Time Warner Cable opens national data center in Charlotte

Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) said Friday it has opened a 178,000-square foot national data center in Charlotte, N.C., which will host applications for both residential and business customers.

The MSO said it spent $82 million to build the data center, which employs 225 people. The data center features 1,600 racks of technical equipment that can support about 70 million residential emails daily, in addition to billing records and backend applications for Time Warner Cable employees.

Time Warner Cable announced plans to build the data center in 2011. It also houses commercial cloud applications that the MSO acquired last year from NaviSite. The Charlotte facility includes a four-story, 103,500 square-foot administrative office building.
