announces

MILILANI, Hawaii – This week, Servpac Inc. announced the official opening of their MTP Data Center and has begun scheduling tours for interested parties. The state-of-the-art facility opens to meet growing demand for a reliable local data solution in a time plagued by uncertainty and enhanced risk exposure for Hawaii businesses.

The short and long term impacts of COVID-19 continue to stay top of mind for Hawaii’s executives and business owners, causing decision makers to not only look for cost saving solutions, but also strategic initiatives to ensure business resiliency.


While some areas of business look to downsize, technology is one key area where leaders are looking to scale up in order to facilitate more remote access, data security, team collaboration and business continuity. As the only Tier 4 data center in Hawaii, MTP offers customers the most advanced power and cooling technology to safeguard their data from system outages and loss of mission critical information. With access to Hawaii’s largest carriers including Servpac’s own dedicated fiber network, customers are able to access their data safely and efficiently.

The completion of MTP also enables local businesses to save on cost up to 50% by reducing the risk of operational downtime and unpredictable hardware maintenance that could surge above $500k annually. In addition, businesses can experience significant savings by outsourcing their infrastructure maintenance, energy consumption, leased space and security.

“In the last 20 years, there have been no major investments for data centers in Hawaii,” says Richard Zheng, President and Founder of Servpac. He goes on to say, “Now more than ever, businesses need a reliable, local digital infrastructure to build their capacity and address their data needs. We’ve listened by expanding Hawaii’s digital landscape with a best in class data center for customers in their own backyard.”

The 30,000 sq. ft. facility in Mililani Tech Park is built 10 miles inland and 850 feet above sea level. The data center’s Central Oahu location makes it the most naturally secure environment for continued operations, especially during the Pacific hurricane season. MTP also features Disaster Recovery office space, including 100 hot desks and 20 private suites.

DALLAS, TX – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announces today that it has reached the 100 percent renewable energy mark at one of its Minneapolis, MN, data centers, MSP2. The milestone was reached by entering into an agreement with utility provider Dakota Electric Association to purchase 100% renewable energy to meet all of MSP2’s 6MW of critical IT load for the next five years. The renewable power is being provided through Dakota Electric’s Wellspring program, which will procure the power from clean wind sources provided by Great River Energy.

DataBank had already begun preparing to offset a majority of MSP2’s power requirements when it was approached by its largest customer in the data center, a F1000 enterprise software company. As part of its own CSR initiative, the customer had the goal of reducing its environmental impact across the company, and asked DataBank if it was possible to use renewable sources for all its power consumption in MSP2. DataBank then made the decision to purchase enough green power from Dakota Electric to cover 100% of MSP2’s needs. Now that customer, and all other MSP2 customers, will be powered by 100% renewable wind energy.


For DataBank, this represents the third such milestone – as both of its IND1 and IND2 data centers in Indianapolis are powered by 100% renewable energy sources – and fits into DataBank’s larger commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and reducing environmental impact across its facilities.

Last year, U.S. based data centers used more than 90 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, representing up to three percent of all U.S. electricity consumed, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. The collaboration between DataBank and Dakota Electric reduces the carbon footprint of a significant data center in the Minneapolis market.

“Green energy and sustainability are critical aspects of DataBank’s Data Center Evolved™ strategy,” states Kevin Ooley, DataBank’s President and CFO. “This milestone reached at our Minneapolis data center is a major step toward enhanced energy efficiency across DataBank’s portfolio and a further example of how we enhance the data center experience for our customers.”

“Data centers need tremendous amounts of reliable and cost-effective electricity to power their servers, storage equipment, back-ups and power cooling infrastructure,” said Greg Miller, Dakota Electric’s president and CEO. “We’re excited to have DataBank in our Wellspring program and look forward to providing them with 100% renewable energy to meet their green initiative goals.”

JACKSONVILLE, FL – EdgePresence, an owner and operator of multi-tenant, edge computing points-of-presence (PoPs), providing space, power, bandwidth, and interconnection, announces today the expansion of its newest Point of Presence with the deployment of a new edge data center in Statesboro, Ga.

Strategically located, featuring SOC II certification and turnkey infrastructure, this will be the first multi-tenant data center available in Statesboro, opening up a variety of different opportunities for local businesses as well as national companies operating in the region. In relation to edge computing, this will enable applications that require lower latency as well as local cloud and data offloading. For traditional colocation, it will enable local and national companies to utilize a local data center as opposed to regional data centers that are hundreds of miles away, saving both time and money.


“Statesboro has routinely placed in the top three of America’s Best Communities national competition and is heralded as one of Georgia’s nine live, work, and play cities. Opening one of our edge data centers here aligns well with our mission to bring micro data centers and network access to the customers that are closest to that user equipment’s access point,” states Doug Recker, Founder and President of EdgePresence. “Additionally, its proximity to industries such as commerce, education, manufacturing, healthcare and technology makes it ideal for companies offering hosted managed services, e-commerce, industrial IoT, telemedicine, e-learning and more, along with next generation applications that need super-low latencies and short network routes.”

EdgePresence also recently announced its status as one of the top 10 finalists for the “Edge Startup of the Year Award,” part of Edge Computing World’s 2020 Startup of the Year Competition. The award program, which will take place virtually on October 12-13th, recognizes the best startups in edge computing and aims to highlight the quality and breadth of emerging companies in the vibrant edge computing space.
