Cloud service provider Atlantic.net announced in mid-December that their new California data center, opened in the San Francisco Bay area, will be their first West Coast facility. The Santa Clara data center will be the company’s fourth facility and was built to meet growing demand from companies in Silicon Valley.
“The Valley is the heart of the developer ecosystem and it is our first priority to ensure that innovative startups in the area have the tools and support needed to further develop and grow their ideas and scale their platforms,” said Marty Puranik, president and CEO of Atlantic.Net.
The California data center will offer 40,000 square feet of available space and 2N power redundancy. The facility will also be connected to hundreds of leading carriers, ISPs and content providers through partnerships with Telx and Vantage Data Centers.
In order to give back to the local community, Atlantic.net has decided to donate 100 percent of their first month’s revenue to Project Homeless Connect. The charity helps homeless residents of the San Francisco area have access to the care and services they need.
“[A]s excited as we are about the launch and growing in the Valley, it’s also really important to us to show that the broader tech industry understands that we’re all in this together, and we have to do our part by helping those that need it the most,” said Puranik. “Project Homeless Connect does amazing work throughout the Bay Area and we’re glad we can help out anyway we can.”
Atlantic.net has been focusing more on growing its infrastructure, opening multiple data centers in recent months. The company added its first international facility with the creation of a Toronto data center, which was followed shortly by the opening of a Dallas data center. Atlantic.net has announced that more sites, both in the U.S. and internationally, will be opening soon.
