Hivelocity Hosting has recently completed construction and re-commissioning of a former Bright House Networks and Road Runner data center located in Tampa, Florida. After reaching an agreement on the property in early 2010, Hivelocity spent 11 months on construction and upgrades. While Road Runner had previously filled the facility with a significant server farm, Hivelocity’s server count far exceeds the former tenant’s. Hivelocity provides web hosting and dedicated server services to customers from over 100 countries worldwide and currently maintains several thousand web servers.

Hivelocity made significant upgrades to the power and cooling to support the existing server loads as well as to provide for growth potential. Over the last 11 months Hivelocity has worked with Tampa Electric (TECO) to upgrade the transformers and conduit which provide power to the facility along with laying and lighting fiber optics to several of its points of presence on the west coast of Florida. Additionally, Hivelocity added a 2nd generator capable of producing 1.5 Megawatts of redundant power along with hundreds of batteries to feed its new General Electric and MGE UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) systems. Of course each of these servers also gives off a significant amount of heat. In order to keep the facility cool, Hivelocity has installed over 100 tons of additional cooling.

The Road Runner facility already had a substantial infrastructure for supporting their IT load and with these upgrades Hivelocity considers itself one of the finest data centers the region has to offer. In addition to web hosting services, Hivelocity also provides local companies with disaster recovery, co-location, and managed hosting solutions. Hivelocity provides on-site support and access 24/7/365.
