Citing an effort to meet relentless demand, colocation data center provider Cyxtera Technologies has announced it will be expanding a number of its data centers in the US.
The data centers in question include Cyxtera’s facilities in Silicon Valley, Phoenix, Atlanta, New York Metro, and Toronto.
Furthermore, the company will also be deploying its CXD On-Demand Colocation offering - recently expanded to the New York Metro and Chicago markets - to Silicon Valley in the second quarter of 2019.
According to Cyxtera, Silicon Valley, Phoenix, Atlanta, and New York are among the top ten data center markets in the United States, while Toronto is the largest market in Canada, and this growth shows no signs of slowing.
"Enterprises continue to embrace colocation as a way to reduce operating costs and take advantage of modern technology infrastructure without sacrificing control or security," says Cyxtera Data Center Services president Randy Rowland.
"In addition, increased demand for cloud and hybrid services is driving service providers to consume our data center capacity. Our expansions enable us to meet growing customer demand in these key markets. We're also pleased to continue to expand our CXD platform to more markets to meet demand for this innovative on-demand offering."
The company has broken down each of the aforementioned markets to justify its investment.
Cyxtera asserts further data center expansions within the United States and globally are also planned for 2019.
