PHOENIX – The Valley is home to another data center as Expedient announced Tuesday it would open a new cloud data center in Phoenix.
Expedient, which offers customers a portfolio of universal multi-cloud services, said in a press release that the new data center will help better serve growing demand from customers in the western part of the country.
The 45,000-square-foot, 2.4-megawatt facility has the capacity for 17,000 physical servers and will serve as a ramp to the cloud and access the company’s suite of capabilities.
It will also feature redundant power and cooling infrastructure systems within the facility, the company said, and include three standby diesel fuel generators with provision for a fourth unit.
“Expedient’s investment helps meet the needs of Phoenix’s thriving and expanded business ecosystem with multi-cloud solutions,” said Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, in the release.
“We congratulate Expedient on the opening of its newest data center in Phoenix and the continued growth of the company in the region.”
Expedient helps transform enterprise IT operations through its multi-cloud solutions and managed services, including disaster recovery, security and compliance.
The data center also makes Expedient the only premier cloud service provider to offer multi-cloud security and management services from a local Arizona data center, the company said, providing the ability to provide a high-speed network with other hyperscale cloud service providers in addition to colocation services for customers in the Phoenix area.
The company’s clients include the University of Phoenix, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona and the Los Angeles Food Bank.
The data center is the 13th for Expedient and the second to open in the past month, with more to open next year and in the future.
