Managed services-focused data center provider Expedient has finished the first phase of its third data center in Cleveland, where the company is based.
The expansion adds to the company’s already sizable Ohio data center portfolio. Besides the three Cleveland facilities, the company has one in the Columbus metro, with another one currently under construction.
Expedient goes after what are often referred to as secondary, or tier-two, data center markets. These metros are not the traditional data center hotbeds like New York City or Ashburn, Virginia, but there is a lot of demand for data center services there nonetheless.
The provider has small and mid-size data centers in Boston, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and Memphis.
The most recent Ohio data center expansion brings about 6,500 square feet of raised floor to the market in a 14,000 square foot facility.
Expedient, whose legal name is Continental Broadband, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Landmark Media Enterprises, a Virginia-based broadcast TV, Internet publishing, and technology services company.
