BIRMINGHAM, AL 04/14/2011 – TekLinks, a regional I.T. services provider headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, announced last week their third data center is officially open.  This state of the art facility will triple their data center space in the Birmingham area.  TekLinks already owns and operates one facility in Birmingham and one in Hattiesburg, MS.  The new facility is located at 200 Summit Parkway and was built utilizing some of the most current green approaches to data centers.  The building is over 20,000 square feet with over half of the building dedicated for data center space with room for expansion.

“In the past few years, we have seen unprecedented demand for data center space, and this facility will allow us to continue to meet the needs of our clients,” says Don Monistere, Vice President of Sales at TekLinks.  This data center, located at 200 Summit Parkway in Homewood, will not only provide data center for clients, but will allow TekLinks to increase its offerings around managed services and continue to be an industry leader in cloud computing.  “Cloud computing has, in the past 12 months, moved from something that had a lot of hype around it to something that has become an integral part of the customer’s IT strategy.  This new facility will allow us to continue to provide cloud-based services, including public, private, and hybrid clouds, in a high density computing environment.  This facility was designed with that approach in mind,” says David Powell, Vice President of Managed Services and frequent speaker on the cloud.  David continues, “TekLinks has taken a leadership position in the cloud services market.  In December, we were ranked 4thin one report, ranking among companies like Google, Microsoft and Amazon.  That is a real testament to the vision of TekLinks’ leadership and to the technical expertise of the staff that we have running our environment.”

The new data center was designed to support the high density equipment that powers public and private Cloud systems [such as TekCloud] and engineered with multiple levels of security, uninterruptible power, HVAC systems, fire suppression and around-the-clock monitoring and management. It is interconnected with TekLinks’ private network, providing customers with the advantage of highly available Internet access and the ability to leverage the other data centers when implementing disaster recovery solutions.  TekLinks made a significant financial commitment to ensure that this center was efficiently designed, fully redundant and scalable for expected future growth.

TekLinks managed services and cloud services improve performance and reliability, lower costs, and maximize internal resources for customers while keeping their valuable technology assets close to the business.  As a managed services leader, TekLinks offers a wide range of technology offerings including virtualization, managed hosting, and cloud based services in a cost-efficient and reliable platform for its 201 Summit Parkway, Birmingham, AL 35209         Phone: 205.314.6600         Fax: 205.940.9067customers.  Monistere concludes, “We are excited to have this next generation facility complete.  We began this project due to high customer demand from our enterprise and mid-enterprise customers across our geographic footprint.  This facility will allow us to host continue serving the needs of our current and future customers and is a key component of our continued growth strategy.”
