Serverfarm Opens Up Additional 110,000 Square Feet of Underutilized Data Center Space in the Atlanta Region
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.
LOS ANGELES – November 16, 2021 – Serverfarm, the innovative data center developer and operator, announces the availability of 110,000 square feet of new capacity at its Atlanta data center, in a move that highlights the company’s extensive business model of modernizing underutilized facilities.
Serverfarm acquired the data center in Suwanee, Georgia, in 2017. The tenant, a global technology company, had 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 offers 14 MW of power.
“We saw an opportunity to cost-effectively add capacity for this client, who was bursting at the seams but needed a more efficient data center strategy, while also applying our signature efficiency- and sustainability-focused data center management approach to this facility,” said Mario Calderone, VP of Real Estate for Serverfarm. “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.”
Ultimately, Serverfarm’s expanded role at the facility is expected to support 40+ Atlanta-based IT jobs. Atlanta is one of the top metro areas and tech and transportation hubs in the country with fast-growing internet infrastructure needs. As an excellent business environment with a fiber-rich networking backbone running throughout the city, Atlanta serves as a home base for many enterprises.
