PAETEC Plans 13 New U.S. Data Centers

PAETEC announced plans to add 13 data centers across the U.S. by the end of 2012. The company currently operates seven data centers in Andover, Mass., Bethlehem and Conshohocken, Pa., Richmond, Va., Milwaukee, Wis., Houston, Tex., and Phoenix, Ariz.

PAETEC also released new cloud-based services, including:

  • Virtual Server -- computing and associated storage on a per-logical server basis for a monthly fee.

  • Dedicated Server -- turn-key implementations that reside in PAETEC's enterprise-class data centers. PAETEC's service enables customers the option to make the transition to virtualization and cloud computing at their own pace, without the burden of new infrastructure deployment or specialized design to support virtualization.

  • Managed Storage -- offering an advanced, multi-tenant storage platform with the ability to purchase storage on demand and on a granular basis as required.

  • Hosted Exchange -- allowing a business to access the power and simplicity of a Microsoft Exchange E-Mail server with PAETEC technicians and engineers available for support.
