Data Center Services Provider US Signal Starts Construction of Newest Data Center
November 30, 2018
Data center services provider US Signal has started construction of its newest data center. US Signal, which has headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States, was established in 2000. The company offers a broad range of HIPAA compliant data center services including cloud hosting, colocation, data protection, and disaster recovery solutions alongside customer-focused managed services. Each of its offerings are available through its own fiber network. US Signal’s latest center will be located in Detroit, Michigan, United States.
US Signal’s newest data center facility will be located in Van Buren Township in the Greater Detroit area. It will come online towards the end of 2019. The center is intended to address increasing demand for the “cloud-first, hybrid and off-premises data center strategies” and the related growth in colocation space. The center will increase US Signal’s data center capacity by 100,000 square feet of additional data center space.
The new facility will be US Signal’s fourth and will sit alongside data centers owned and operated in Grand Rapids and Southfield. The company’s SSAE 16-certified data centers are “strategically located in business-friendly locations throughout America’s heartland” in locations with separate power grids to “minimize the effects of natural disasters” and in areas noted for cooler weather.
“As organizations develop hybrid cloud strategies in Michigan and across the United States, they often seek to alleviate the burden of owning and operating their own data center,” explained US Signal’s Executive Vice President of Operations, Dave Wisz. “The new greater Detroit data center will increase US Signal’s data center availability and enable organizations throughout the region to take advantage of both geographic diversity and lower latency because of the adjacency between their office and their colocated equipment and cloud hosting services.”
