Expedient Data Centers has announced the opening of its newest facility in Dublin, Ohio. The project represents the first phase of a new 60,000-square-foot data center.

The addition of the new location follows Expedient’s recent expansion at its Upper Arlington Data Center, just a few miles east of the new building. The data center in Dublin will ultimately triple the company’s footprint in the Columbus market. Along with Expedient’s other 2015 expansions, this new facility will bring the firm’s capacity to more than 300,000 square feet in 11 locations.

Phase one of the new Dublin Data Center features 15,000 square feet of 36-foot raised floor space, dual power feeds, four 800 kW uninterruptible power supplies, 570 tons of cooling, four Caterpillar diesel generators with 6MW of total capacity and completely diverse telecom entrances. The facility has been designed for customers who require the highest level of security. The project, which will also have 24x7x365 local technical support, will meet SSAE16, SOC I and SOC II audit requirements and will support customer’s needs to meet PCI-DSS, HIPAA and other industry/regulatory standards.

Expedient is a provider of colocation, cloud computing, managed hosting and internet related connectivity services. The company currently serves more than 1,500 business customers in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Columbus, Baltimore, Boston, Memphis and Indianapolis.
