News from the colocation and service provider sector includes expansions and customer wins for ColoATL, QTS and RagingWire Data Centers.
ColoATL builds-out 55 Marrieta Street Space ColoATL announced a significant build-out of its space at 55 Marrieta Street in downtown Atlanta. The build-out includes increased colocation and data center space, and a number of new amenities, including a conference facility and “meet me” area operated by ColoATL’s sister company, The Georgia Technology Center.
The expansion was necessitated by demand for colocation and Software Defined Networking (SDN) peering. The facility is home to the Southeast Network Access Point (SNAP), which provides next-generation Internet Exchange solutions, including SDN peering, testing, collaboration and implementation.
“Our goal has always been to provide affordable interconnection options, quickly,” said Tim Kiser, Owner and Founder of ColoATL. “Additionally, we must deliver the network technologies that meet the objectives of the global Internet community. The ColoATL facility expansion is designed to meet those needs.” Established in November 2001, the fully built-out infrastructure of the facility is located on the 5th and 8th floors of 55 Marietta Street.
QTS is expanding its healthcare client base, with WellStar Health Systems using colocation services at QTS’ Atlanta Metro and Suwanee facilities, which will act as its primary and secondary data centers, respectively. WellStar selected QTS as its primary and secondary data center provider in part due to the company’s ability to provide two facilities in the metro Atlanta area with enough space to accommodate private colocation suites.
“The attention to detail and infrastructure redundancy in QTS’ metro Atlanta facilities were very attractive to WellStar’s cross-functional site evaluation team,” said Jon Morris, M.D., senior VP and CIO of WellStar. “Both physical security and HIPAA compliance were of critical importance in our selection of a colocation provider.”
