Windstream leases Compass Datacenters' data center facility
Dec 03, 2012 (Menafn - TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --Compass Datacenters has completed a lease agreement with Windstream Hosted Solutions WIN for a data centre facility in Franklin, Tennessee.
Through this long-term lease agreement, Compass Datacenters will construct a 22,000 square foot standalone data centre facility that will expand Windstream's IT infrastructure to meet growing demand for its enterprise-class cloud computing and managed services solutions. The facility will be designed to be SSAE-16 compliant, and is scheduled to open in 2013. It will be located on a data centre campus that Compass is developing on land recently acquired in suburban Nashville. The data centre facility will feature 2500kVA of utility capacity, and full redundancy throughout, to ensure maximum uptime as well as a fully staffed, around-the-clock Network Operations Center and connectivity to multiple Windstream core POP sites via redundant OC-192 10Gbps circuits. The centre will is also designed to enable rapid expansion of up to five times its current capacity.
The Windstream-branded facility will be built using Compass' Truly Modular Architecture, which makes it possible for companies to locate their data centers where they need them--at an affordable cost--rather than where their provider happens to have a facility.
Compass Datacenters builds and operates standalone data centers using its patent-pending Truly Modular Architecture, which provide customers with dedicated wholesale solutions where they need them. For more information, visit www.compassdatacenters.com.
