feet raised floor data center. The expansion is planned for
completion late this year.

square foot, temperature controlled telecommunications room
adjacent to a 4,000 square foot raised floor, temperature
controlled computer room complete with security, UPS power
backup and emergency diesel generator backup. The complex
