Last week, Expedient announced that it is initiating an expansion project at one of its Pittsburgh data centers which is located at Nova Place. Expedient is a cloud computing and data center IaaS provider. The project is scheduled to begin towards the end of 2016 and it will add new data center space to its existing space.
On completion, the facility will double the power, environmental and raised floor computer room capacity at the location, while also creating a larger shared lobby, operations support center (OSC) and client convenience area.
The new project costs about $14 million and is said to create conditioned space for more than 385 additional co-location cabinets to host both physical and virtual cloud computing platforms. The total available raised floor computer room space will grow to 28,000 square feet.
Shawn McGorry, President of Expedient said :
Our team is excited about the new opportunities that expansion represents and we’ve enjoyed a lot of it for the past several years including our two most recent builds in Columbus, OH and Memphis, TN last year.
The expansion and renovation is scheduled to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2017. The company says that the existing data center facility will remain continuously operational throughout the duration of the project.
