Expedient today announced the opening of a 32,000 square feet, 2.5-megawatt data center in Denver. It is intended to better support the company’s expanding client demand in the western United States. This is Expedient’s third new data center in less than 45 days. As part of Expedient’s new market growth objectives, this data center will join Phoenix and Milwaukee in providing clients with access to the company’s range of universal multi-cloud services.
Expedient’s range of multi-cloud services and capabilities are available at the new facility which can accommodate up to 31,000 physical servers. Expedient’s ‘Cloud Different’ vision, which was released in April and helps clients improve hybrid-IT operations, performance, and costs across a variety of environments, including co-location, public, private, and multi-cloud, is supported by the facility.
This is the company’s 14th colocation data center in the United States, allowing clients to guarantee that their applications and workloads are optimized and operating on the best IT platform available, regardless of where their infrastructure is located.
“Expedient has been on an incredible trajectory and the opening of our Denver data center is another significant milestone,” said Bryan Smith, Senior VP and Chief Strategy Officer at Expedient. “We see a great opportunity in Denver to provide businesses of all sizes with an a la carte menu of IT capabilities and services that enables them to make the most of their existing IT investments while moving to the cloud. We’re building out our presence in the western US and getting a foothold in Denver is key to that expansion.”
Tier 3 Data Centers
Expedient’s 14 data centers are built to meet or surpass Tier 3 data center requirements as established by the Uptime Institute’s Data Center Classification System. This necessitates the installation of end-to-end, fully redundant power and cooling infrastructure systems on-site. In addition, all 14 data center sites will serve as an onramp to the cloud, allowing clients to access the company’s whole suite of capabilities and services.
“We are excited to welcome Expedient to the Colorado technology ecosystem,” said Frannie Matthews, CEO of the Colorado Technology Association. “Expedient’s commitment to locate its new data center in Colorado speaks well of our state as a vibrant technology hub.”
Expedient’s ‘Cloud Different’ methodology provides an on-ramp to the cloud, allowing all applications to be optimized and delivered (both legacy and cloud native).
Expedient’s colocation and cloud-enabled data centers meet a number of legal requirements, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
