Drew Leonard: CenturyLink Expands Data Center Footprint to Meet Client Demand - top government contractors - best government contracting event

centurylink_logojpgCenturyLink has embarked on multiple data center expansion projects over the past six months in an effort to address an increasing consumer demand for physical and virtual infrastructure services.

The company said Wednesday its global data center capacity has increased by 10.8 megawatts to more than 185 megawatts.

“Many of our customers are turning to CenturyLink as their strategic partner as they move toward hybrid information technology environments to help manage their legacy and cloud workloads,” said Drew Leonard, CenturyLink vice president of colocation product management.

“This allows them to focus on objectives tied to business goals instead of worrying about IT infrastructure operations,” Leonard added.

The company grew operations in Boston, London, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Phoenix, Seattle and Washington.

It also extended a public cloud offering to Asia-Pacific as well as partnered with another provider to meet the data center requirements of clients in Australia.

CenturyLink also opened a Washington-based hydro-powered facility and installed a Bloom fuel cell technology at an Irvine, California, facility as part of green energy initiatives.

The company also seeks to reduce its carbon footprint by participating in carbon disclosure and climate change programs.
