EdgeConneX will expand six of its data centers across the US.
The company says it will add nearly 20MW of new capacity in total across six existing facilities the Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Miami, Detroit, and Chicago.
DCD reached out to EdgeConneX for more details, but a spokesperson said the expansion ‘varies by site’ and wouldn’t go into capacity or floorspace details by location.
“We have always focused on building data centers where, when, and how our customers want capacity to support their business,” said Phillip Marangella, EdgeConneX CMO.
“Our strategy of listening to our customers to provide tailored solutions for them that span hyperlocal to hyperscale data centers is what makes us unique. These planned expansions, necessitated by the growing volume, variety, and velocity of data our customers are driving, highlight the accelerating need for digital infrastructure and capacity to best support their customers.”
Investment firm EQT Infrastructure acquired EdgeConneX last year. Since then the company has announced two new facilities in Barcelona, Spain, and Santiago, Chile, as well as forming a joint venture with Adani to expand in India.
