Louisville data center and managed services provider Xodiax will adopt the name of its new parent company, Peak 10 effective September 22. Peak 10 also previewed its new Louisville data center at the event. The new 25,000 square foot facility will be operational in mid-October.

“The change to Peak 10 completes our process of corporate transition that began with the merger of Peak 10 and Xodiax last year,” said Don Esterle, vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Louisville. “Even though there has been a change in name, the people and the commitment we have to our customers and the Louisville market will remain the same. Furthermore, the commitment Peak 10 has made to the Louisville market will go unchanged.

“We will also take full advantage of Peak 10′s visibility and brand recognition through out the region as we continue to grow our business, especially in the areas of data replication, risk mitigation and disaster recovery involving multiple Peak 10 data centers.”

Earlier in the year, Peak 10 announced a large-scale data center expansion project in Louisville just six months after the company acquired Xodiax in November of 2004. The expansion was fueled by Xodiax’s success and the growing demand for high-end managed services and infrastructure hosting in the Louisville market. Peak 10 has increased the size of its Louisville data center by 25,000 square feet, bringing it inline with its other facilities in Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C. and Tampa and Jacksonville, Fla.

The expanded Louisville facility maintains Peak 10′s high standards for security, reliability and redundancy and will also connect to the company’s private network enabling it to offer additional storage, disaster recovery and business continuity services to customers nationwide.

“The Xodiax team integrated flawlessly with Peak 10 from the very beginning and we all have embraced the goal to build a stronger identity among customers, employees, investors and the communities we serve as well as position Peak 10 broadly as a dynamic, diverse data center operator and managed services organization,” said David Jones, president and chief executive officer of Peak 10. “Having separate names did not communicate the scope of Peak 10, and we want to be identified by one single name to clearly and concisely represent the standard of quality we provide customers nationwide.”
