TDS' OneNeck IT expands Eden Prairie, Minn., data center footprint

OneNeck IT Solutions, a TDS subsidiary, has added 6,000 square feet of data center space in its Tier III-certified Eden Prairie, Minn., facility, one of the fastest growing business marketplaces in the Twin Cities metro area.

The facility, which includes nearly 18,000 square feet of total raised floor space, features various elements to ensure security, including biometric security functionality.

Like its other centers, the Eden Prairie facility is also built to be fail-safe and support complex compliance requirements facing businesses today, such as SSAE 16, PCI-DSS and HIPAA.

Having Tier III certification is important because it means that if any one critical component is removed through planned maintenance or component failure, mission critical services will not be interrupted.

While the Eden Prairie facility is the latest expansion target, it is just one of various sites OneNeck has built. The service provider said that it is in the process of building another data center in the Denver area.  

OneNeck was also a key contributor to TDS' second-quarter wireline results. During the quarter, OneNeck reported revenues of $67.9 million, up from $41.4 million in the same period a year ago.
