Digital Realty Trust, Inc., an owner and manager of corporate and Internet gateway data-centers, announced that Hosted Solutions will establish a mission critical data-center in Digital Realty Trust’s 125 North Myers Street facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. The company states that the site encompasses over 15,000 square feet of space, including over 7,500 square foot of raised floor Turn-Key Data-center™ space, with adjoining shell space for expansion. This will significantly increase Hosted Solutions’ data center capabilities to meet demand for its managed services from customers in Charlotte, upstate South Carolina and nationwide.
“We are very excited to announce the opening of our second Charlotte datacenter,” said Rich Lee, Founder and CEO of Hosted Solutions. “The opening of this datacenter is a testament to Hosted Solutions’ commitment to grow strategically in our current markets while giving our customers the personal relationship of a small company and the resources of an enterprise organization. Digital Realty Trust’s state-of-the-art facility is the ideal environment to support our customer’s needs, and it has been a valued partner in the process of establishing this new datacenter.”
“Hosted Solutions was seeking a premiere facility with advanced security, cooling and power systems, and our facilities in Charlotte fit all of the company’s technical requirements. The facility is a major hub for communications infrastructure in the Southeast, making it an ideal environment for managed services companies like Hosted Solutions that want a wide range of connectivity options,” said Chris Crosby, Senior Vice President of Digital Realty Trust.
