AT&T is expanding its data center network, and will expand its Synaptic Hosting cloud computing service to additional sites as part of a $1 billion investment in infrastructure in 2009, the company said today. AT&T will expand its data center hosting capacity in Atlanta, Annapolis, Md. and the New York/New Jersey metro area in the U.S., as well as in Hong Kong, Tokyo and the United Kingdom globally. AT&T’s data center network spans more than 2.6 million square feet of space in 10 countries.

The telecom giant also said that it would expand its AT&T Synaptic Hosting platform in new “super IDCs” in Singapore and Amsterdam as well as three additional sites within the United States. AT&T also said it was  expanding its managed hosting services onto the client premises, a move that can deepen already ‘sticky” managed hosting relationships.
