Quest has completed the Phase 4 expansion of its highly secure and resilient Service Delivery Center (SDC) located at the former McClellan Air Force Base, just outside Sacramento. Quest’s McClellan SDC is ready to fulfill customers’ needs with an additional 10,000 square feet of fully operational space offering an all-new networking, electrical, and environmental conditioning infrastructure.
“I’ve visited premier data centers all over this country and Quest’s facility at McClellan is second to none”
This latest expansion will soon be followed by Phase 5 and Phase 6 expansions at the McClellan facility. The Phase 5 expansion will be completed by August, adding another 20,000 square feet of capacity dedicated to both SDC co-location and Quest’s Business Resumption Center (BRC). Phase 6, currently in planning, will bring Quest customers yet another 30,000 square feet of new space.
Quest chose to locate its SDC/BRC at McClellan because the site is one of the most seismically stable locations in California and is outside the Sacramento flood zone. McClellan also offers one of the state’s most advanced fiber optic cable and redundant broadband infrastructures.
Quest’s McClellan facility houses a Network Operations Center (NOC), a large and growing amount of data center co-location space and sizable business work areas.
“I’ve visited premier data centers all over this country and Quest’s facility at McClellan is second to none," says Clayton Pippenger, president of Versabill, a Quest customer.
The McClellan site is one of nearly two dozen Quest Service Delivery Centers across the nation providing affordable, leading-edge IT capability.
“Our Service Delivery Centers incorporate an entire spectrum of IT capabilities,” notes Tim Burke, president and CEO of Quest, “including data center co-location, NOC, and BRC functions. From our Service Delivery Centers we’re able to offer a vast array of hosted and business continuity services as well as local and remote monitoring and management of customers’ systems, networks, and application environments. We provide the space where customers can securely house their equipment or can relocate operations in the event of a disaster.”
Quest’s expansion of the McClellan Service Delivery Center will provide the stable, long-term availability and scalability that customers seek.
“We find our customers appreciate having so much capability available at a Quest Service Delivery Center,” says Burke. “We’ve made it easy for them to choose precisely the IT capabilities they need. And we’ve made it straightforward to integrate existing capabilities and layer on new ones as needed with the help of our many experts. Each customer has different requirements, and Quest has the flexibility to meet them efficiently and effectively.”
