DSA Encore and Dennis Eckersley Celebrate Boston’s Newest SAS 70 Type II Data Center
Charlestown, MA (PRWEB) June 14, 2011—DSA Encore is pleased to announce client Windstream Hosted Solutions’ grand opening of a premier SAS 70 Type II compliant data center in Charlestown, MA. Tonight’s ribbon-cutting gala will feature baseball Hall of Fame legend Dennis Eckersley.
DSA Encore designed, built and equipped Windstream’s 10,000-ft2 concurrently maintainable addition to its Charlestown data center—bringing the facility’s total raised floor capacity to 25,000 ft2. The data center, now considered one of the more advanced managed hosting and colocation facilities in the greater Boston area, now has total critical power capacity of 2 MW.
“Windstream’s customers demand 100% reliability from their managed hosting provider, which is why Windstream came to us,” says Steve Friedman, CEO and Managing Director of DSA Encore. “Leveraging our unique industry position as a true end-to-end solutions provider, we delivered a state-of-the-art data center to Windstream with the level of unsurpassed reliability that all of our clients have come to expect.”
In keeping with its 30-year reputation for redundancy, reliability and performance, DSA Encore equipped the addition to the Charlestown data center with a 3,000-kVA/13.8-volt outdoor substation and 4000-amp/480-volt secondary switch, along with two 2.0 megawatt standby generators with 6000-amp parallel switchgear.
Moreover, in designing an innovative compressorized packaged rooftop cooling system with air-side economizers and controls to optimize system operation, DSA Encore eliminated the need for any computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units in the data hall—ensuring energy efficiency for Windstream.
“With the opening of its showcase Charlestown facility, Windstream sets a new standard in redundant, reliable uptime for businesses seeking high-performance managed hosting solutions,” says Friedman. “DSA Encore applauds Windstream’s commitment to exceeding customer demands, and we congratulate the opening of the firm’s premier Tier II data center. In addition, we are delighted to join baseball great Dennis Eckersley in making Windstream’s grand opening gala a memorable event. It’s been our great pleasure to work with the Windstream team, and we look forward to ‘hitting more home runs’ with Windstream as their business grows.”
Windstream’s grand opening celebration kicks off Tuesday, 6/14, at 4 PM at the new Charlestown facility. The ribbon-cutting ceremony with Dennis Eckersley will take place promptly at 4:30 PM. Attendance at the event is by invitation only.
