Data center operator and cloud hosting provider Savvis announced on Tuesday it is opening two new data centers and expanding eight existing data centers to meet its growing global customer demand.
The move comes a few weeks after the launch of Savvis ClientConnect, an online business exchange for businesses to generate new revenue opportunities by connecting with other businesses located in one or more of Savvis’ data centers.
The company has opened new data centers in Hong Kong and London, which Savvis announced last month, as well as expanded eight existing Savvis data centers.
“Whether it’s empowering stock trades in the global market, pulling data from the cloud to deliver life-saving medical treatments or simply sending e-cards to friends across the world, the foundational technology that makes it all possible resides in a data center,” said Jeff Von Deylen, president of Savvis. “By expanding our footprint, we’re giving businesses additional strategic, secure locations and interconnectivity opportunities for growing their capabilities and core business offerings through infrastructure outsourcing.”
The new expansions and data center openings add approximately 85,000 square feet of new space to Savvis’ global presence.
This, in turn, brings Savvis’ total available data center space to more than 2.4 million square feet across more than 50 data centers located throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
The new data center additions include London, which was completed last month, and Hong Kong, which will be completed in November.
The data center expansions include Boston, Atlanta, London (to be completed in September), Singapore, Washington, D.C., Dallas (to be completed in July), Piscataway, New Jersey (to be completed in August) and Tampa (to be completed in October).
The company provides a range of services including cloud hosting, colocation and managed hosting services. Savvis recently introduced subscription-based hosting services for the SAP HANA database platform.
