The new CyberCenter, which is17th data center nationwide and third center in the Washington, DC, is currently supporting one federal government customer. The new 129,000 square foot facility will be equipped with network and hosting capabilities.

The company claims that the new facility is positioned to provide Qwest customers access to secure infrastructure services and a cloud-computing infrastructure.

Qwest said that the new data center provides businesses and government agencies with support for customers conducting e-commerce and operating web sites. Its technology prevents and mitigates disaster disruptions and manages IT environments, including applications, databases and data storage.

According to Qwest, the new CyberCenter features include, server and database management including remote and on-site monitoring and management; on-site and centralised operations providing collocation, network and IT experts on-site; and provides diverse fibre entrances and 3-foot-high raised floor and secure computer vaults.
