Colocation provider Flexential has completed a 70,000-square-foot expansion to its Alpharetta, Atlanta colocation facility. The expansion brings Flexential’s United States data center footprint to 3.1 million square feet.
Atlanta and the surrounding Transaction Alley are one of the largest FinTech hubs in the U.S. with more than 70 percent of all credit card transactions now processed through the Atlanta metropolitan area, according to the Atlanta Small Business Network. These data-intensive companies would need secured, reliable, and scalable means to gain access and transport the data without loss of connectivity.
“As Georgia’s largest credit union, we gain tremendous confidence and benefits through the geographical placement of Flexential’s connected data centers, which deliver the highest level of security and reliable service for our members,” said Chad Jaenke, Vice President, IT Operations and Technical Support, Delta Community Credit Union. “Every person we work with at Flexential is knowledgeable, responsive, and genuinely cares about the success of our business.”
Founded in 1940, Delta Community is Georgia’s largest credit union with more than 394,000 members, three out-of-state branch locations and 26 branches in metro Atlanta.
“Companies are experiencing a data tsunami, with an increased need to store, process and access data securely, efficiently and strategically,” said Mike Fuhrman, Chief Product Officer, Flexential. “Atlanta is a perfect example of a market with exponentially growing demand for secure, enterprise-grade, cost-effective, and resilient data management solutions. Expanding our facilities footprint and interconnectivity in vital metropolitan areas is a key component of our growth strategy. We’re proud to offer our customers increased flexible and essential access to capacity in the Southeast with the confidence of security and availability.”
