Flexential has laid the groundwork for a new data center in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of its intentions to expand its data center footprint this year. The firm expects to add 33MW of new data center construction projects in 2022.
Flexential has begun construction on the first phase of a new data center in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of the expansions; when completed, Atlanta-Douglasville will have approximately 130,000 square feet (12,00 square meters) of IT space and 22.5MW of capacity.
Chris Downie, who serves the role of CEO of Flexential, had the following to say:
As we all reflect on the challenges of the past two years and look to the future to accommodate new realities, driving growth has never been a more complicated mission. Traditional playbooks will not suffice. Companies must reimagine what it takes to meet the needs of their teams and their end-users.

Flexential said in December that it has obtained $2.1 billion in securitization financing and that it planned to deploy funds to this development as part of its 2022 growth goals.
The Hillsboro 3 data center in Portland, Oregon, has also been finished, according to the business. Customers will have access to 358,000 square feet (33,300 square meters) of space at the 36MW facility.
Flexential announced plans earlier this month to increase the power capacity of its Englewood data center in Denver, Colorado, to 11.25MW by the end of the year, an increase of 4.5MW.
Altogether, Flexential plans to provide clients more than 220MW and 3 million sq ft of capacity across 19 countries by year’s end 2022, more than doubling its growth pace from 2021.
