NEW ALBANY, OH—PCM Inc. said it will commence construction of a new cloud data center here on 8 acres.

The new facility will complement PCM’s two existing data centers and an Integrated Operations Center located in Atlanta. This addition will expand the company’s existing cloud infrastructure and provide geo-diversity for ‘always on’ applications, said Joseph Hayek, president of the firm, in a statement. The data center should open in the fourth quarter of 2013.

“We are very excited about what this new data center means to our customers and to any company that requires 100% up time of their application/cloud environments,” Hayek said. “While cloud computing means different things to different people, companies are constantly challenged by how best to deploy their capital in an economy characterized by rapid technology change. We believe that our customers can benefit tremendously by locating their workloads in our facility or by taking advantage of our fully managed cloud environment in the Tier III facility for production or business continuity purposes.”
