Expedient, a cloud computing and data center infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider, has announced the opening of a new cloud data center in Phoenix.
The data center will allow Expedient to meet increased demand for the company’s services in the Western United States.
The Pittsburgh-based company focuses on helping companies transform their IT operations by providing cloud-based services, like disaster recovery, security and compliance, among others. Customers in this region include University of Phoenix and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona.
“This is all part of our Cloud Different approach, which enables clients to migrate to the cloud on their terms,” said Bryan Smith, Senior VP and Chief Strategy Officer at Expedient.
Expedient boasts that its “Cloud Different” approach uniquely provides an “on-ramp to the cloud, supporting the optimization and delivery of all applications.” The company is designed to help new customers easily transition to the cloud by providing individualized solutions curated for each company.
The new Phoenix data center is 45,000 square feet and 2.4 megawatts, and has the capacity to house more than 17,000 servers. This will be the second data center the company has opened in the last 30 days, and the company’s 13th facility in the U.S. Expedient plans to open several more centers in 2022.
“We’re setting ourselves apart by offering a complete portfolio of services that are designed to get workloads and applications running on the right infrastructure from the start,” Smith said. “This latest data center in Phoenix is just the beginning of our expansion plans.”
Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, expressed enthusiasm for Expedient’s new data center, suggesting that this development supports the idea that Phoenix is becoming better and better for business.
“Expedient’s investment helps meet the needs of Greater Phoenix’s thriving and expansive business ecosystem with multi-cloud solutions,” Camacho said. “We congratulate Expedient on the opening of its latest data center in Phoenix and the company’s continued growth within the region.”
