CentriLogic Expands Data Center In Golden Horseshoe

October 20, 2009 by  

Hosting Tools BUFFALO, NY – CentriLogic, Inc., a Toronto-based provider of outsourced datacenter services, today announced its New York expansion into Buffalo with the opening of a new office in the city’s downtown core.

CentriLogic, which opened its U.S. corporate head office and 23,000-square-foot data center in Rochester, NY in 2007, announced then that it plans to establish additional datacenters across the region, known as the “Golden Horseshoe.” The company has now entered its second phase in Buffalo.

CentriLogic provides a full suite of hosting and managed services and solutions, with data centers in upstate New York and Southern Ontario. Buffalo was a strategic location for CentriLogic’s second U.S. city as it creates a critical link between the company’s datacenters in Rochester and Toronto.

Located in 23,000 square feet of offices in Main Place Tower at 350 Main St., the company plans to add 50 to 75 jobs over the next three years, including technical, customer service and sales positions. As it continues to grow, CentriLogic’s requirement for highly skilled employees will grow along with it.

“Buffalo was appealing to us for many reasons – from its highly skilled workforce and accessibility to power and its proximity to Toronto and Rochester,” said Robert Offley, President and CEO, CentriLogic, Inc. “With Buffalo on our map, it completes our own ‘Golden Horseshoe,’ helping us to better deliver our services both within the USA and across the border.”

There has been a tremendous surge in demand for outsourced datacenter space over the past several years, Offley said. Increased concerns about regulatory compliance, power outages, network security, natural disasters and cost containment are cited as the key contributing factors. CentriLogic’s unique combination of physically secure and internationally diverse facilities, guaranteed up-time and experienced staff, provide companies with a full range of options to meet their needs.

CentriLogic provides maximum levels of physical and data security, including fire detection and suppression, HVAC, biometric user authentication and video surveillance. In addition to co-location, the company offers a spectrum of managed hosting services including: private and managed physical and virtual servers; data management; network; and security services.

“CentriLogic acts as a safety deposit box for companies. It’s our job to keep them up and running, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year,” Offley said. “It’s our mission to take the worry out of hosting and managed services so our clients can concentrate on what they do best.”

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and Erie County Executive Chris Collins hailed CentriLogic’s arrival.

“CentriLogic could have expanded anywhere, but chose Buffalo because of our skilled workforce and strategic location,” said Mayor Brown. “We’re already working together to recruit Buffalo residents for the multi-level technical jobs they will have available. We welcome them to Buffalo.”

Smaller markets like Buffalo and Rochester will likely lead the nation in the development of datacenters due to their secure location, renewable power, and competitive costs, according to Boyd Co., a leading corporate site selection firm.

“It’s reassuring to see smart, innovative, forward-thinking companies like CentriLogic investing in our region,” said Erie County Executive Collins. “CentriLogic’s presence not only means new jobs, it also provides opportunities to attract new investment in Western New York. CentriLogic exemplifies all the positive points we’ve been emphasizing in our business development efforts.”

Offley said the Buffalo area is a great match for its key datacenter, with possibilities for expansion in the region. CentriLogic currently has more than 40,000 square feet of datacenter space and has plans to continue to further expand their footprint in both the United States and Canada.

“We’re excited to be in the Buffalo area – where we’ve already found a pent up demand for our services – and look forward to growing and expanding quickly,” Offley added.

Offley is an experienced senior leader in the IT service and solutions industry and expects CentriLogic will follow previous success in the European and North American markets. Fusepoint Managed Services, a Canadian provider of managed IT solutions, achieved a sustained annual growth of 170 percent under Offley.
