What do Windstream Hosted Solutions and Florida Georgia Line have in common? They both celebrated the grand opening of our newest data center in Nashville, TN on Wednesday, October 9th. Here's to the Good Times! (Read the official press release here.)

The popular duo, Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, FL) and Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, GA), who met in Music City while they were students at Belmont University, helped the Windstream Hosted Solutions team kick off the evening's festivities, treating guests to a special performance—a private, mini-concert. Known for their party anthems and energetic live shows selling out arenas nationwide, FLAGALine performed some of their most popular tunes for the WHS guests in a more intimate setting. I have to admit, I'm a huge fan and love their originals, but some of their cover songs were equally boot stomping. They did not disappoint—these guys are the epitome of the word "fun".

Guests also toured the impressive facility—22,000 square feet with 10,000 square feet of raised floor data center space, onsite support NOC and engineering staff 24 x 7, sensor-driven cameras to monitor every door, aisle, cage, cabinet, NOC and other secure support rooms, a grounding system throughout the facility to provide connections to the raised floor, posts, cages and cabinets and much, much more.

One thing we heard over and over during the course of the evening was how Florida Georgia Line has taken such an edgy approach to their music style. They've got a country-rapper hybrid vibe that’s clearly working for them. We were so impressed with their spirit and enthusiasm, but even more so with their willingness to try something new in order to test the waters of success. We can relate. Don't get us wrong, we don't sing well. But we get it. We're all about innovative solutions and putting them into play.
