45,000 square foot expansion to meet demand
Almost two years to the day from buying the Cleveland Technology Center and announcing plans to grow the existing data center by 30,000 square feet (2800 sq m), ByteGrid has commissioned a bigger expansion.
The data center provider has ordered up 45,000 sq ft (4200 sq m) of new space, consisting of 26,000 sq ft (2400 sq m) of high density raised floor data center space and 19,000 sq ft (18 sq m) of conditioned space for mechanical, electrical and power equipment, and technical office space.
Datacenter Expansion Plans
Plans to grow
ByteGrid has plans to continue to grow the 330,000 sq ft (30,000 sq m) Tier III rated data center to meet the continued demand for colocation, cloud, and managed services. The company says its “build to demand “ model has it preparing to build out an additional 30,000 squ ft (2800 sq m) of data center space to keep up with customer requirements.
ByteGrid is focused on providing services to medium and large enterprise customers as well as the Federal government, selling to those needing a high-performance, mission critical data center.
Cleveland is looking to become more of a data center hub, offering tax and business incentives to ByteGrid and other data center providers, as well as a significant collection of carrier capabilities (no fewer than ten different providers) and fiber point-of-presence including a 100 Gigabit fibre network that is currently under construction. The location has geographic advantages, being a midpoint between Chicago and New York and being an excellent location for disaster recovery/business continuity services for data centers located in Chicago.
The Cleveland data center is one of six currently operated by ByteGrid, covering the United States from DC to Seattle and Chicago to Atlanta.
