(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – ServInt, a pioneering provider of managed hosting for enterprises worldwide, today announced it has leased more than one-half a megawatt of data center capacity at CoreSite Realty Corp.’s expanded facility in Reston, Va., which is now under construction.
CoreSite is a national provider of powerful, network-rich data centers.
Grubb & Ellis Associate Vice President David Horowitz and Senior Vice President William Moser, both in the Company’s National Data Center Practice, represented ServInt in this leasing transaction.
The new ServInt data center is expected to open in the second quarter of this year. It will complement ServInt’s existing Washington, DC data center facility as well as the ServInt data center in Los Angeles.
“This significant expansion of our data center resources will help us ensure ample capacity for ongoing and future growth,” said ServInt CTO Matthew Loschert. “We selected CoreSite’s Reston facility for our expansion because it provides best-of-breed connectivity, energy efficiency, power redundancy and environmental sustainability. We consider it to be the best-positioned data center in Northern Virginia.”
CoreSite Senior Vice President of Strategy and Marketing David Dunn said, “It is gratifying to expand the data center resources of an important customer like ServInt in an established CoreSite market. ServInt’s growth is a testament to their ability to anticipate customer needs and invest wisely in the necessary resources. We believe our facility is well suited to meet the demanding hosting requirements of ServInt’s wide range of customers.”
Grubb & Ellis’ Horowitz added, “Working with a large, national developer creates efficiencies for companies with a presence in multiple markets. For that reason, it was ServInt’s preference and our recommendation to work with CoreSite in this transaction. We’re excited we were able to help expand this relationship, and we look forward to working together in the future as ServInt continues to grow.”
