READING, Pa. — Penske Logistics has completed a significant upgrade of its Ohio-based data centre. The multi-million dollar project, started last November, was recently concluded.
The data centre, which serves all of the company’s supply chain customers, was previously housed on-site at a Penske Logistics facility in Beachwood, Ohio. The new centre is now located a few miles away off-site and has increased square footage available for future data centre expansion, according to company officials.
“This new facility is staffed 24 hours a day by data center experts and provides state-of-the-art redundancy, security, cooling and power for our technology solutions,” said Tom McKenna, senior vice-president of logistics engineering and technology for Penske Logistics.
“Our company committed to this endeavor to better serve the needs of our customers with the next generation of technology infrastructure,” he said. “Enhanced disaster recovery tools are an important part of that infrastructure. Our customers will also benefit from improved system performance that comes with the addition of advanced logistics production hardware.”
