Compass Datacenters has received Frost & Sullivan's award for Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership. Frost & Sullivan's annual awards program recognizes the most innovative, influential companies in each segment of the technology industry. Compass was selected in recognition of the groundbreaking design for dedicated data center facilities, which represents a dramatic advancement in the construction timeline, cost structure, technical capabilities and geographic possibilities for mission critical data centers.

Frost & Sullivan is a respected global research and consulting organization that works in collaboration with clients to leverage visionary innovation that addresses the global challenges and related growth opportunities that will make or break today's market participants.

"Thank you to the team at Frost & Sullivan for this honor. Compass was founded to transform the way dedicated, mission critical data centers are designed, located, built and priced, and this award is a great validation of the scope of our innovation to date and the impact Compass will have on the industry," said Chris Crosby, CEO of Compass.

Compass recently unveiled the next generation of its data center facility design, which dramatically alters the traditional economics for data centers by making dedicated facilities cost-competitive with wholesale solutions in multi-tenant facilities for the first time. The new design provides customers with a standalone facility that can be located anywhere and built in only six months with mission critical features such as  Tier III constructed facility Uptime certification, a hardened building, future proofing via simultaneous high and low density support, as well as over 75 pre-engineered personalization options.
