SunGard Availability Services is expanding its data centers in Midtown Atlanta and Smyrna, GA, according to a February 18th release. The Atlanta area has a number of companies that need data center space in more than one center, and SunGard provides a cost-effective, gigabit network connection for customers to link up operations across SunGard’s three Atlanta area sites.
SunGard Midtown Atlanta facility is undergoing a large-scale power
upgrade designed to support an additional 350 cabinets of IT space
for customers. The upgrade includes adding 2.5 megawatts in utility
power, doubling facility capacity. The infrastructure will also gain
an additional two megawatt generator, one megawatt in UPS power and
300 tons of cooling capacity. The plan for the Smyrna facility is to
add 25,000 square feet of raised floor for colocation and managed
services with 16,000 square feet delivered in phase one. The upgrade
also includes adding six megawatts of utility power, 2 N utility
power redundancy (accessing power from separate utility substations),
UPS power with N+1 redundancy and 700 tons of cooling capacity.
