Peak 10, Inc. today announced a major addition of 42,000 square feet of space at its Raleigh, N.C. data center. The expansion will bring the total size of Peak 10 Raleigh to approximately 70,000 square feet, making it the largest of the company’s 10 facilities. Peak 10 said it plans to add more than 150,000 additional square feet of growth capacity in 2007.
“This expansion is part of our plan to continue investing in our customers’ growth by providing the right data center capacity and services,” said David H. Jones, president and chief executive officer of Peak 10. “It’s the culmination of an intensive nine month planning process for a long-term investment in a solid growth market.”
The Raleigh expansion follows Peak 10’s February 2007 acquisition of bayMountain, a Richmond, Va.-based data center company. Peak 10 now operates in seven markets in the Southeastern U.S.
Peak 10’s Raleigh customers include such companies as Global Knowledge, Pergo and SchoolDude.com. “We have one of the highest customer retention and referral rates in the industry,” Greg Rollet, Peak 10 Raleigh vice president and general manager, said. “This expansion enhances our ability to support additional options related to power infrastructure, design-build for customers, and disaster recovery services for both personnel and servers as well as the continued availability of raised floor growth.”
Jones said Peak 10 is continuing to position itself for “strategic, sensible growth.” The company owns and operates world class facilities in Richmond, Va.; Nashville, Tenn.; Louisville, Ky.; Tampa and Jacksonville, Fla; and Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C.
