Vision – Cloud, Colocation, Data Centers
Information technology and telecommunications are playing an increasingly large role in our daily lives. Internet firms such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and Yahoo! (“GAMFY”) have become household brands. What is the backbone of these and other large enterprises?
The answer is data centers. These firms would not operate without racks upon racks of computers and data centers to power and cool them. Computers are not the typical occupants of a building; their demands can take the form of electrical power on the scale of small cities, cooling that dwarfs large-scale manufacturing, and countless telecom lines that span the globe. We are witnessing the birth of a new class of infrastructure specifically designed to support the Information Age.
Wired Real Estate Group (“WiredRE”) is the nation’s leading independent cloud, colocation, and data center advisory firm

We leverage our collective experience, disciplined research, and best-practice models to deliver quick, reliable, and attractive results.
