Serverfarm Adds 110,000 Square Feet of New Capacity in Atlanta

The Atlanta data center market is hotter than ever! Serverfarm, a global data center operator and leading DMaaS provider, recently announced it has opened up an additional 110,000 square feet of new capacity at its Atlanta data center, ATL1. In a move that highlights the company’s extensive business model of modernizing underutilized facilities, Serverfarm added much-needed capacity to the Atlanta region while eliminating the need for a carbon-intensive new build.

Critical, Sustainable Capacity and IT Jobs in Atlanta

Atlanta is one of the top metro areas and tech and transportation hubs in the country with fast-growing internet infrastructure needs. In addition, Atlanta’s low costs, central location and underlying fiber infrastructure, make it a key location for data centers.

As the data center industry continues to experience a talent shortage, Serverfarm’s expanded role at the facility is expected to support 40+ Atlanta-based IT jobs.

“We firmly believe that the greenest data center is the one that doesn’t need to be built at all. Through this Atlanta project, we’ve opened up more than 110,000 square feet of available data center space to the local business community, preventing a new data center build.”
– Mario Calderone, VP of Real Estate for Serverfarm.

More on Serverfarm’s Atlanta Data Center

Serverfarm acquired the Atlanta data center in 2017, with plans to expand the space to adhere to the growing need for more data-focused centers in the region. A global technology tenant had initially developed the facility as its enterprise data center but only occupied about a quarter of the available capacity in the building. This year, Serverfarm extended its operations and development role, acquiring and managing the client’s mechanical and electrical infrastructure supporting their IT capacity, while also building out additional capacity, mostly for the rapidly growing customer. In total, the 153,000-square-foot building now offers 14 MW of power.

With available capacity for new enterprise and service provider clients, Serverfarm’s Atlanta facility offers affordable power cost, low natural disaster risk and a fiber-rich digital ecosystem. Through its DMaaS solution powered by InCommand, Serverfarm brings together data center design, IT management and colocation, creating a cloud-like experience for data centers.

With more than 1 million square feet of data center space and 45 MW of power, Serverfarm’s portfolio of owned and managed assets spans 700+ locations across 40 countries.
