Flexential has unveiled its newly expanded Charlotte, North Carolina data center.
The 20,000 square foot expansion at the company’s 'Charlotte - North' facility marks Flexential's third expansion in the last month.
The Charlotte – North data center now offers 3.3MW of power capacity and 62,589 sq ft of space, an increase of 1.5MW and 20,000 sq ft, respectively. This brings the company’s total Charlotte capacity to 6MW, with a footprint of more than 129,000 sq ft.
The company, formed last year as the combination between Peak 10 and ViaWest, said they will hold an open house at the data center this Thursday, but have not said when the expanded space will be ready for business.
Chris Downie, Flexential CEO, said: “Charlotte is where we planted one of our first flags and a touchstone for our entire business. At Flexential, we anticipate the capacity needs of our customers and build to ensure they can achieve their IT goals today and well into the future. This investment will allow us to continue expanding the services we provide to our family of partners here in the city, and to help support this community’s economic success.”
Mike Montagna, VP of information systems at Charlotte Regional Business Alliance, said: “Flexential understands the needs of Charlotte’s tech companies, because they’ve been here from the beginning. A reliable partner to our vital technology industry, Flexential has played a significant role in the rapid expansion of this sector and the growth of our regional economy."
Just two weeks ago, the company announced expansions at both its Portland, Oregon and Nashville, Tennessee facilities.
Flexential’s Nashville data center will be expanded by 40,000 square feet, while the company said that its new Portland facility will be Flexential's 'largest to date,' bringing their Portland footprint to over 500,000 gross square feet.
