Cloud and managed services provider Bytegrid announced in early June it would expand its Cleveland data center. The Cleveland Technology Center is a 333,125-square-foot facility with access to one of the largest fiber point-of-presence sites in Ohio. The expansion will add 45,000 square feet of data center space and 4 megawatts of power.
Bytegrid acquired the Cleveland Technology Center in 2013. The facility now has 26,000 square feet of raised-floor data center space. Soon, the company will add 30,000 more square feet in addition to the current 45,000-square-foot expansion as demand increases.
Cleveland is a strategic location for data center real estate, as it marks the halfway point between Chicago and New York City. The demand for data center space is high as a result.
"We have a very large medical tech community here in Cleveland, and big data is a huge component of that," said Tracey Nichols, director of Cleveland Economic Development.
Bytegrid operates five other facilities around the country, including an Atlanta data center, a Chicago data center, two Washington D.C. data centers and one Seattle data center.
