Windstream opens new Mid-Atlantic data center in McLean, Virginia

Dec 12, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Windstream Hosted Solutions, a provider of managed hosting solutions, has opened a new Mid-Atlantic data center in McLean, Virginia.

The new Windstream data center is 65,000 square feet with 45,000 square feet of raised floor space. The data center was designed to meet the demand for cloud-based and dedicated managed services.

Designed with 2N power distribution and parallel multi-module uninterruptable power supplies (UPS), Windstream Hosted Solutions' new data center ensures that companies have access to their servers, applications and data at all times. Whether a business chooses colocation, dedicated server, managed services, cloud computing or disaster recovery solutions, Windstream's data centers deliver the level of security, safety, redundancy, reliability, scalability and technology, the company said.

The Windstream McLean data center features a fully 2N A-side and B-side power distribution design with automated failover between electrical systems; up to 2000kVa of day 1 utility capacity scalable to 9,000kVA; connection to multiple Windstream core POP sites via redundant OC-192 10Gbps circuits with no single point of failure; fully redundant core network gear within the data center; onsite network operations center (NOC), fully staffed 24 x 7 x 365, providing facilities and network monitoring, security, technical and remote-hands support; and security controls including card access system, electronic verification by Windstream Hosted Solutions personnel, biometric identity access system and video surveillance, the company added.

"More than ever, organizations require the assurance that their data and infrastructure is secure, regardless of whether they are in the private or public sector," said Kip Turco, Windstream senior vice president of data center operations. "This is especially true for those businesses that have chosen to locate some or all of their operations in the cloud. Like all of our advanced data centers, the McLean facility is specifically designed to meet those needs and to grow with our customers' constantly changing requirements."
