Managed hosting provider Windstream Hosted Solutions has opened its third state-of-the-art data center in Charlotte as part of the company’s continued expansion. The new 7,200-square-foot center increases the company’s critical load capacity in the Charlotte market by over 35 percent and is located on one of the city’s primary power grid arteries.
Windstream (formerly Hosted Solutions) now operates three SAS 70 Type II certified facilities in the Charlotte market. The company also operates data centers in Raleigh and Cary, N.C.; Boston, Mass.; Newton, Iowa; State College and Ephrata, Pa.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Atlanta, Ga., and Nashville, Tenn.
"We are known for being a trusted data center partner to companies of all sizes, from small to mid-size enterprises to some of the largest Fortune 100 companies in the world," said Kip Turco, senior vice president of data center operations at Windstream Hosted Solutions. "Because of this reputation, we are experiencing tremendous demand for data center outsourcing in all of our markets, including Charlotte, and are well-positioned to continue on this expansion path as more companies move their IT infrastructures to the cloud."
Windstream Corp. (WIN), headquartered in Little Rock, Ark., is an S&P 500 communications and technology company with operations in 29 states and the District of Columbia and about $4 billion in annual revenues. Windstream acquired Hosted Solutions last November for about $310 million.
