Originally posted to Data Center POST,
The massive demand for connectivity is fueling the need for reliable data center services, particularly in emerging and secondary international markets. For this reason, many data center providers are expanding their global footprint to provide critical backend data transport and storage in key locations.
Etix Everywhere, which experienced exponential growth and international success in 2016, is a noteworthy example. In February, the company opened new offices in New York and San Francisco, and then launched six data centers in various Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities across the U.S. and Europe, as well as emerging markets in Africa, the Middle East, Scandinavia and South America. Eight additional facilities are also under construction.
Etix Everywhere saw a 150 percent growth rate in built data center modules in 2016, with advanced negotiations for projects taking place in 20 countries.
