Data center operator Peak 10 will more than double its Jacksonville operation by adding a second data center to support the company's rapid growth in Florida. The expansion will give Peak 10 nine data centers spread throughout the eastern United States. The company expects the new facility to be completed before the third quarter of this year.
"With our recent acquisition in Nashville and facility expansions or second data centers in four of our existing markets since 2005, Peak 10 is aggressively responding to customer growth and the increased demand for outsourced IT services in all of our markets," said David Jones, president and chief executive officer of Peak 10. "Consistent with our growth strategy, we will continue to aggressively pursue expansion opportunities organically and through acquisitions nationwide."
Peak 10 says it needs additional data center space in Jacksonville to meet current and future demand for infrastructure hosting and managed services. The new data center will be built on the same property as Peak 10's existing facility.
"Our business in Jacksonville continues its consistent growth as more and more organizations look to outsource the management of complex information technology environments," said Allen Skipper, vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Jacksonville. "The expansion project underway confirms our long-term commitment to the Jacksonville business community."
Peak 10 owns and operates data centers in Nashville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Louisville, Jacksonville and Tampa. Clients in the Jacksonville market including the Gator Bowl, Siemens, Firehouse Subs, Vurv Technology, Sea Star Line and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
