TekLinks has added more than 3,000 square feet of capacity to our 200 Summit Data Center in Birmingham, Alabama. That brings the total capacity to 6,500 square feet, making the data center one of the largest in all of Alabama!

“This multi-million-dollar expansion allows TekLinks to accommodate our growing customer base’s needs by providing them more space in our state-of-the-art facility as well as allowing us to grow our cloud services and offerings,” says Terry Miller, TekLinks VP Data Center Architecture.

TekLinks currently provides colocation, cloud, hosting, and disaster recovery services to thousands of business of all sizes – from large financial institutions and government agencies to smaller medical practices and retail shops. The company has data center space in six locations across Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi. Customers choose TekLinks for colocation due to the power and cooling efficiency, redundancy and reliability the facility provides.

The expanded Birmingham data center is able to hold more than 150 equipment racks and currently has 1 MW of redundant generator capacity, which will be expanded to 2 MW as capacity grows.  TekLinks partnered with Emerson Network Power, Generac, and Marathon Electric to install power and cooling systems that create a modular, redundant and efficient environment for their customers.

“We worked with our vendors to provide best-in-breed products to bring our customers the technology and availability requirements that they have come to expect out of our data centers,” says Miller.  ExpandedDataCenter_20161027_Pajor_026.jpg
