Colocation provider AtlantaNAP will expand of its Enterprise Data Center 2 by adding another 13,500 square feet of available space, the company said today. The expansion will be completed and available for occupancy on April 1.
This is the second expansion of the facility, which opened a 12,500 square foot addition last summmer. At the completion of this expansion, 50,000 square feet of a total of 56,000 square feet will be finished data center space.
"The expansion will serve strong demand from Fortune 1000 enterprise clients for active and disaster recovery space," said Jeff Hinkle, president of AtlantaNAP. "As the economy has deteriorated, many CIOs are more concerned about their budgets and are optimizing their use of space with the AtlantaNAP."
Hinkle said colocation "allows for a redirection of capital outlay into a monthly expense, allowing the company to efficiently continue operations in this environment of tight capital."
It's been a busy month for Hinkle, who also heads the AtlantaNAP's affiliate Global Net Access (GNAX), which just announced an expansion into the Dallas market, where it will lease space in a Telx data center.
