On the heels of strategic leadership shifts and appointments, Involta announces the expansion of its Independence data centre in the sought-after Cleveland market. The industry-leading hybrid IT, cloud computing and data centre services company has added 14,000 square feet of space and an additional 1MW of much-needed power to the facility to meet the increasing demand for enterprise colocation in Ohio’s northeast corridor.
Involta introduced its Independence data centre in 2017. Backed by capital from the Carlyle Group, the expanded facility now spans 40,000 square feet and brings Involta’s total capacity across Ohio to 10MW. As a hybrid IT provider, customers of the facility will also be able to leverage Involta’s advanced portfolio of cloud-based solutions and cybersecurity services to empower secure, compliant Digital Transformation.
Other expansion highlights:
- Leverages efficient Datasox design in the cold aisles to deliver supply air
- Provides dedicated backup generators for ultra-redundancy
- Allows delivery of utility and network services from multiple points in the facility Demarc and Headend rooms for added resilience
To mark the expansion of its Independence data centre, Involta hosted an all-star celebration on August 23, featuring keynote speaker Nic Barlage, CEO of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Rock Entertainment Group and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Additional speakers included Involta’s newly appointed President and CEO, James (Jim) Buie, Bruce Lehrman, Founder and Vice Chairman of Involta’s Board of Directors and Ken Kremer, Founder and Chief Technical Officer of Involta.
