Press Release

VISI opens Minnesota's newest data center

May 18, 2010

Open house includes data center tours, ribbon-cutting ceremony and product demonstrations

 

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN, May 18, 2010 - VISI will celebrate the grand opening of its newest data center with an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, May 21, 2010 from noon to 6 p.m. at VISI’s Eden Prairie headquarters. The event is open to the Twin Cities business community and will feature product demonstrations, data center tours, food, drinks, prizes and educational sessions on cloud computing and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technologies.

 

The VISI data center is being built to Tier III specifications and will feature 18,000 square feet of raised floor when completely built out, which will make this one of the largest data centers in the state. The Eden Prairie data center will significantly expand the ability to meet the demand generated from VISI’s colocation, managed hosting, and cloud computing services.

 

“Demand for colocation space in the Twin Cities remained strong during the economic downturn and continues to outpace supply,” said Mike Sowada, CEO of VISI. “The additional space provided by our Eden Prairie facility will allow more Midwest companies to expand and benefit from colocating their mission critical equipment in a world-class data center.”

 

Eden Prairie Mayor Phil Young, accompanied by members of the Eden Prairie Chamber of Commerce, will cut the ribbon for the new data center at noon on May 21. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the inner-workings of the Tier III data center during guided tours.

 

Two months ago, VISI joined forces with Telephone and Data Systems Inc. (TDS), a Fortune 500® company based in Chicago. TDS subsidiary, TDS Telecommunications Corp. will be demonstrating its managedIP solution during the open house for those interested in the latest VoIP technologies.
