Greenville, SC: May 16, 2012 – Green Cloud Technologies, a Cloud technology solutions provider headquartered in Greenville, SC, has announced the deployment of its second data center facility, which will be located in Nashville, Tennessee. This site will house a fully redundant mirrored location of its facility in Greenville, SC. Nashville is expected to come online during third quarter 2012.
The launch of this data center provides an increased level of geo-diversity for Green Cloud, with regional power grids and fiber trunking routes that are independent of those in place in South Carolina. Such separation further minimizes potential impacts of localized catastrophic events. Fiber-based connections will tie the two centers together.
“The planning and design of our FlexPod infrastructure – a highly scalable architecture built around the industry-leading platforms of Cisco, NetApp, and VMware – provides for a reliable, redundant environment built to address incremental failures and safeguards against catastrophic events,” explains Keith Coker, chief technology officer of Green Cloud. “The deployment of a second world-class site that is a mirror of our facility in Greenville enables us to respond rapidly in the face of a devastating event and to continue to offer our customers the highest levels of confidence in the security and accessibility of their data.”
Green Cloud has partnered with Peak 10, whose state-of-the-art facilities provide efficient, secure and redundant services. Facility features include SAS70/SSAE compliance, redundant access, multiple generators and UPS systems, fire suppression, controlled temperature and humidity systems, advanced security, and 24x7x365 monitoring.
The location of the site in Tennessee positions the company for westward expansion and rapid growth.
