EdgeMicro Adding 5 New Micro Data Centers Across the U.S.

EdgeMicro’s new edge colocation micro data centers are strategically positioned across the United States to create stronger connectivity opportunities. Construction on five new micro data centers has already begun. The sites are slated to be online beginning in Q4 2020.

EdgeMicro’s Growing Portfolio of Micro Data Centers 

EdgeMicro’s new micro data centers are being constructed in:

  • Cleveland
  • Indianapolis
  • Memphis
  • Houston
  • Pittsburgh

EdgeMicro strategically selected these underserved markets due to their strong population base and input from their growing client base. The launch of the new sites augments EdgeMicro’s already operational sites in Austin, Texas; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Tampa, Florida. 

“Success of our initial locations has accelerated our deployment to the edge,” said Mike Hagan, Founder & CEO of EdgeMicro. “Our portfolio of eight strategically positioned MDCs offer businesses the chance to connect to users and fully demonstrates our ability to scale in a rapidly growing edge market. By offering infrastructure closer to the end user, we lower latency and positively impact the bandwidth challenges that have been created by increasingly important work-from-home demands related to the COVID-19 pandemic.”  

What’s Driving Micro Data Center Trends?

The proliferation of 5G, increased use of smartphones and the rising use of IoT devices are driving the need for edge facilities. According to a report by Global Market Insights, the edge data center market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 20.5% between 2019-2025. Edge data centers direct internet traffic away from primary carrier networks to local public internet networks, which typically increases speed for users and provides a better user experience. 

Nationally renowned internet companies and content providers are anchor tenants in EdgeMicro’s facilities in Austin, Tampa and Raleigh, with plans to expand their footprint to the new locations.
