AT&T Inc. today announced the opening of new data centers in Toronto, Canada and Piscataway, New Jersey. The centers are part of an ongoing expansion of AT&T’s data center network, which includes the addition of more space at six existing centers to meet the growing global demand for application services, managed hosting and colocation.
The Piscataway data center, AT&T’s third facility in the greater New York market, officially opened in October. The new Toronto facility will begin taking customer orders by the end of 2007. The two new sites give AT&T a global total of 38 Internet data centers, with a global footprint of more than 2.1 million square feet of hosting space.
In the U.S., AT&T is adding more space to data centers in Mesa, Ariz. Irvine, Calif.; and Ashburn, Va. Globally, AT&T is expanding facilities in London, Amsterdam and Singapore. The additions are part of AT&T’s $750 million investment in its international infrastructure. All expansions are expected to be completed by January 2008.
