Flexential Boosts Its Portland Data Center

Flexential, provider of hybrid IT data center solutions, has completed the $32-million expansion of its data center outside Portland, Oregon.

The 115,000-square foot expansion brings the data center to 240,000 square feet and boasts international connectivity.

The Portland data center houses the U.S. cable landing station for the Hawaiki submarine cable, which delivers the first carrier-neutral, low-latency connection between the continental U.S., Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand and American Samoa.

The New Cross Pacific (NCP) subsea cable also lands in Brookwood, delivering up to 80 Terabits per second of capacity to reduce latency between the U.S. and the Asian markets of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China. Both cables serve as an extension of Flexential’s FlexAnywhere network fabric, which provides connectivity from the data center and cloud to the edge.

“We are extremely proud of this data center, our largest in Oregon. It benefits from a holistic design approach, with all systems and components contributing to maximum efficiency, allowing us to pass along cost savings to our customers,” said Chris Downie, CEO at Flexential. “The efficient design, coupled with direct, low-latency connections that span the U.S. and provide access to Asia-Pacific, make it an ideal location for companies seeking a cost-efficient IT infrastructure solution complete with capacity to expand and a global connectivity reach.”
