CentriLogic Expands Lenoir, North Carolina Data Center

Strategic Expansion Enables CentriLogic to Accommodate Increasing Demand From Enterprise Customers Throughout Southeast USA

LENOIR, NC--(Marketwired - Sep 18, 2014) - CentriLogic, a global provider of managed hosting, cloud computing, co-location, and advanced IT outsourcing solutions, today announces the completed expansion of its Lenoir, North Carolina data center.

The multi-million dollar expansion project occurred over the past six months and included a conversion to concurrently maintainable "2N" redundancy by doubling the site's critical power capacity; adding 100 tons of additional cooling capacity; increasing physical security using on-site biometrics and two-factor authentication; and building out a 9,000 square foot physical space expansion that includes a 5,000 square foot enterprise data hall equipped with cabinets and cages dedicated to co-location and managed services customers.

The Lenoir facility's infrastructure has been enhanced to adhere to enterprise customers' stringent security, uptime and compliance requirements. The center now contains more than 23,000 operational square feet and has achieved SSAE 16 Type II, ISO 27001, and ISO 9001 certifications.

"We acquired the Lenoir facility in 2013 to strategically evolve our footprint in the USA beyond the Western New York area. Since then, we have seen a steady increase in demand from customers throughout the Southeast region requiring the highest quality data center infrastructure," says Robert Offley, President and CEO at CentriLogic. "These facility upgrades are necessary for us to scale with our evolving customer base of companies in industries including SaaS, healthcare, ecommerce, and insurance."

"As our enterprise hosting requirements continue to grow, we are confident in CentriLogic's ability to scale with us and support our immediate and future needs from this facility," says Rodrigo Araujo, IT Director at ITM Networks. "CentriLogic's proactive investment in improving and expanding its data center infrastructure is just another example of the company's dedication to customer service."

The company also anticipates that the facility upgrades will generate additional jobs in network, operations, and facilities management positions. Since CentriLogic acquired Dacentec in 2013, the company has doubled the number of physical servers deployed at the facility, has increased its local workforce by 30%, and projects an annualized revenue growth rate of 50%.

CentriLogic owns and operates nine interconnected data centers throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, and recently achieved 5-year revenue growth of 1,217%.
