Lifeline Data Centers has announced that the second phase of construction at Lifeline's Eastgate data canter on Indianapolis' east side has begun. This expansion will add another 40,000 sq ft of data centre facilities to the existing 50,000 sq ft of data centre already at the 41-acre Eastgate campus. Together with Lifeline's Henry Street facility, the second phase will brings Lifeline's total data centre space to 120,000 sq ft - the largest in Indiana.
As a debt-free business, Lifeline serves hundreds of companies in health care, software, utilities, life sciences, cloud computing and government. The expansion will help Lifeline provide more companies with cost-effective data centre facilities to improve uptime and control costs. Alex Carroll, co-owner of Lifeline Data Centers, said, "Lifeline is expanding because of the continued, sustained growth in demand for data centre facilities in the Midwest."
Lifeline opened the Eastgate data centre in May of 2009 and has filled the first phase of data centre floor space in just over three years. "Demand for colocation (outsourced data center facilities), continues to rise," said Rich Banta, co-owner of Lifeline. "We build highly reliable data centers, and companies are buying nearly as fast as we can build them."
