U.S. IT infrastructure and cloud hosting services provider, Peak 10, is undergoing a multi-phase expansion at its Nashville, Tennessee location. Phase 1 includes a new cloud cluster as well as 6,600 square feet of additional data center space in the company’s Nashville 4 facility. Phase 2 will involve the build-out of a new data center in Nashville.
Peak 10’s newest cloud cluster is a multi-million dollar investment built on Cisco‘s Unified Computing System (UCS) environment, which serves as the network backbone for the company’s cloud hosting infrastructure and provides compute resources to ensure scalability and overall performance.
Peak 10 customers will have more hands-on features with the UCS-based cloud cluster such as self-provisioning, burstable cloud hosting services, and enhanced compliance, redundancy and replication capabilities. Peak 10 deployed its first cloud cluster in Nashville in 2008. The new cluster will accommodate more than 100 cloud hosting customers in the greater Nashville area and across the U.S.
Phase 2 will involve the build-out of a new data center in Nashville which will meet Tier 3 standards including multiple independent distribution paths serving the IT equipment and dual power inputs. Further details on this facility will be released in 2015.
25 Data Centers in the U.S.
“We are rapidly adding to our community of approximately 400 customers in the Nashville area each month, which prompted the need to expand,” said David Smith, Peak 10 vice president and general manager for Nashville operations. “We are increasing our capacity to deliver colocation and cloud services to exceed the IT needs of a vibrant, greater Nashville business community both now, and in the future.”
Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Peak 10 operates 25 data centers in ten U.S. markets, including three in Nashville, and serves a diverse range of customers in the U.S. and abroad. The company was named Cisco’s 2014 Data Center Cloud Partner of the Year in the Americas and was most recently named a partner in Cisco’s Intercloud, a worldwide network of interconnected clouds.
