The Bravo phase of expansion of its Satcom Direct Data Center is completed!

The second stage of a four-part expansion has doubled the existing footprint to 10,000 square feet at the Melbourne, Florida headquarters. The extended facility has added capacity for a further 120+ server cabinets providing secure data storage for aviation and terrestrial clients of all sizes. As planned, the Bravo phase was initiated when the existing data center was close to reaching targeted capacity goals.

The Bravo phase mirrors the existing facility providing category five hurricane-proof construction and adheres to the same high compliance standards already in place. The SD Data Center enables the creation of private networks for clients when connected to SD hardware, software and satellite connectivity. Through the infrastructure available via the SD Data Center, existing compliance and security protocols can be applied to the aircraft network like any other corporate location. The installation of the infrastructure is already underway as customer server cages and cabinets are in process. Phase three expansion, Charlie, is now in the planning stage and will further support customized solutions for aviation clients when completed. 

“The SD Data Center provides efficient and secure transport of data across a self-owned, fully redundant and highly-scalable network. It serves our own family of companies and allows us to provide robust cybersecurity monitoring and protection. The latest figures collated from our exsiting threat monitoring subscribers show that this is is becoming more and more necessary,” says Chris Moore, President Business Aviation, about the expansion. “We can now further leverage the capabilities of our Data Center to support current and future internal and customer-facing services which will result in more data management options for our aviation clients.”

SD hosted an open house on 22 May to mark the second phase completion. Attended by civic leaders, government officials, clients and employees, SD invited guests to tour the upgraded facility and discuss the importance of data security to business continuity.
