(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – National cloud and data center solutions provider Peak 10 is undergoing a multi-phase expansion on its Atlanta technology campus. Phase 1 includes a new cloud cluster as well as 2,500 square feet of additional premium data center space, bringing the total Atlanta footprint to 30,000 square feet. Phase 2 will involve the build-out of a third Peak 10 data center in the Greater Atlanta region. Details of the third data center will be released later this year.
The new cloud cluster combines new network infrastructure to improve scalability, performance, and enhance redundancy and replication capabilities. It also allows customers to easily manage Virtual Machines (VMs) and maximize cloud server resources.
“The demand from the greater Atlanta business community has been the driver for our expansion,” said Matt Searfoss, vice president and general manager of Peak 10’s Atlanta market. ”The strategy to outsource network infrastructure, ensure business continuity through redundant systems and reduce power consumption are driving more customers to leverage our cloud capabilities.”
Peak 10 has been executing and expanding its cloud strategy since 2007, offering virtualized environments and managed services to help support increasingly complex information technology and data management challenges. In addition to its Atlanta operation, Peak 10 operates nine other technology campuses in the U.S., serving customers around the globe.
“Our cloud infrastructure is robust and continues to scale and expand,” said David Jones, president and CEO of Peak 10. “Because we remain on the forward curve of this technology’s evolution, we track, evaluate and deliver cloud technology benefits to our customers. Our capital investments in data center infrastructure and new cloud clusters in our Atlanta facility and sister markets position us to continue our successful history of serving as a significant business engine for our economy.”
Peak 10’s cloud infrastructure is built in partnership with hardware and software providers like Cisco Systems, EMC and VMware. Cisco’s UCS (Unified Computing System™) environment provides the network backbone and compute resources to ensure scalability and overall performance. The EMC VNX™ series of storage arrays are optimized for virtual applications and produce higher disk performance and reliability for customers.
