Savvis Plans More Expansions for 2012

Savvis has new ownership, but the managed hosting provider is continuing to expand its data center infrastructure. The company, now a business unit of parent CenturyLink, has completed three data center expansion projects already this year, and has four more facility expansions scheduled to come online in the next 90 days.
