North Carolina-based information technology firm, DataChambers started the first phase of renovation of a 50,000 square-foot Research Triangle facility that will become its latest high-availability data center. The firm offers management and monitoring services, colocation and cloud solutions, and backup and recovery options.
In September, DataChambers bought the building, a former Quest Communications telecommunications hub, an eight-acre property in Garner, N.C. Upgrades are planned for completion by this spring.
The building will be brought up to meet Category 3 hurricane standards. Landmark Construction of Winston-Salem is serving as contractor for that portion of the project, and work is ongoing. Upon completion, DataChambers will open the first 10,000 square feet of raised data center flooring at the site and will begin interior renovations to office spaces.

Previously, Wall was CIO and vice president of hosting for StraTech, a global information technology solutions provider. Wall serves on the advisory board for the North Carolina Technology Association and is active in the N.C. Society for Information Management.
