It’s day two after a long anticipated move, and Internap employees are settled-in to our brand new diggs. The move from our downtown Atlanta facility to just outside the perimeter is a welcome change for most employees, decreasing travel times and traffic headaches. The Ravinia location also offers more space for our rapidly growing organization, but not just for employees. The former office headquarters, which is contiguous to the existing Atlanta data center, will be transformed into raised floor data center space, giving Internap customers the option for more square footage within the same facility.
On par with recent data center growth as a whole, Internap has been on a mission to offer more, and upgraded, data center space in popular markets including expansions in Boston in addition to Atlanta, and new facilities in Dallas and Los Angeles. According to Data Center Dynamics, growth in facility profile is expected to increase by 3% in the United States this year, while investments in upgrades to existing data center stock will reach $9.3 billion in 2012.
So what does this mean for you? New and improved data center space within the same facility means you don’t have to move your existing infrastructure − instead we are keeping pace with your growth. And considering our facilities are built with scalability in mind, you won’t run out of power capacity either. We are proud to say our state-of-the-art facilities offer up to 12KW power draw at the rack level.
Overall we think this plan is win-win for customers and employees alike. How about you?
