Colocation provider Pryme Technologies will open a new data center in Ashburn, Virginia in July. The company is postiioning its new 72,0000 square foot facility as an "alternative to existing high priced facilities in the area."
"We have spared no expense to bring the best of all solutions to our new Datacenter to provide top notch service at an affordable price," the company said on its web site. "With facilities designed and engineered by top firms in the industry (24/7 Inc, JC Porter Inc, Notari, CCG, DNL Power, Wilhelm Construction) we have brought the best of the best to design our Tier III+ Datacenter."
Pryme's data center on Red Rum Drive is housed in a building that was leased to PullThePlug Technologies late last year. The building is owned by MRP Realty, and is part of the Corporate Campus at Ashburn Center.
Ashburn is one of the most active data center hubs in the country, housing data centers for Amazon, Microsoft, Yahoo, Rackspace, Facebook, MySpace and many others. Digital Realty Trust, Equinix and DuPont Fabros each have multiple data centers in Ashburn.
