(The Hosting News) – Managed hosting provider Windstream detailed its new 30 thousand square foot data center in Little Rock, Arkansas on Thursday. The facility itself features redundant HVAC facilities and accounts for cloud services including hybrid, public and private.
The company stated the data center was “designed to meet the growing demand for cloud-based and dedicated managed services, underscoring Windstream’s commitment to its customer base nationwide.”
“As more companies realize the benefits of cloud-based services, the demand for data centers that provide enhanced offerings and greater security has skyrocketed,” commented Windstream senior VP of data center operations Kip Turco in a press release regarding the matter.
Turco also emphasized that his company had worked hard to make sure the data center provided services that were both reliable and secure.
Meanwhile, an official grand opening is set for next Thursday and will feature a number of high profile guests including Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola and Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe.
The hosting provider already has a high number of data centers in U.S. states including Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Texas and Georgia. Aside from its colocation and cloud services, the company provides a number of solutions pertaining to areas such as networking, VoIP, PC protection, Ethernet and more.
In October of last year, Windstream announced that it had expanded its Raleigh, North Carolina data center to include an additional 10 thousand square feet of space. To celebrate the occasion, the hosting provider teamed up with U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach.
