Data center operator Peak 10 today announced the opening of its second data center at its headquarter location in Charlotte, N.C. The company said its Charlotte facility is now the largest privately-held data center and managed services operation in North Carolina.

“Our expansion in Charlotte demonstrates our proven track record of investing in the markets we serve,” said David H. Jones, president and chief executive officer of Peak 10. “This new center and other expansion projects are being deployed based on the same philosophy that underlies the success of Peak 10 as a company: incremental, success based growth in phases to limit capital exposure but to provide high availability as well as reliable and cost effective solutions for our customers.”


The opening of the second Charlotte data center follows successful expansions by Peak 10 in its Raleigh, N.C. and Louisville, Ky. markets in 2005. The company said it has additional expansion projects planned or near completion in Louisville and its data centers in Tampa and Jacksonville, Fla.

“The new center is an excellent example of how Peak 10 is continuing its commitment to providing facilities and systems that will benefit customers here in Charlotte and those we serve throughout the region,” said Patrick J. O’Brien, vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Charlotte

Peak 10 operates seven data centers and offers a portfolio of managed services to customers including Churchill Downs, LendingTree, GunnAllen Financial, Global Knowledge and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
