Peak 10 is expanding its Louisville operations by adding a third data center to support strong demand for the company's services in the region. The new facility will include more than 10,000 square feet of data center space, giving Peak 10 Louisville a total footprint of 24,000 square feet of data center space.
The new facility will provide expansion space for Peak 10's customers, and will be contiguous to the two original facilities, convenient for customers with a presence in both sites. The expansion will be completed later this year and will boost Peak 10's footprint to 13 data centers within its nine key markets.
The announcement of the new data center comes just a week after Peak 10 said that it has arranged $60 million in funding to support its continued expansion. The company said it would use the funding to "pursue in-market and new market expansions, including acquisitions."
"We are experiencing steady and continual growth and this expansion will meet the current and future demand for our world-class managed IT and data center services in the Louisville marketplace," said Dave Vrona, vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Louisville.
"We have customer commitments for our third data center and continue to see increased demand for outsourced IT services in all of our markets," said Jeff Spalding, Peak 10's executive vice president of market operations. "Peak 10's Louisville expansion supports our business strategy of continued investment in the markets we serve; offering our valued customers next generation data center facilities, services and support they require to grow their businesses."
Peak 10 now has data centers in Cincinnati, Oh.; Atlanta, Ga.; Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C.; Tampa and Jacksonville, Fla.; Nashville, Tenn.; Louisville, Ky.; and Richmond, Va. The company's customers include Churchill Downs, MaximumASP, LendingTree, Rivals.com, Global Knowledge, Pergo, The Fresh Market and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
