Hawaii gets new carrier-neutral data centre protected from the elements
The Honolulu-headquartered service provider building is promising lots of expansion in the future, to serve the needs of both local and international clients.
Hawaii telecom provider Servpac has opened a new data centre in Mililani Tech Park in central Oahu. Known as MTP, the new data centre facility offers colocation, disaster recovery and interconnection services to new and existing customers.
The 30,000 sq ft facility has a Tier 4 design and delivers a 2N redundant critical power and cooling system for guaranteed 99.999% uptime. The carrier-neutral facility offers access to multiple providers and Servpac’s own fibre optic network.
Located ten miles inland and 850 feet above sea level, the data centre supports business continuity and disaster recovery requirements. The location offers immediate protection from disruptive events such as hurricanes, tsunami and power outages. Positioned on a five-acre lot, the facility offers expansion space based on customer demand.
“The opening of this data centre marks a major milestone for Servpac’s commitment towards businesses,” said Richard Zheng, president and founder of Servpac.

“As a local company, we plan to invest $30m in the next five years towards building out this state-of-the-art telecoms and managed network ecosystem.”
The facility offers disaster recovery offices with 100 hot desks and 20 private suites, available on-demand with back-up power. On-site amenities include a lounge room, a kitchen and conference rooms with 24×7 access.
“We’re capable of building 150,000 sq ft of colocation and disaster recovery space for customers,” said Zheng. “Our facility will be the largest data centre in Hawaii, offering world-class infrastructure.”
Last month, it was announced that private investment firm GI Partners had acquired a majority interest in Hawaii data centre operator DR Fortress.
