GoGrid Adds San Francisco Data Center
February 28th, 2011 By: Rich Miller
Cloud infrastructure provider GoGrid will expand its data center footprint with a new installation at the 365 Main Street facility in San Francisco, the company said today. The move marks the third data center expansion in six months for GoGrid, which will take “a significant amount of data center space” at the Digital Realty Trust building, which is adjacent to GoGrid’s headquarters.
The new facility allows GoGrid to meet increasing demand for its cloud solutions and also deploy new services and management tools, the company said. The agreement between GoGrid and Digital Realty includes the construction of a building of a new private fiber conduit linking GoGrid’s infrastructure in the two adjacent buildings.
Strong Growth Drives Expansion
“With triple-digit growth from GoGrid cloud services the additional data center capacity provided by Digital Realty Trust will allow GoGrid to meet our customers’ needs head on – ensuring that we remain ahead of our skyrocketing growth curve,” said Mark Worsey, Chief Information Officer and Executive Vice President of Technology at GoGrid. “The 365 Main Street data center provides us with an ideal location to expand our presence as part of our global rollout.”
GoGrid currently operates a data center in San Francisco, CA. In February 2011, GoGrid announced the opening of a European data center and in June 2010, GoGrid announced expansion into an Equinix, Inc. data center located in Ashburn, VA.
“While the supply of quality data center space is very limited in downtown San Francisco, 365 Main Street offers highly flexible space to support data center expansions for companies like GoGrid that are growing rapidly,” said Joe Goldsmith, Vice President of Sales at Digital Realty Trust. “We look forward to being a long-term data center partner of GoGrid.”
