St. George, UT, April 20, 2010 — Tonaquint Data Center (TDC), announced it has completed its primary data center colocation space. Phase II expansion is now under way with contracts locking down an additional 2,700 square feet of data center space. Phase III construction will begin second quarter 2010 for an additional 9,500 square feet and will be available for occupancy third quarter 2010. In addition, a secondary 2 Megawatt generator has been integrated in the facility’s grid for additional backup and redundancy. A third 2 Megawatt generator is slated for third quarter 2010 operations.
In addition to the physical expansion, Tonaquint has deployed its virtual environment and hosting solutions. Matt Hamlin, CEO of the Tonaquint Data Center stated, “From SAN replication to virtual hosting, offering these types of virtual solutions provides us the ability to meet the wide array of customer needs and demands. It meshes really well with our customer’s disaster recovery and colocation environments.”
When these expansions are completed this nearly 40,000 square foot facility will have full data solutions services including Collocation, Disaster Recovery, IT Infrastructure Outsourcing, Remote Management Services, Managed Services via 3rd party providers including Level 3, 360 Network, Qwest, South Central communications, and Utah Interlinx, and many other services. Hamblin stated, “The data center will be the only tier 3 rated data facility between Salt Lake and Las Vegas.“
When the Tonaquint Business Park launched in 2002, the vision of the park was seen as the premier ‘hi-tech’ business park in the southern Utah region. Included in these objectives was the ability to bring broadband technologies and top tier data storage to hi-tech companies and institutions throughout the region. Companies needing large bandwidth, data storage, and high power density will now have a local alternative to the Salt Lake or Las Vegas markets for this type of facility.
Smaller businesses have also been able to take advantage of this facility. It is an opportunity for companies to store their back up data in a more secure location, where they can feel confident that their important information will be safe from environmental, and accidental incidents.
The Tonaquint Data Center is also considered a collocation facility where businesses requiring a high level of system reliability and security can locate, network, and interconnect to a number of global fiber optic networks. Collocation space is becoming popular because of the time and cost savings companies achieve as a result of using shared data center infrastructure.
