IMN’s Provider Forum on Data Centers and Cloud Services Infrastructure (East): Where C-Level Decision-Makers Shape the Future of Our Digital Economy

Across the globe, the data center industry is experiencing major growth. In fact, a new report from 451 Research projects that the colocation data center market will reach $36 billion by the end of this year.

Direct Access Power: An Enabler of Data Center Sustainability

Direct Access (DA) power allows energy users to competitively source electricity directly from third-party energy suppliers, while still remaining power distribution service customers of a utility. This enables businesses to capture the full benefits of deregulation and aids their strategic energy procurement process.  For Infomart Data Centers, it allows the provider to be more sustainable and also yield substantial electricity savings that it can ultimately pass through to tenants.

This is a unique offering for a data center provider; one that earned Infomart the 2016 infoTECH Spotlight Data Center Excellence Award from TMC.  Infomart buys power on the open market, directly from the same suppliers that sell to utility companies. This allows the company to offer a custom energy mix based on specific property and customer requirements.

CTG now has nearly 100 global carrier and data center clients, and recently expanded its consulting group with the appointment of industry veteran Larry Fisher to the role of Vice President, Consulting Services.
