Venyu has announced that its new data center, which will be located in Baton Rouge, LA, will be a 15,000-sq-ft facility that will help the company meet expanding customer demand for business continuity, data protection, and disaster recovery services. 

Venyu’s new data center will feature redundant power distribution, climate control, and fire suppression technologies. As with Venyu’s other data centers, the company’s new facility is designed to guarantee the highest levels of security, uptime, connectivity, and redundancy. 

“Protecting our customer’s data and ensuring its availability is our only business. That’s why we place such an emphasis on the infrastructure that store, protect, and power these critical customer resources,” said Scott Thompson, CEO of Venyu. “As customers require more compute resources, storage and power, the complexity and capacity requirements of our facilities increase — we continue to address these needs by expanding to stay ahead of demand.”

Building upon the company’s original facility, the expansion site provides significant upgrades to both security and management — including biometric access and dual authentication at all entrances. Venyu is utilizing innovative infrastructure design that includes new power and generator systems, hot/cold air aisle containment and management, an expanded network and systems infrastructure and concurrent maintenance accessibility to all critical infrastructure components.

“We’ve called Louisiana home for 25 years. Given our success in this region, it only makes sense that this location would continue to play an integral role as we enter our next stage of growth,” said Thompson.

From its two data centers in Louisiana, Venyu serves more than 1,200 customers across industries ranging from government, professional sports and insurance to healthcare and non-profits. Providing a wide range of cloud and data center services, Venyu data centers offer the highest levels of redundancies and reliability.

The newly expanded facility is expected to open April 2014.
