American Tower has expanded its Metro Data Center in Atlanta, Georgia through an acquisition.
The US telco recently acquired the 16th floor colocation space at 55 Marietta from Cyber Wurx, a privately held Atlanta-based technology company.
The deal adds an additional 17,000 square feet and 2MW of power to American Tower’s presence in the building. The company now occupies four floors of 55 Marietta and has a total capacity of 6MW across 62,000 sq ft.
“The volume of enterprises connecting through Atlanta, including our Metro Data Center, has increased as the market has gained popularity,” says David Fox, Director of Business Development, U.S. Innovation for American Tower. “We’ve been committed to increasing capacity for our customers, so we can meet the demand for collocation while providing the same quality of service. We’re extremely pleased with the capabilities this acquisition provides for our customers.”
Cyber Wurx will continue to occupy part of the 16th floor as an American Tower anchor tenant and serve its existing customers and support its business.
This is the second expansion American Tower has announced at 55 Marietta recently. Last month the company completed a separate 20,000 sq ft (1,800 sqm) 2MW upgrade on the site.
American Tower entered the building in 2019 after acquiring Colo Atl, a small Atlanta-based colo provider.
Founded in 1997, Cyber Wurx offers colocation and hosting services from 55 Marietta.
