Flexential is a leading provider of data center colocation, cloud, disaster recovery and hybrid IT solutions. It operates 40 connectivity-rich data centers spanning 21 markets in the U.S., including its 142,000 sq. ft. facility in Alpharetta and 30,000 sq. ft. data center in Norcross.
The company selected Alpharetta for one of its data centers given the area’s robust infrastructure, heavy network bandwidth and power. The city’s high density of technology companies and enterprises were also attractive selling points.
Previously known as Peak 10, the company has been involved with Tech Alpharetta for a number of years. Tim Langan, regional vice president for Flexential in the southeast, recently joined Tech Alpharetta’s Strategic Board of Directors as a way to connect with local businesses as well as foster a better relationship with the city of Alpharetta.
“I continue to be impressed with how thoughtful Alpharetta has been about attracting and growing technology companies,” shares Langan. “Through the city’s economic development team and Tech Alpharetta, it has created an ecosystem of technology companies that are all working to support each other. I see nothing but growth here locally, and Flexential is excited to be a part of it.”
