ViaWest has recently opened its latest Denver-area data center in order to meet the growing demand from companies for cloud computing.
The Denver Business Journal reports the new $208 million data center has become the company’s fifth in the Denver area. ViaWest’s 210,000-square-foot Compark Center is located just east of Centennial Airport and features 140,000 square feet of raised floor with space for future growth. The company has invested around $208 million in the construction of the center and estimates that the total investment could reach $316 million over the next seven years.
Plans to build the Compark Center were announced in October 2013 and at the time, Nancy Phillips, president and CEO of ViaWest, said: “As a Denver-based company for more than fourteen years, we are proud to expand our presence in this region to further serve our existing customers and meet the strong demand we’re seeing nationwide. Our dedication to delivering high-touch customer service and a growth path of IT capabilities continues to uniquely position us in the market. We are eager to grow our footprint with the addition of another industry-leading data center facility.”
ViaWest currently owns and manages 27 data centers in the Rocky Mountain west, Texas, Oregon and Minnesota.
“ViaWest is a key part of the Colorado technology ecosystem,” says Kristin Russell, CIO for the State of Colorado. ”We are so pleased to see ViaWest continue to grow and strengthen its much-appreciated commitment to the IT community in Colorado. Their continued expansion is a strong indicator of the growth within Colorado’s technology sector.”
