Peak 10 Adds Data Center in Ft. Lauderdale
April 16th, 2012 By: Rich Miller
Peak 10 Inc. has opened its second data center facility in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the company said today. The 11,000 square foot addition to an existing site brings Peak 10’s total raised floor footprint in south Florida to 66,000 square feet. Peak 10 operates nine other technology campuses in the U.S.
“Our team has seen an increasing demand for our consultative approach to delivering rock solid solutions to customers across all industries,” said Stefan Pittinger, regional vice president and general manager of Peak 10 South Florida. “We are glad to have our South Florida 2 facility open for business to meet this demand. Peak 10 provides cloud computing and cloud storage services to a growing number of high-growth companies, making it a business engine for the South Florida region’s economic development and stability. Our new expansion and steady growth are a direct result of these high-growth customers.”
The second South Florida data center is interconnected with Peak 10’s private network so customers can leverage 20 data centers in nine other markets when implementing disaster recovery solutions.
“We remain committed to investing capital and resources in our markets – increasing the total premium data center footprint, as well as advancing our cloud infrastructure solutions, and bolstering delivery and support of our services to maximize the investment that our customers make in Peak 10 as a trusted advisor,” said David Jones, the president and CEO of Peak 10. “During the past year, we have completed significant expansions on the Louisville, Richmond and Nashville campuses and for cloud solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers. We will continue to make enhancements to provide the best possible customer experience.”
this plane crashed less than a quarter mile from PEAK 10 Fort Lauderdale facility. As a current customer of PEAK 10 Fort Lauderdale, this is VERY alarming to me. I felt that this information should be shared as i just found out the PEAK 10 facility is literately at the end of the run-way for Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.
A quick check of Google Maps indicates the crash site was actually more than 2 miles from the Peak 10 facility. If you’re really a customer in this facility, it’s curious that you “just found out” that it’s adjacent to an airport. If that detail is relevant to you, perhaps it should have been considered and evaluated beforehand.
