Telecommunications services provider Windstream Corporation (WIN) has recently announced the opening of a new data center in Little Rocks, Arkansas. The new 30,000-square-foot data center is designed to expand the company’s horizon into the enterprise segment by providing round-the-clock access to cloud-based and dedicated managed services. Currently, the cloud-based service has been rapidly gaining momentum in corporate communication with global sales from this fast growing sector expected to reach approximately $148 billion by 2014, according to market reports. Additionally, the U.S. remains one the biggest markets globally for providing enterprise-based technological solutions. As a result, telecom companies are increasingly focusing on building infrastructure so as to tap the growing demand for cloud-based service for business solutions. Therefore, building data center remains a key step for these companies. Windstream remains no exception to this trend, as is evident from its data center build-outs covering major cities like Boston, Charlotte, Philadelphia and Phoenix. Companies like Teliris, Polycom, Inc. (PLCM), Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ), AT&T Inc. (T) and Iformata Communications have already made their presence felt in the cloud computing market, creating significant challenges for Windstream. However, the global presence of cloud-based services is still at a nascent stage and there is enough scope for penetration.
