PHOENIX — The Valley is home to another data center as Expedient announced Tuesday it would be opening a new cloud data center in Phoenix.

Expedient, which offers customers a portfolio of universal multi-cloud services, said in a press release the new data center helps better serve increasing client demand in the western part of the country.

The 45,000 square-foot, 2.4-megawatt facility has the capacity for 17,000 physical servers and will serve as an onramp to the cloud and provide access to the company’s suite of capabilities.

It will also have redundant power and cooling infrastructure systems available within the facility, the company said, and include three-standby, diesel fuel, engine-generators with provision for a fourth unit.

“Expedient’s investment helps meet the needs of greater Phoenix’s thriving and expansive business ecosystem with multi-cloud solutions,” Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, said in the release.

“We congratulate Expedient on the opening of its latest data center in Phoenix and the company’s continued growth within the region.”

Expedient helps transform the IT operations of companies through its multi-cloud solutions and managed services, including disaster recovery, security and compliance.

The data center also makes Expedient the only premier cloud service provider to offer multi-cloud security and management services from a local data center in Arizona, the company said, allowing the ability to provide high-speed network connectively to other hyperscale cloud service providers in addition to colocation services for clients in the Phoenix area.

Customers of the company include the University of Phoenix, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona and Los Angeles Food Bank.

The data center is the 13th for Expedient and the second opened in the last month, with more planned to be opened through next year and in the future.
