Time Warner Cable Begins Construction On $85 Million Expansion Of National Data Center West In Colorado

Stocks in this article: TWC

Time Warner Cable (TWC) today broke ground in Centennial, Colorado to begin construction on the expansion of National Data Center West, one of two centers of its kind for the company. The $85 million Data Center expansion will support the equipment necessary to deliver digital video and IP based services for Time Warner Cable’s core residential and business products.

“Every day we serve millions of customers across 29 states from Hawaii to Maine, and expansion of National Data Center West reaffirms our commitment to deliver an expanding array of products, services and content to our customers anywhere, any time and on any device,” says Mike LaJoie, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Time Warner Cable.

Time Warner Cable opened National Data Center East in Charlotte, NC late last year, and National Data Center West serves a nearly identical function to ensure Time Warner Cable services are always available nationwide. Construction on the additional building for National Data Center West will continue through late 2014, with the new facility scheduled to go online in January 2015. Including upgrades that have been made at the facility since 2011, investment in the entire project will top $141 million once complete.

By expanding National Data Center West, the facility in Centennial will add 75% more capacity, matching its capabilities to National Data Center East. Time Warner Cable will gain greater flexibility to add new digital products, faster speed to deploy digital products and services, and consistency with delivery and the customer experience.

A few key functions of both Data Centers include hosting the applications that support approximately 70 million residential emails sent per day, managing the billing records of more than 15 million customers and supporting backend applications delivered to Time Warner Cable employees. The centers also support core residential and commercial products and services including WiFi, High Speed Data, Voice, TV services on smart phones, and Time Warner Cable’s IntelligentHome home management offering.
