Time Warner Cable started the expansion of its National Data Center West in Denver, 1 of 2 centers of its kind for the op. The $85mln data center expansion aims to support TWC's digital video and IP-based services. Specifically, both data centers seek to host applications that support around 70mln residential emails sent per day, manage the billing records of more than 15mln subs and support backend apps delivered to TWC employees. They also support WiFi, high speed data, voice, TV services on smart phones and TWC's smart home services. The CO facility, which houses 70 employees, is expected to go live in Jan '15. TWC plans to add 25% in additional resources to ensure the facility is staffed 24/7. The company is on track to create 400 jobs throughout the construction.
