Digital Realty Expands with New Data Centers

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – A new year means new data centers for data center solution provider Digital Realty Trust. The company recently revealed that it had acquired two locations in San Francisco, California and Atlanta, Georgia.

Digital Realty paid $85 million for the 155 square feet facility in California. The data center is fully leased, but the company is open to expansion at the site.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta data center was purchased for $63 million and encompasses 334 square feet of space.

“These acquisitions continue our strategy of investing in institutional quality data center facilities at attractive, risk-adjusted returns for our shareholders,” stated Digital Realty Trust Chief Acquisitions Officer Scott Peterson in a press release.

The move follows other company news on Tuesday when Digital Realty announced the appointment of David Schirmacher as the company’s new VP of Technical Operations.

Before his appointment this week, Schirmacher served at FieldView Solutions as the company’s Chief Strategy Officer.

As a company, Digital Realty Trust maintains various data center locations in Europe, the United States, and Asia. For more information on Digital Realty Trust, visit:
