American infrastructure specialist Peak 10 is building its third data center in Louisville, Kentucky.

According to Louisville Business First, the 8,700 square foot facility codenamed ‘Lou 3.5’ will open in October. It will grow the total server space available on campus to almost 28,000 square feet.

Building down

Peak 10 is a cloud and managed IT services provider headquarters in Charlotte, New Carolina. It operates 26 data centers across the US.

The company was founded in 2000 and opened its first data center in Louisville in 2004 following the acquisition of local player Xodiax.

The latest expansion is being built in the basement of a leased building at 752 Barret Avenue, and should provide enough space to host 50 additional clients. Business First reports that the total cost of the project stands at around $3 million.

Last month, Peak 10 opened a 60,000 square foot data center in Tampa, Florida, designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. This was the first facility it had built from the ground up.
