Edge Data Center Firm 365 Sells Dallas, N. Virginia Facilities
Data Center Knowledge, Yevgeniy Sverdlik - 6/9/15
Colocation service provider 365 Data Centers has sold two data centers from its extensive asset portfolio and upgraded power and cooling systems to increase capacity in several other facilities.
The company’s business model centers on providing data center capacity close to densely populated areas for companies that need to deliver digital content to end users. These are so-called “edge data centers,” where web-content publishers or cloud service providers cache content to speed up its delivery to their users. Demand for edge data center capacity is on the rise, and a handful of companies have chosen to pursue the opportunity as a business strategy.
