The company acquired the facility in Suwanee, Georgia, in 2017, and since then, a single-tenant, a global technology company, had developed the facility as its enterprise data centre but only occupied about a quarter of the available capacity in the building, according to the operator.
This year, Serverfarm acquired and consequently began to manage the client’s mechanical and electrical infrastructure supporting their IT capacity, while also building out additional capacity.
In total, the 153,000-square-foot building offers 14 MW of power.
Mario Calderone, VP of Real Estate for Serverfarm, said: “We saw an opportunity to cost-effectively add capacity for this client, who was bursting at the seams but needed a more efficient data centre strategy, while also applying our signature efficiency- and sustainability-focused data centre management approach to this facility.
“We firmly believe that the greenest data centre 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 centre space to the local business community, preventing a new data centre build.”
The company estimates the expanded role at the facility will support 40+ Atlanta-based IT jobs.
Avner Papouchado, CEO for Serverfarm, added: “Forward-thinking enterprise leaders now believe their critical infrastructure is best left in the hands of data centre and IT experts who manage those environments day in and day out and can streamline their overwhelming CapEx investments into predictable OpEx.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this customer’s extraordinary growth story and to serve Atlanta’s top businesses with sustainable, affordable and well-managed data centre capacity.”
With more than 1 million square feet of data centre space and 45 MW of power, Serverfarm’s portfolio of owned and managed assets spans 700+ locations across 40 countries.
