Expedient expands backup for Pittsburgh data centre

December 12, 2017

US-based cloud and data centre infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider Expedient has completed a $14 million expansion of its Nova Place data centre in Pittsburgh.


Expedient said “several thousand additional square feet have been dedicated to fully redundant switchgear, UPS systems and emergency generators with up to 2MW of demand and fuel capacity”.


The expansion includes “new raised floor computer room space and cloud capacity for IaaS and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solutions”.


In addition, the expanded facility, which is to be formally opened in January 2018, is powered by a “new dedicated and redundant commercial utility power service”.


The Nova Place facility (pictured) is one of two Expedient data centres in the Pittsburgh region.

Last month, Expedient announced the $4.5m upgrade and completion of its data centre in Carmel, Indianapolis— including the replacement of two flywheel UPS systems.


The company said all its data centres are connected through Layer 2 network access and a minimum 10Gbps private fibre backbone, creating a powerful distributed presence for critical IT infrastructure services.
