Further broadening its footprint as a provider of cloud hosting services and colocation in the Louisiana region, Venyu has announced its plans to build a new data center. Located in Baton Rouge, LA, the 15,000 sq. ft. facility will help the company meet expanding customer demand.
Venyu’s new data center is designed to provide the highest levels of security, uptime, connectivity, and redundancy. The company’s new facility is expected to open April 2014.
Cloud hosting, colocation services
Building upon the company’s original facility in Louisiana, the expansion site would provide significant upgrades to both security and management – including biometric access and dual authentication at all entrances. Venyu is utilizing an innovative infrastructure design that includes new power and generator systems, hot/cold air isle containment and management, an expanded network and systems infrastructure and concurrent maintenance accessibility to all critical infrastructure components.
“As customers require more compute resources, storage and power, the complexity and capacity requirements of our facilities increase,” said Scott Thompson, CEO of Venyu. “We continue to address these needs by expanding to stay ahead of demand.”
From its two data centers in Louisiana, Venyu serves more than 1,200 customers, providing a wide range of cloud hosting, colocation and other (managed) data center services across industries ranging from government, professional sports and insurance to healthcare and non-profits.
Thompson adds: “Venyu has called Louisiana home for 25 years. Given our success in this region, it only made sense that this location would continue to play an integral role as we enter our next stage of growth.”
