CoreLink Data Centers, LLC has announced that it has earmarked additional capital to increase the amount of power and cooling at the company's Las Vegas data center by 1 Megawatt (MW), facilitating strong existing client growth at the facility while enabling CoreLink to continue to serve higher density new customers.

The expansion will also provide sufficient data center cooling capacity for all customers. Also included is the installation of additional generator capacity for N+1 redundancy in support of critical backup systems. The process will facilitate easy upgrade migration enabling CoreLink to increase future UPS capacity.

"Our customers depend on our company's 24/7 responsiveness, transparency and infrastructure security. As our existing customers grow, CoreLink has recognized the need to accommodate their needs under our 100 percent Uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA) covering all infrastructure elements and service metrics," said Charles Picasso, chairman and CEO of CoreLink.

"This includes increasing our capacity to assure that present and future customers have the available bandwidth to support their growth by providing them with ample power and cooling," Picasso said. "This reflects our pledge to provide flexible, scalable data center services and a level of IT support that not only accommodates clients' existing requirements, but anticipates their future needs."

Under the Las Vegas data center's power expansion initiative, CoreLink will upsize its utility transformer; upgrade its generator; add comparable UPS systems capacity (2N Configuration) along with a related increase in cooling capacity.

"CoreLink continues to demonstrate its strong commitment to providing companies like ours with a level of infrastructure support and security that inspires confidence," said Chris Fanini, chief technology officer of long-time CoreLink customer Weebly Inc. "We chose CoreLink not only because of its existing services and customer service commitment, but also because of its ability to accommodate our rapid growth and unique requirements.

"Increased power at its Las Vegas data center facility assures us that we'll have more than enough capacity to support our company's needs as we continue to expand," Fanini said.

CoreLink will perform the power expansion at the Las Vegas data center without any downtime or service interruption to existing customers. The project is expected to be completed over the summer timeframe.
