(The Hosting News) – Tech giant Dell recently unveiled its latest data center in Quincy, Washington.
Offering redundant network connectivity, the facility is set to provide cloud solutions to the company’s North American customers. In addition to that, IT outsourcing will also be provided for.
Discussing the matter in a press release, Dell Services executive director Partrick Mooney said his company was “proud to be listed as one of the top Green IT companies in the world.”
“Our efforts to optimize the Power Usage Effectiveness at our Western Technology Center appeals to customers who want to consider the impact to the environment when configuring their IT solutions and to our environmentally conscious team members who participate in green initiatives across Dell,” Mooney continued.
Specific services of the facility include data storage, disaster recovery, private and hybrid clouds, enhanced security and management.
According to a report from Data Center Knowledge, the data center itself encompasses 40 thousand square feet which is just part of the project’s first phase. Dell says the facility offers “backup-up emergency power generation” and relies on an “uninterruptable power supply.”
The data center’s opening follows an April 2011 announcement by the company in which Dell revealed that it would be investing $1 billion towards tech solutions.
Included among the company’s plans was the construction of twenty two Global Solution Centers throughout 2011 and 2012. At the time, Dell advertised the initiative as offering virtualization and data management at affordable rates.
Washington State has proven a popular market for the construction of data centers by top companies. Among others forming a data center presence in the Quincy area are tech giants Microsoft and Yahoo!.
In the past, the state has offered data center tax incentives in hopes of attracting businesses to the area. The last initiative passed by the state’s legislature expired at the end of June 2011.
