ATLANTA– (September 8, 2017) – Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), (“INAP” or the “Company”), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure including Colocation, Network and Managed Services, and Cloud Services, today announced a large-scale expansion at its Dallas data center, in order to meet an increased demand for services. INAP’s full product suite is available at the Dallas center, including colocation, cloud and managed hosting.
“Dallas is INAP’s second largest data center metro market”, stated Corey Needles, INAP COLO’s SVP and General Manager. “We are investing in an expansion project given its high occupancy and attractive Tier 3-type attributes to meet enterprise customer requirements. This buildout of our existing facility creates a path for our sales team to keep up with the demand and momentum INAP has established in the Dallas metro market.”
Currently, the INAP Dallas data center is 75% occupied which is higher than INAP’s average occupancy rate. The buildout is designed to open a new pod, and add over 1 MW of new power to support the expansion.
“We are very excited about this strategic investment, as it demonstrates our commitment to current and prospective customers to make growth space available on demand. Our customers can plan ahead and have the certainty of speed to market to help their businesses grow with a high-performance infrastructure,” said Michael Higgins, INAP COLO’s SVP, Sales & Customer Service.
The overall Dallas area is generally considered a prime location for disaster recovery, offers lower power costs, and has high growth potential for additional space. Additionally, given its location in the middle of the U.S., Dallas is strategically positioned due to its proximity and access to both the east and west coasts. INAP’s Dallas data center and Infomart connectivity via fiber meets premium Tier 3-type data center specifications, supports up to 20 kW per cabinet, and has a proven track record of redundancy, security, and uptime.
