Digital Realty Trust, Inc. has signed lease agreements with FIBERTOWN, a Houston-based colocation provider, for Turn-Key Datacenter space in Digital Realty Trust's Datacenter Park - Houston property. Through these lease agreements, FIBERTOWN will utilize the new data center infrastructure for its growth as a colocation, disaster recovery, and business continuity provider in Texas.
"This datacenter infrastructure will enable us to achieve our goal of becoming a leading colocation provider in the Gulf Coast and surrounding geography. The Digital Realty team worked closely with us to find the appropriate space that would support our aggressive growth plans," said John Clanton, CEO of FIBERTOWN. "Utilizing Digital Realty Trust's financial resources and leasing options have enabled us to put our growth plan into action."
"We are committed to working with colocation, hosting, and IT services companies of every size, including those in under-served data center markets, such as Houston, St. Louis, Charlotte, and Philadelphia. This project with FIBERTOWN is a great example of how we can support companies that are investing in growing their businesses," said Brent Behrman, senior vice president, sales at Digital Realty Trust. "The key is flexibility. Through our leasing model, global, national as well as regional customers can eliminate the up-front costs of these capital-intensive projects and quickly take advantage of growth opportunities."
Each Digital Realty Trust Turn-Key Datacenter facility is physically secure and features a state-of-the-art power and cooling architecture that has been optimized for green operation. Every Turn-Key Datacenter is built using the company's proprietary POD Architecture and offers intelligent power management.
