Global Data Center, an Israeli data centre provider, has completed a multimillion-dollar expansion that has doubled the capacity of its facility.

The completed expansion space of Global Data Center's facility in Herzliya has already been occupied by IT infrastructure of both new and existing clients. The project complements other work recently undertaken by the company such as tripling the facility’s business continuity space, allowing customers to quickly move to the Herzliya facility in the event of an emergency.

"The expansion of our data centre is a significant milestone for us and good news for Israel-related companies and organisations which would like to host their IT infrastructure in a way that ensures business continuity, around the clock service, security, survivability and cost savings,” said Moshe Lasman, founder and CEO of Global Data Center. “Digital transformation, the critical role of data in business processes and the flexible model for consuming electricity and area drive organisations to receive services from high quality specialised vendors such as Global Data Center."

The site is a secured underground data centre facility built in compliance with relevant global standards. As a Tier-3 site offers hosting services, full business continuity and disaster recovery, as well as on-site and remote back-up, cloud computing services, on-demand control and operating services.

"As a data centre which has been active for five years without any fault, the expansion serves as a proof for the strong momentum we are experiencing, when large Israel-based organisation have stopped hesitating whether their infrastructure should be hosted at an external facility, and just ask how and where the hosting should take place. We will continue to be an essential foundation for any large organisation which aims to leverage the benefits of hosting its IT and communications systems at an accessible data centre which complies with the most rigorous international standards and is equipped with all the required certifications and licenses."
