DENVER, Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Demand for data center services continues to be robust in markets that present alternatives to traditional data center hubs like Chicago and Miami. Cologix, a network neutral interconnection and data center company, announced today it has started construction on expansion projects in both Minneapolis and Jacksonville to add up to 2MW of additional capacity to its North American platform. The projects will create a new data center suite in Cologix's JAX2 data center at 4800 Spring Park Rd. in Jacksonville and complete the final phase of Cologix's MIN3 data center at 511 11th Ave. South, in Minneapolis. Both projects are expected to complete in December 2016.
"We see three key trends driving data center demand," explains Grant van Rooyen, president and chief executive officer, Cologix. "Content and applications continue to push closer to end users, enterprises are increasingly outsourcing data centers to colo providers and hybrid cloud architectures are driving enterprises to data centers that offer numerous cloud options and low switching costs to future proof their IT strategies."
"Each of these trends are driving disproportionate growth in markets like Minneapolis and Jacksonville," adds Scott Turer, general manager, Cologix. "Cloud service providers and enterprises are our fastest growing customer segments and both groups are demanding new capacity that we are happy to build and make available. We expect to have significant portions of the new capacity in each market sold before the projects complete."
Cologix has selected trusted construction partners to construct the new capacity. Parallel Technologies is constructing the second Phase of MIN3 and Perry McCall is constructing the new suite in JAX2. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
