Managed hosting provider ServInt has leased more than half a megawatt of data center capacity at CoreSite Realty Corp.’s expanded facility in Reston, Va., which is currently under construction. The new ServInt facility is expected to open in the second quarter of this year, and will complement existing data centers in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles.
“This significant expansion of our data center resources will help us ensure ample capacity for ongoing and future growth,” said ServInt CTO Matthew Loschert. “We selected CoreSite’s Reston facility for our expansion because it provides best-of-breed connectivity, energy efficiency, power redundancy and environmental sustainability. We consider it to be the best-positioned data center in Northern Virginia.”
CoreSite Realty (COR) operates 11 data centers in seven key U.S. economic centers.
“It is gratifying to expand the data center resources of an important customer like ServInt in an established CoreSite market,” said David Dunn, CoreSite Senior Vice President of Strategy and Marketing. “We believe our facility is well suited to meet the demanding hosting requirements of ServInt’s wide range of customers.”
Grubb & Ellis Associate Vice President David Horowitz and Senior Vice President William Moser, both in the Company’s National Data Center Practice, represented ServInt in this leasing transaction.
“Working with a large, national developer creates efficiencies for companies with a presence in multiple markets,” said Grubb & Ellis’ Horowitz. “For that reason, it was ServInt’s preference and our recommendation to work with CoreSite in this transaction. We’re excited we were able to help expand this relationship, and we look forward to working together in the future as ServInt continues to grow.”
