QTS (Quality Technology Services), a U.S. provider of colocation and managed hosting services across networking, security, storage & backup, operating systems, cloud hosting and application hosting, has commissioned an additional 70,000 square feet of raised floor in its Atlanta Metro ‘mega’ data center facilities.
The five-month construction project resulted in a build of 5.4 MW of UPS power to support the expansion of existing customers and data center demand in the Atlanta market. The facility now supports over 200 customers and has 120 Megawatts of utility power.
“This build is an example of our ‘just-in-time’ build methodology,” said Jim Reinhart, chief operating officer (COO), development and operations at QTS. “The scale of our mega data center facilities allows us to build out space in a controlled, well-planned way to meet customers’ schedules.”
