Omaha-based CoSentry adding space to data center in Papillion

The Omaha-based company CoSentry is increasing the amount of active space at its Midlands Data Center in Papillion.

The firm is adding 15,000 square feet at its 50,000-square-foot facility, built in 2010, Vice President Manny Quevedo said Monday.

CoSentry operates “co-located” data centers, where space is leased by clients.

The expansion, which will be ready by October, adds space for more than 250 server cabinets with a high-power capacity, up to 12 kilowatts per cabinet. The typical client uses between five and 50 server cabinets, the firm said.

Businesses are increasingly looking to outsource their data centers for security and cost reasons, said Brad Hokamp, CoSentry's chief executive officer.

“Customers realize they need to put their customer-facing, revenue-generating applications in mission-critical environments,” Hokamp said. Doing that in-house, he said, “they can't justify it from a cost perspective.”

The expansion involves installing generators, chillers, batteries, video systems and networking systems.

CoSentry also has data centers in Bellevue, Sioux Falls, S.D., and the Kansas City area.
