Ritter Communications, an Arkansas-based regional telecommunications provider, opened a new $8 million multi-user data and cloud storage facility in Northeast Arkansas. Construction on the Data Technology Center began in the spring of 2019 and despite the pandemic, was completed on schedule.
Secure data center and disaster recovery solutions
The 8,544 square-foot facility’s data and infrastructure are protected by N+2 dual-fuel back-up power, 75 MW power capacity and geo-diverse, carrier-neutral fiber entrance systems. The facility can accommodate a total of 82 full racks, four cages with four racks and co-location and storage space for customer IT.
Ritter Communications CEO Alan Morse said,
“At the Ritter Communications Data Technology Center, we operate in accordance with strict privacy and security guidelines. Customer data protection is top priority, no matter what. From California seismic codes and EF3 tornado resiliency to biometric security and advanced clean-powered backup generators, the new Data Technology Center provides secure data center, cloud computing and disaster recovery solutions that protect our customers and their technology assets from any major environmental or cyber risks.”
The Ritter Communications Data Technology Center is the first service provider-grade data center to serve Northeast Arkansas businesses and the only one of its kind in the region.
