The Growing Need for Cloud Connectivity

As chief information officers for enterprises across industries look to connect in-building IT infrastructure to Artificial Intelligence, IoT, 5G-based applications and other emerging technologies, the need for cloud connectivity will rise. A recent study by Gartner predicts that spending on public cloud services will increase from $270 billion in 2020 to more than $332 billion in 2021. The agreement between the American Tower Metro Data Center and Flexential positions customers to access the cloud as well as the data center services that are mission critical to business operations. 

“American Tower is committed to providing our customers with robust connectivity options. By introducing FlexAnywhere, we empower them with more opportunities to connect to their customers and critical applications, as well as provide them the peace of mind that comes with the ability to store data in multiple places. Our customers can now take advantage of the expertise and service our experienced Metro Data Center staff offer, while gaining the ability to connect to a nationwide network.” – David Fox, Director of Business Development, U.S. Innovation for American Tower.

The addition of FlexAnywhere and the added cloud connectivity capabilities are the latest in a steady stream of improvements that help customers connect. American Tower recently announced that it acquired the 16th floor of 55 Marietta from Cyber Wurx. The acquisition brought Metro Data Center’s total capacity to 6 MegaWatts.
