Peak 10 Inc.has announced the opening of its newest data center. The 14,000-sq-ft facility completes the first phase of Peak 10’s plans for a 64,000-sq-ft technology campus in Charlotte, NC. It is located in the David Taylor Corporate Center in the University Research Park area near the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. This is the company’s fourth data center in Charlotte. It also has 22 data centers in nine other cities throughout the United States.
“We are excited to have our fourth Charlotte data center open for business,” said Pat O’Brien, vice president and general manager of Peak 10’s Charlotte market. “This facility enables businesses locating and growing in Charlotte to house and manage their important IT assets with the peace of mind that we’ll be there to keep their business up and running.”
The Charlotte technology campus brings Peak 10’s entire Charlotte footprint to more than 129,000 sq ft. Subsequent expansion phases will be constructed as the customer base grows. Upon build out, Peak 10 will have invested approximately $50 million in infrastructure within the Charlotte market.
