American infrastructure specialist Peak 10 is expanding its data center campus in Cincinnati, adding 13,000 square feet of raised floor space.

The new facility will be especially suitable for highly regulated industries like healthcare and finance, since it is fully compliant with SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3, HIPAA, PCI DSS, FISMA and ITAR requirements.

“The construction of our second data center facility here allows us to deliver our enterprise-level data center services and cloud so customers can continue to grow without the concern of data security or need to make investments for infrastructure regulatory compliance requirements,” said PJ Kiggins, vice president and general manager for Peak 10’s Cincinnati operations.

Peak 10 is a cloud and managed IT services provider founded in 2000 with headquarters in Charlotte, New Carolina. It operates 27 data centers across the US, with a focus on mid-market businesses.

To meet regional demand, the company is expanding its facility at 5307 Muhlhauser Road in West Chester, Ohio. It is moving the servers into a new 20,000-square foot building, which will also host the related power and cooling equipment.

Peak 10 says that the site will be capable of serving hundreds more customers throughout Ohio and northern Indiana and will bring its total Cincinnati presence to more than 44,000 square feet.

“Our consistent growth in all of our markets is the result of mid-market businesses in need of a true IT partner that can offer consultative expertise to support their long-term growth goals,” said David Jones, chairman and CEO of Peak 10.

“While we evaluate other markets and opportunities we continue to realize a consistent, need for colocation and hybrid cloud solutions in our existing markets like Cincinnati.”
