Facebook capitalises with £321m in Texas data centre to meet cloud storage loads

Our ravenous demand for more and more cloud storage has provoked Facebook to stump up £321m for a 500,000sq ft. of wind-powered data centre in Texas.

It is the fifth such provision to be built by the social media goliath, making use of energy efficient servers driven by a neighbouring 200 megawatt wind farm.

The facility in Fort Worth is required to stock billions of photos and videos held by the social network as well as the continuous stream of posts and updates that materialise every millisecond.

It follows the building of parallel centres in Altoona, Iowa, Forest City, North Carolina and Lulea, Sweden to connect the global mandate for its facilities.

As you can see, everyone around the world is talking about Cloud storage and services, and how great it is. If you run a small-medium business Durham, there are many scenarios where Cloud storage can help save you money, work smarter or more efficiently.

Ten years ago, Concept IT set about helping small and medium sized businesses in Durham, grow and develop by leveraging the facilities which large businesses enjoy.  Now our challenge has turned to Cloud storage. We're helping SME's take advantage of enterprise level, high availability solutions which previously only blue chip companies could afford. 

You'll probably have heard about public-cloud, private-cloud and hybrid-cloud.  As each business is unique, we have a product mix which covers all three area's that can be applied to your needs and budget.

The three major considerations for Cloud computing are security, availability and trust.  Concept have designed all of their cloud services in Durham around these three points and as an ISO certified company, you have peace of mind that your company data is safe.

All data on our cloud services is stored securely in Durham and the North East of England.  We have built highly secure networks using industry leading technology from Cisco with layers of security running all the way through.
