Atlanta’s data center leasing activity is hot and is reported as the third highest in North America. The forecast looks bright for this region and the activity is only projected to rise. The growth is on an upwards trajectory due to $1 billion of venture capital investments over the last year alone. This has revealed increased demand for cloud storage, which is due to thriving industries such as healthcare IT, fintech, logistics, and manufacturing that are heavily dependent on strong communications infrastructure.
DataBank is investing a lot into the region and has recently completed its ATL3 data center expansion, providing the Atlanta area data center with added capacity and space to meet growing demands for strong communications infrastructure. The center is one of the company’s three Atlanta area data center locations, and is located in the Historic West End district. The expansion adds over 22,000 square feet of data center space, resulting in a total capacity of more than 44,000 square feet of white space and an increased total raised floor space of 72,000 square feet. In addition, the construction project increases the site’s IT capacity from 1.5 to a considerable 6MW of total power.
“We look forward to adding this much-needed capacity to the Atlanta market. This expansion aligns well with DataBank’s growth in the region’s data center market and underscores Atlanta’s position as one of the prime emerging internet hubs in the southeast United States.” -Toni Qorri, DataBank’s Vice President of Construction
