Windstream Unveils New Boston Data Center
Windstream Hosted Solutions Boston data center:
- Spans 25,000 sq ft
- Located in Charlestown, MA, and is easily accessible from Route 93
- Features new environmentally friendly technologies for efficient cooling as well as high-efficiency UPS units and emergency generators
- Offers redundant utility feeds, an unparalleled network infrastructure and a seasoned operations team
“Enterprise businesses of all sizes are challenged with handling an increasing amount of data and require a data center that can scale as their needs expand,” said Kip Turco, senior vice president of data center operations at Windstream Hosted Solutions. “We have invested heavily in our Boston facility because there is a current lack of data center space in the region. The Boston data center is one of several facilities in our portfolio being expanded, and we expect to extend our footprint into other markets in the near future.”
According to Forrester Research, the global cloud computing market will reach $241 billion in 2020 compared to $40.7 billion in 2010. Forrester also predicts that 2011 will be the year of cloud implementation.
