Cloud firm Expedient has open a cloud data centre in Phoenix, Arizona, in response to a growing usage of digital services in the western United States.

The facility has 45,000 sq ft of floor space and 2.4MW of IT load, the AMP Capital-owned operator said.

The centre is the company’s 13th in the US as it plans more sites to be opened through 2022 and beyond.

Bryan Smith, senior VP and chief strategy officer at Expedient, said: “We are continuing to build out new data centre locations in under-serviced markets to meet growing customer demand.

“This is all part of our Cloud Different approach, which enables clients to migrate to the cloud on their terms. This latest data centre in Phoenix is just the beginning of our expansion plans.”

Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, said: “Expedient’s investment helps meet the needs of Greater Phoenix’s thriving and expansive business ecosystem with multi-cloud solutions.

“We congratulate Expedient on the opening of its latest data centre in Phoenix and the company’s continued growth within the region.”

Expedient last opened a data in October, when it cut the ribbon of a 28,500 sq ft, 1.2MW facility in the City of Franklin, Wisconsin, located in Milwaukee County. The building was a former Harley-Davidson hub owned by NTT.

Expedient’s data centre footprint includes locations in Arizona, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Colorado, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin.
