Peak 10, Inc. is growing its Midwest footprint with the upcoming expansion of its data center operations at 5307 Muhlhauser Road in West Chester, OH, to support the region’s burgeoning business community. The 20,000-sq-ft greenfield expansion will feature 13,000 sq ft of raised floor data center space and its own critical uptime infrastructure such as power, HVAC, generators, etc. The expansion comes on the heels of new federal data ranking the 15-county area the fastest growing in the region, representing $121.4 billion in annual revenue according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.

“The recent influx of Big Data, integration of the Internet of Things (IoT), and outsourcing increases the need for additional IT services such as data storage and security,” said PJ Kiggins, vice president and general manager for Peak 10’s Cincinnati operations. “The construction of our second data center facility here allows us to deliver our enterprise-level data center services and cloud so customers can continue to grow without the concern of data security or need to make investments for infrastructure regulatory compliance requirements.”

Like all Peak 10 facilities, the company’s new Cincinnati data center will be engineered to help customers meet regulatory compliance for SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3, HIPAA, PCI DSS, FISMA and ITAR regulations and boasts multiple levels of security, uninterruptible power, HVAC systems, fire suppression and around-the-clock monitoring and management and featuring concurrently maintainable power infrastructure.

The new data center will be capable of serving hundreds more customers throughout Ohio and northern Indiana and will bring the company’s total Cincinnati presence to more than 44,000 sq ft. Cincinnati-based companies like ProMach and Gorilla Glue rely on Peak 10’s highly reliable solutions to maintain their production environments — the backbone of their business operations.

“Our consistent growth in all of our markets is the result of mid-market businesses in need of a true IT partner that can offer consultative expertise to support their long-term growth goals,” said David Jones, chairman and CEO of Peak 10. “While we evaluate other markets and opportunities we continue to realize a consistent, need for colocation and hybrid cloud solutions in our existing markets like Cincinnati.”

Headquartered in Charlotte, NC, Peak 10 operates 27 data centers in key U.S. markets and serves a diverse range of customers in the U.S. and abroad. The company’s hands-on approach to IT has recently been recognized with a best in class Net Promoter (NPS) score of 67.4 – the highest ever in the company’s history of tracking this metric and indicator of its focus on the customer experience.
