DENVER-WorldCom, the nation’s second-largest long-distance telephone provider, opened a 1110,000-sf, $20-million data center in the Denver Tech Center. The center will host and manage Internet-related services, allowing businesses to make high-speed connections to the Internet, voice and data networks.

The center also allows businesses to store their equipment at the center, where WorldCom can manage all of their e-commerce applications for them.

WorldCom currently has 66 data centers worldwide, and expects to have 85 by the end of 2001.

In the Denver area, WorldCom also bought 12 acres west of Centennial Airport, south of the Tech Center, where it could build a center identical to the Tech Center facility, if it has enough business to warrant it.

WorldCom estimates it will take three to five years and another $20 million investment to completely fill its current data center.

WorldCom’s data center customers include AOL, Walt Disney and Ford Motor Co.
