forward,” said Bill Cook, chairman, Deep Edge.

Focused on tier two markets, Deep Edge also operates facilities in Portland, Maine; Reno, Nevada; and Columbus, Ohio. The Charlotte facility is listed online as a Cogent Communications site.
