Level 3 Communications, Inc recently announces that it is broadening its global data center capacity by adding more business ready space to its San Francisco facility. This added space will hold the enterprise growth that requires efficient, scalable, enterprise-ready facility to support their business applications.

In addition to this, the data center also provides instant access to increased network capacity and direct connectivity to Level 3's global network. Level 3 also manages the facility, eliminating operations, administration and maintenance expenses.
“Enterprises can face challenges with the reliability and growth of critical applications that are not closely situated to the network core,” said Mike Benjamin, vice president of data center product management. “Customers benefit from using Level 3's data centers because we offer direct connectivity to our infrastructure, which can enhance reliability of business applications and, in turn, enable businesses to expand more quickly.”
This facility boasts of high density power cabinets and suites multi-layer security with 24 x 7 closed-circuit video and alarm monitoring; dual authentication security; fully redundant uninterruptible power supply and industry-standard heating, ventilation, and air conditioning; support for 200 watts per square foot power density; and customer work stations and conference room facilities
