Windstream (News - Alert) Hosted Solutions has opened a new enterprise-class Mid-Atlantic data center in McLean, Va. The newly announced facility underscores Windstream's commitment to its customer base across the nation and is well equipped to address the growing demand for cloud-based and dedicated managed services of clients.

Located in a sprawling 65,000 square feet campus, Windstream’s new data center is designed with 2N power distribution and parallel multimodule uninterruptable power supplies (UPS).

The newly unveiled facility provides companies with 24/7 access to their servers, applications and data in a secure and reliable manner.

“More than ever, organizations require the assurance that their data and infrastructure is secure, regardless of whether they are in the private or public sector,” said Kip Turco, Windstream senior vice president of data center operations. “Like all of our advanced data centers, the McLean facility is specifically designed to meet those needs and to grow with our customers' constantly changing requirements.”

Windstream Hosted Solutions boasts an impressive inventory of data centers across the nation, and all of these facilities are strategically placed to deliver world-class services to its customers.

The company announced a data center in Little Rock, Ark. earlier this year and has now unveiled this McLean, Va., facility that offers several benefits, such as a fully 2N A-side and B-side power distribution design.

The McLean, Va., data center also offers connection to multiple Windstream core POP sites via redundant OC-192 10Gbps circuits and fully redundant core network gear within the facility.

Windstream provides advanced network communications, including cloud computing and managed services, to businesses nationwide. The company was recently in the news for expanding its next-generation voice and data services into Hot Springs.
