BYTEGRID Plans Alpharetta Data Center Expansion
The Northern Virginia company bought a 77,322-square-foot facility and plans to more than double its size.
This week BYTEGRID announced it bought a 77,322 square foot data center in Alpharetta from a real estate investment trust. The company plans to expand the carrier neutral facility by more than 100,000 square feet of additional enterprise class, mission-critical facilities.
The property is 100 percent occupied by a tenant that is a Fortune 500 leading software and technology services company. The tenant will continue to occupy the facility under an existing long-term lease agreement.
BYTEGRID's plans call for future expansion of the carrier neutral facility on the 15.98 acre property to provide more than 15 megawatts of power capacity to serve the enterprise, government and service provider markets.
"Atlanta is the economic hub of the Southeast and a destination of choice for some of the country's largest enterprise and cloud service providers," said Don Goodwin, executive vice president, Leasing and Marketing, for BYTEGRID. "As the data center hub within greater Atlanta, Alpharetta offers superior access to power and network connectivity and is an ideal location for BYTEGRID's next data center. We look forward to serving the current tenant with the highest quality of mission-critical data center space as we expand our footprint into the region and complement our Mid-Atlantic presence."
Earlier this year, the Northern Virginia-based company announced completion of an expansion and infrastructure upgrade at its financial-grade, 214,000-square-foot.data center campus in Silver Spring, MD. As the largest multi-tenant data center facility in Maryland, BYTEGRID provides highly secure, compliant data center space and serves some of the world's largest companies, including a Fortune 15 financial services firm that relies on it to provide the data center and IT infrastructure underpinning its global business encompassing trillions of dollars in daily transactions with more than 100,000 hours of zero downtime.
