For a whole range of reasons, metro Atlanta could experience a wave of new data center development in the coming years, write JLL Atlanta’s Mike Dolan and Ryan Fetz in a new guest post for Data Center Knowledge’s Industry Perspectives blog.
Here is a key excerpt:
The Atlanta metro area is appealing to data center owners and developers for a variety of reasons, including:
Reasonable land costs and a low overall cost of doing business.
Low natural disaster risks.
Aggressive local and state government incentives.
An abundance of telecommunications fiber. Atlanta is the main Southeast fiber hub with three Internet exchange points.
