365 Data Centers has revealed plans to double the size of its Tampa data center campus facility. The company says it will add another floor of data center space and increase available power.

The campus, located at 655 North Franklin Street, offers access to 25 carriers on-site and serves as a key component of the Tampa Internet Exchange, 365 asserts. The site offers redundant power, cooling, connectivity and 24/7/365 security, and is HIPAA, PCI DSS, SSAE 18, SOC 2 and ISAE 3402 compliant. 365 recently completed a significant power plant upgrade made at the site as well.

“While growing the company significantly throughout the past six years, we are proud to have built our business on superior customer service and infrastructure solutions,” stated Bob DeSantis, CEO of 365 Data Centers. “This expansion will solidify 365 Data Centers as the leading network-centric colocation service provider in one of our fastest-growing edge markets, providing existing and prospective customers with access to additional space, power, and connectivity.”

“Uniti Fiber has been a 365 customer in Tampa for many years and 365 has proven to be among our most reliable colocation partners across the entire U.S.,” said Tom Payne, vice president, carrier relations for Uniti Fiber. “We look forward to further growing our footprint with 365 in Tampa and other 365 markets as we are confident in 365’s commitment to expansion to best service its customers.”
