ALSO COMPLETES ITS PORTLAND DATA CENTER PROJECT
US-based data center colocation, cloud and connectivity provider, Flexential, has announced it plans to expand its data center platform with the addition of 33MW new data center development projects in 2022.
To start with, Flexential disclosed that it has commenced construction on the first phase of a new data center in Atlanta, Georgia. At full build, the Atlanta-Douglasville facility will offer over 150,000 square feet of IT space and 22.5MW of power capacity.
“As we all reflect on the challenges of the past two years and look to the future to accommodate new realities, driving growth has never been a more complicated mission. Traditional playbooks will not suffice. Companies must reimagine what it takes to meet the needs of their teams and their end-users,” said Chris Downie, CEO of Flexential.
Flexential has also announced the completion of its largest data center development project, the 36MW Hillsboro 3 data center, which now offers customers in Portland access to 358,000 square feet of IT space. The development of Hillsboro 3 commenced in 2020, and in 2021, Flexential partnered with Legacy for the completion and delivery of the facility.
Few weeks ago, Flexential also announced that it plans to expand the power capacity of its data center in Englewood, Denver, Colorado. As designed, the Englewood Data Center power expansion will deliver an additional 4.5MW capacity, bringing the total data center capacity to 11.25MW. This expansion is scheduled to be ready by the end of this year.
Flexential has further affirmed that the recently announced projects in the Denver, Colorado and Dallas, Texas markets will form part of its latest national expansion plan for 2022. The company also anticipates that it will significantly extend its national data center platform, FlexAnywhere, with the goal of offering customers over 220MW and 3 million square feet of capacity across 19 markets by year-end 2022.
