Westerville has opened the doors to its US$7 million community data centre.
The project, called WeConnect, located at 35 Collegeview Road, spans 16,000 sq ft. The data centre provides area businesses with access to the city’s 66-mile fibre-optic network, cloud computing and secured data storage. Prices depend on the services and range between US$100 and US$100,000 a month. It took three years to complete the project, city officials said. To help with the US$7 million cost, Franklin County allocated a US$5.75 million stimulus bond to the city that isn’t taxable.
