Immedion to Add Data Center Facility in Charleston
Data center and managed services provider Immedion, LLC is building its third data center in South Carolina, this time in Charleston. The new facility, projected to open in spring 2012, expands Immedion’s data center redundancy and disaster recovery offerings. The company now has colocation facilities in Greenville, Columbia and Charleston.
“Locating our third data center in Charleston will better enable us to meet the growing tech needs of the coastal region,” said Immedion CEO, Frank Mobley. “There is a lot of exciting growth in Charleston and we’re confident our colocation facility will be a valuable resource for many of the current businesses located here as well as ones considering coming here. In addition, the provisioning of a third, geographically diverse location allows Immedion to provide uptime for critical technology beyond the capabilities of any single data center location.”
The Immedion facility will be located in the Palmetto Commerce Park near Ladson, and be constructed to withstand high winds normally associated with coastal regions. Wednesday’s announcement “is a prime example of how much Charleston’s knowledge-based economy is expanding,” said Charleston’s Digital Corridor Executive Director, Ernest Andrade. “Immedion is the kind of company we want here and will help attract more companies with the services they provide.”
