Growing managed hosting provider Peak 10 said today that it will build a second data center at its Charlotte headquarters, which will give the company seven facilities. Peak 10 expanded in Raleigh, N.C. and Louisville, Ky. earlier this year. The new Charlotte data center, which is expected to be completed in late second quarter of 2006, will expand Peak 10's North Carolina footprint by 14,000 square feet.
"With three data center expansion projects since the beginning of 2005, we are responding to customer growth and the increased demand for outsourced IT services in a significant way," said David Jones, president and chief executive officer of Peak 10. "The addition of the new data center in Charlotte strengthens our presence in a significant market for our company."
Peak 10 owns and operates world class facilities in Louisville, Ky., Tampa and Jacksonville, Fla. and Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C. It has pursued a regional growth strategy, focusing on second-tier markets in the Southeast. The company was recently ranked the 69th fastest growing private company in America by Inc. magazine.
