Peak 10, a national IT infrastructure and cloud hosting services provider, broke ground on the company’s 5th and newest data center in Franklin, Tennessee. Located approximately 20 miles south of Nashville in Williamson County, Franklin is also home to four other Peak 10 data centers.
Upon completion, the new data center will offer 20,000 square feet of office and support space, and 50,000 square feet of data center space, which will be built out over time. Peak 10 also operates data center facilities in nine other U.S. markets.
“Nashville has been noted by various publications and polls as one of the best places for doing business, and its economy ranks as one of the fastest-growing in the country,” said David Smith, vice president and general manager for Peak 10’s Nashville operations. “The addition of this facility will enable us to better meet the ever-increasing demand for reliable, enterprise-class colocation and cloud services.”
Like all Peak 10 data centers, the new data center facility would feature high-level physical security, fully redundant network architecture, and top-tier equipment and technologies from industry-leading equipment manufacturers and technology companies.
Prior to opening, the new Peak 10 data center will be fully commissioned by an independent quality assurance and engineering team. The process applies key standards for mission-critical data center facilities including ANSI/TIA-942 and other standards established by ASHRAE, NFPA and critical infrastructure manufacturers.
Peak 10 holds the Cisco Cloud Provider Certification with a Cisco Powered Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) designation.
