Big news from Involta! The company recently completed major expansions at its Cleveland and Pittsburgh data center locations. Involta marked the expansions with a week-long Edge to Innovation virtual celebration featuring customers, partners, and keynote speaker Dean Nelson, Chairman and Founder of Infrastructure Masons.
The strategic expansions were driven by increased customer demand for edge data centers and critical infrastructure in the tech, manufacturing, healthcare and transportation sectors.
Involta’s Pittsburgh data center expansion was driven by a global high-tech company looking to leverage a world-class data center for increased capabilities and reliability. Involta added 120 cabinets, bringing the total to 180 cabinets and 500kW of new power availability at the 39,000+ square-foot, high-performance data center.
The company noted an uptick in demand in healthcare with anchor tenant MetroHealth was the key factor in adding 144 cabinets and 500kW in new power availability at Involta’s 23,000+ square foot Cleveland data center.
“At Involta, we are increasing our critical power and infrastructure investments to stay in front of client demand in key markets,” said Bruce Lehrman, CEO, Involta. “The rapid increase in data requirements from healthcare clients such as MetroHealth significantly expedited our need to expand our capacity and offerings to serve our clients better. You will continue to see Involta expand with new and improved offerings around Edge, enhanced security and hybrid cloud as we strive to partner with our customers to support nextgen business models.”
More than 7,000 hours were dedicated to HVAC, electrical and general construction in each location amid the pandemic. Keeping sustainability at the forefront, Involta also leveraged an innovative and sustainable new battery technology – lithium-ion – which is used on UPS units instead of Lead Acid Batteries.
