With triple-digit growth from GoGrid cloud services the additional data center capacity provided by Digital Realty Trust will allow GoGrid to meet our customers’ needs head on -- ensuring that we remain ahead of our skyrocketing growth curve
San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 28, 2011
GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure provider, today announced its third data center expansion in six months with the extension of its platform into Digital Realty Trust’s 365 Main Street property. GoGrid is occupying a significant amount of data center space in 365 Main Street, which is adjacent to GoGrid’s headquarters. The new facility allows GoGrid to meet increasing demand for GoGrid infrastructure cloud solutions and also serves as a vehicle to offer new Cloud Computing services and management tools. The agreement between GoGrid and DRT includes the building of a new, direct and private fiber conduit linking GoGrid’s infrastructure in the two adjacent buildings.
“We’re pleased to be working with GoGrid on this important expansion of its data center infrastructure,” said Joe Goldsmith, Vice President of Sales at Digital Realty Trust. “While the supply of quality data center space is very limited in downtown San Francisco, 365 Main Street offers highly flexible space to support data center expansions for companies like GoGrid that are growing rapidly. We look forward to being a long-term data center partner of GoGrid.”
GoGrid will utilize 365 Main Street’s infrastructure that includes raised floor space, security, cooling, network, power, fire suppression and other state-of-the-art features. The new data center space in 365 Main Street provides GoGrid an increased data center footprint and close proximity to GoGrid’s corporate headquarters and primary San Francisco data center which in turn allows corporate customers to receive new and enhanced infrastructure services within the GoGrid technology network.
“With triple-digit growth from GoGrid cloud services the additional data center capacity provided by Digital Realty Trust will allow GoGrid to meet our customers’ needs head on -- ensuring that we remain ahead of our skyrocketing growth curve,” said Mark Worsey, Chief Information Officer and Vice President of Technology at GoGrid. “The 365 Main Street data center provides us with an ideal location to expand our presence as part of our global rollout.”
GoGrid currently operates a data center in San Francisco, CA. In February 2011, GoGrid announced the opening of a European data center and in June 2010, GoGrid announced expansion into an Equinix, Inc. data center located in Ashburn, VA.
