PCM, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCMI) announced today that it will commence construction on a new cloud data center that is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2013. The proposed Tier III facility will be strategically located in a data center-centric development in New Albany, OH on 7.9 acres. The new facility will complement PCM’s two existing data centers and a 24/7 Integrated Operations Center (IOC) located in Atlanta, GA. This addition will expand the Company’s existing cloud infrastructure and provide geo-diversity for ‘always on’ applications.
Commenting on the upcoming opening of the planned data center, Joseph Hayek, President of PCM/SARCOM, said, “We are very excited about what this new data center means to our customers and to any company that requires 100% up time of their application/cloud environments. While cloud computing means different things to different people, companies are constantly challenged by how best to deploy their capital in an economy characterized by rapid technology change. We believe that our customers can benefit tremendously by locating their workloads in our facility or by taking advantage of our fully managed cloud environment in the Tier III facility for production or business continuity purposes.”
Expanding on Hayek’s remarks, Oren Hartman, PCM’s Executive Vice President, said, “The services we provide that leverage our data centers address the growing needs of our mid-market and enterprise customers by providing them with the ability to rapidly deploy solutions ranging from private clouds to fully managed SaaS platforms. Importantly we further provide our customers all of these services with guaranteed service level agreements from a trusted service provider with more than 25 years of IT services experience.”
