Wikimedia purchases new server racks - Data Centre and Server Racks
The company has been upgrading its computing systems during September and has improved its disaster-recovery capabilities, reports DatacenterDynamics.
Two of the new racks hold a total of 72 servers and 12 CPU cores, which double the company's application-server capacity.
Installed at the company's centre in Florida, the equipment is set to be used for networking, application serving, data storage and caching.
The company has also finished replicating external storage to its new data centre in Ashburn in Virginia.
Last month, Intel announced that new servers purchased next year could be fitted with its Xeon E5 chips, which are set to improve the performance of the company's products.
According to the organisation, the latest addition to the firm's product range is the "most phenomenal chip" delivered by the company onto the server market.
