Mortgage insurance provider United Guaranty is planning to build a new 25,000 square foot data center in Forsyth County, North Carolina, which will eventually house 40 workers slated to relocate from the company’s Greensboro headquarters. Details are still being worked out, according to Tom Routh, vice president of administration, who said growth in the downtown facility required the expansion. “Ultimately, we decided we needed to find a site and build our own data center,” Routh told the Business Journal of the Greater Triad Area.
The company decided to build from scratch after it was unable to find an existing site that could be effectively upgraded. “We couldn’t find something there that met these requirements,” said Routh, citing the need for fiber connectivity and power supply from two different substations.
