Windstream Hosted Solutions plans to build a new data center in Nashville, Tenn., scheduled to open next year, the company announced Monday.
Windstream says the new enterprise-class data center is being built to handle the increased demand for data center and managed services from the company's customers across the U.S. The new facility will be 21,000 square feet with 10,000 square feet of raised floor data center space.
The data center will also support Windstream Hosted Solutions' cloud computing solution, which the company says improves the efficiency and availability of IT resources and applications in organizations, allowing companies to rapidly deploy capacity without capital investments so they can reshape their environment on demand. Windstream Hosted Solutions offers public, private and hybrid cloud solutions to businesses nationwide.
"Our customers demand a superior level of services and reliability, and these new centers, like all of Windstream's facilities, are designed to exceed their expectations," said Kip Turco, Windstream senior vice president of data center operations. "They are being built to the highest specifications, and will enable Windstream to provide the level of service businesses demand, ranging from point managed solutions such as managed security or storage to the complete delivery of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)."
Windstream offers managed and dedicated hosting options, including colocation, cloud computing, and disaster recovery.
