Expedient, a cloud computing and data center Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, has completed a $14 million expansion of its Nova Place data center in Pittsburgh.

The data center expansion adds 10,000 square feet of new raised floor computer room space and cloud capacity for IaaS and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solutions. Several thousand additional square feet have been dedicated to fully redundant switchgear, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems, and emergency generators with up to two megawatts of demand and fuel capacity. Additionally, the renovated and expanded data center is powered by new dedicated and redundant commercial utility power service.

The Nova Place data center is one of two Expedient data centers in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. Its expansion marks Expedient’s third such undertaking in Pittsburgh in 14 years, and was one of the company’s three major expansion projects this year, which included an 8,000-square-foot expansion and renovation of Expedient’s Boston data center that was completed in March 2017 as well as a $4.5 million upgrade of its Indianapolis data center that was completed in November.

“The significant investment we have made in our Nova Place data center well-positions us as the region’s leading provider of IaaS and cloud solutions, and demonstrates our commitment to providing leading-edge technical solutions to our customers,” said David Saliba, Regional Vice President for Expedient.

Colocation, Private Cloud

Like all Expedient data centers, Nova Place offers all Expedient services from physical server colocation to public and private cloud infrastructure, and a suite of managed IT infrastructure services, along with 24x7x365 on-site support.

All Expedient data centers are connected through Layer 2 network access and a multi-gigabit private fiber backbone, creating a distributed presence for critical IT infrastructure services. And, all Expedient data centers offer SOC 1 (SSAE-18) and SOC 2 audit attestations, and support customers’ needs to meet PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and other industry/regulatory compliance mandates.
