Hurricane Electric will expand its operations with a huge 208,000 square foot colocation facility in Fremont, Calif., the company said this week. The new facility, located just two miles from its existing headquarters, adds to the provider's three other colocation facilities in Fremont, San Jose and New York, NY. The new data center is expected to be ready for customers in four months, and is more than four times the size of the existing Fremont facility.
"We have experienced tremendous growth over the past few years that has necessitated the opening of another data center," said Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric. "With its size and proximity to so many major networks, the new Fremont facility will give us the room to grow in the long run and become a significant global epicenter of Internet traffic."
