Hurricane Electric Expands Colo Space

Colocation provider Hurricane Electric says it has completed the second phase build out of its new colocation facility located in Silicon Valley, doubling the capacity of the six-month old facility at 48233 Warm Springs Blvd., in Fremont, Calif.

Hurricane Electric said the demand for colocation space at the new facility was so strong that the first phase sold out almost immediately, necessitating a second phase build out earlier than initially planned. The expansion adds five additional private suites, several hundred cabinets, and has more than doubled the capacity originally available.

“Business is booming; the response to our new colocation facility has been overwhelmingly positive and demand for colocation space is very strong,” said Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric. “We were astonished to see how fast initial capacity sold out at our new facility and are excited to have a 208,000-square-foot facility that will allow us ample room to increase capacity as future demand continues to grow.”

48233 Warm Springs was also designed with individually locking suites, giving Hurricane Electric customers the ability to choose between colocation space in shared and private suites. Industry standard 19-inch rack mountable cabinets with perforated doors panels, combination-locking doors, and high-powered fans are located in each suite. Hurricane Electric’s new facility is engineered to support high-density applications such as blade servers.
