Xecunet LLC has opened a new 20,000 square foot data center in Frederick, Maryland to accommodate its growing colocation business, the company said this week. The new facility on Industry Lane in Frederick is three times larger than Xecunet’s previous data center, which will continue to operate, Operations Manager Dallas Kincaid told local media.

Kincaid hopes to buy more space at his location by the end of 2008 or early 2009. While there are many large data centers in Washington and northern Virginia, there is not enough capacity north of the city in the Maryland suburbs north of the city, according to Kincaid. Xecunet hopes to fill that void. “I foresee us having 60,000 to 70,000 square feet in the future,” Kincaid said.
