JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (March 23, 2010) – Peak 10 Inc., a managed services company with world-class data centers, announced today the completion of enhancements to the state-of-the-art facilities on its Jacksonville campus. These improvements include additional infrastructure reinforcements for major storm protection, relocation and enhancements to its Network Operations Center (NOC), upgrades to the overall physical security of the facility and renovations to the customer area.
To provide geographic diversity for its growing customer base, Peak 10 owns and operates enterprise-class data centers in ten strategic U.S. locations including Jacksonville, Tampa and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Atlanta, Ga.; Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C.; Nashville, Tenn.; Louisville, Ky.; and Richmond, Va. With a number of its key executives based in Jacksonville, Peak 10 Jacksonville remains one of the company’s most successful and vital markets.
“The recent enhancements made to our facilities will guarantee that our growing client base is further protected by the most advanced infrastructure and equipment available,” said Mike Stockwell, the vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Jacksonville. “These upgrades are especially timely as Florida begins to anticipate the start of hurricane season and local businesses recognize a need for a secure, redundant facility to store their mission-critical data. In the end, we all realize you generally get what you pay for. We continually re-invest in our Jacksonville data centers and refuse to take shortcuts that would ever put our customers at risk.”
The Peak 10 Jacksonville facility received structure-hardening enhancements in order to ensure that the data center offers the most advanced security possible and is able to withstand the threats posed by hurricanes and other natural disasters. Additionally, the NOC has undergone renovations allowing for easier access to on-site engineers. Finally, customers who are regularly on site can enjoy renovated facilities with a new customer lounge, new food and beverage centers, as well as other comfort perks.
“We will continue to invest capital and regularly upgrade our facilities and service portfolio, while remaining committed to delivering the industry-leading expertise and support on which our customers rely,” added Stockwell.
