‘Peak 10 + ViaWest,’ the current name for the entity that combines colocation providers Peak 10 and ViaWest, plans to expand its Brookwood data center in Hillsboro, Oregon.

The company will add 114,700 square feet (10,655 sq m) to the site in a separate building, set adjacent to the existing facility. The combined footprint of the two buildings will total approximately 220,000 square feet (20,439 sq m).

“We are seeing great demand for connectivity-enabled colocation and highly-reliable hybrid IT solutions across the country, and especially in the greater Portland area,” said Chris Downie, CEO at Peak 10 + ViaWest.

Earlier in the year, Brookwood was chosen as the US point of presence for the New Cross Pacific and Hawaiki submarine cables. Downie said: “Our Brookwood data center is a highly sought after location due its impressive high-density capacity and impending carrier-neutral, low-latency connectivity to Asia and the South Pacific.

“Our customers - and the industry - will continue to see us add new capacity and capabilities to our data centers to address this demand.”

Peak 10 + ViaWest, which was formed following Peak 10’s acquisition of ViaWest for $1.7bn in June, last month purchased a 203,000 square foot (18,859 sq m) data center in Philadelphia, and announced it had completed a 88,000 square foot (8,175 sq m) expansion of its data center in Englewood, Compark.
