Expedient, a cloud computing and data center infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider, announced an investment of $4.5 million to expand and upgrade its data center in Carmel, Indiana by November 2017.
This is Expedient’s third expansion and upgrade of the Indianapolis data center since September 2013. The three projects combined represent a total investment of $14.5 million.
The expansion will add 3,500 square feet of computer room space, increasing raised floor space to 26,000 square feet, in addition to 12,500 square feet of electrical/mechanical rooms and more than 15,000 square feet of office, common area, and convenience spaces.
Upgrades include replacement of two uninterruptable power supply (UPS) systems, the installation of new computer room air conditioning units (CRAC) and power distribution units (PDU), and design improvements and additional cooling capacity for the HVAC system, resulting in a higher level of redundancy for Expedient customers.
“Our investment in the Indianapolis data center demonstrates our absolute commitment to supporting our customers’ evolving needs, and further solidifies our position as an industry-leading regional provider of IaaS solutions,” said Jim Kothe, regional vice president for Expedient.
