Lifeline Data Centers Selects Ciena

Lifeline Data Centers, an Indianapolis-based provider of strategic data center outsourcing facilities and services, has deployed Ciena's CN 4200 FlexSelect Advanced Services Platform to provide high-performance, low-latency connectivity over dark fiber between its existing data center in downtown Indianapolis and its new 460,000-square foot state-of-the-art data center facility twelve miles outside of the city.

Lifeline serves customers in the healthcare, retail, government, biotech and other industries.

As part of a project to dramatically expand its capacity, Lifeline is transforming the former Eastgate Mall -- one of Indianapolis' first retail shopping centers -- into a data center, which currently includes 65,000 square feet of space and will ultimately house 460,000 square feet spread across five buildings on the property.
