For Immediate Release
Kelowna continues to be a destination for high tech serivces with continued growth in the datacenter industry. Just six months after the merger with long-time competitor Dargal Solutions, Provision Data Systems Inc. has acquired 4500 square feet of new datacentre space in the Landmark Technology Campus. The locally-owned operation has been consistantly growing over the last 13 years, and the new facility will provide them with the capacity to meet the increased demand for colocation, cloud and Disaster Recovery services.
“We were operating at near full capacity,” remarked Jeremy Fichtner, Provision’s CEO. “This space will allow us to continue to grow and provide services to clients that need stable, reliable infrastructure for their data. Coastal companies especially are looking for disater recovery locations that can keep their data safe if any catastrophe hits. Kelowna is a natural choice.”
Uptime is key in the datacentre business which means investing in redundant infrastructure. The new facility has two completely redundant power systems which are supplied from three generators in case of a power outage. Multiple cooling systems provide consistent, reliable cooling for today’s high density servers and provide fault tolerance to keep mission critical services from overheating.
Security features include video surveillance systems, biometric access controls and interlocked secure entry systems.
The new space is currently undergoing construction and Provision Data Systems is targeting early September, 2016 for activation of the new facility. Inquiries are currently welcome for colocation in the new or existing datacentres.
