Windstream helps flooded businesses in Nashville protect vital company data with off-site storage

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – To help Nashville businesses affected by the severe flooding in the area, Windstream (NYSE:WIN, news, filings), a voice, data, networking and communication system provider, has created additional space at its emergency Data Storage Center for businesses to store their servers, routers and other mission-critical data equipment.

Windstream’s Offsite Data Centers provide businesses:
