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.

The 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.
