Immedion to Open Facility in Columbia, SC

2 comments

Immedion founder and CEO Frank Mobley speaks at a groundbreaking ceremony for the company's new data center in Columbia, South Carolina.

Immedion is expanding its data center business in South Carolina, adding a new facility in Columbia to complement its existing data center in Greenville. The dedicated hosting and managed services provider said the expansion will bolster its disaster recover offerings and extend its services to other parts of the state.

Immedion will be the first tenant in the South Carolina Research Authority’s Innovation Center technology incubator, located at the University of South Carolina. Immedion plans to build a 5,000 square foot data center in the 73,000 square foot building, which may eventually support 10 to 15 technology companies.

“Locating our second data center in the Innovation Center will better enable us to provide services to businesses in the Midlands as well as throughout the state of South Carolina, said Immedion CEO Frank Mobley. “In addition, the provisioning of a second, geographically diverse location will allow Immedion to provide uptime for critical technology beyond the capabilities of any single data center location.”

Immedion’s new facility ”helps expand a knowledge-based company,” SCRA chief executive Bill Mahoney said. “Immedion is the kind of company we are looking for.”

The Columbia site will offer the same services as the Greenville headquarters, with a focus on outsourced data center services and disaster recovery solutions.
