ByteGrid Unveils Expanded Cleveland Technology Center

New Capacity Powering Turnkey Colocation, Cloud and Compliant Solutions From Cleveland's Largest Data Center

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2015) - Responding to increasing enterprise demand for mission critical data center capacity, ByteGrid Holdings LLC, a leading provider of data center and end-to-end IT infrastructure services, today announced the commissioning of 45,000 square feet of new data center space and 4 megawatts of power in the Cleveland Technology Center (CTC) on Rockwell Avenue in downtown Cleveland.

Following its' acquisition of the CTC, ByteGrid embarked on a comprehensive renovation and expansion of the facility. The new build out was completed in less than four months and encompasses 26,000 square feet of new, high density raised floor and 19,000 square feet of conditioned space for mechanical, electrical and power equipment, and new technical office space.

ByteGrid follows a strategic "build to demand" model and is now preparing to build out an additional 30,000 square feet to meet additional demand.

Overall, the new data center is optimized to provide turnkey solutions for large and midsize enterprises and federal organizations seeking high performance mission critical data center colocation, managed hosting and compliant hybrid cloud solutions.

"Since its purchase of the CTC two years ago, ByteGrid has established itself as a valued member of the Cleveland business community," said Tracey Nichols, Director, Cleveland Department of Economic Development. "We applaud ByteGrid's commitment to invest and rejuvenate the CTC as it symbolizes Cleveland's business transformation that continues to gain momentum."

"ByteGrid provides a critical point of presence for the Everstream ultra high speed, high capacity network, and has been a collaborative partner since arriving in Cleveland two years ago," said Brett Lindsey, Everstream President. "As we grow our business, we expect ByteGrid's data center and its broad range of connectivity options, including up to 100 GB connectivity, to serve as an important technology resource for growing northeastern Ohio businesses."

A launch party to celebrate the expansion is set to take place at the CTC on June 11 from 3:00 - 6:00 pm. For more information and to register visit this link.

ByteGrid's Cleveland data center encompasses 333,215 square feet of highly secure Tier 3 data center space featuring more than 10 carriers on Net and sits on top of one of the largest fiber point of presence (POP) sites in Ohio. In addition, the location bisects major Midwest and east coast business centers making it an ideal disaster recovery location for markets such as Chicago and New York.

"ByteGrid is a big asset to Cleveland's IT capabilities, including our new 100 Gigabit fiber network under construction," said Frank G. Jackson, Mayor of the City of Cleveland. "Their work here demonstrates ByteGrid's capability in performing a multitude of tasks necessary for the development of a successful data center."

"The renovation of the CTC into a multi-tenant data center delivering turnkey enterprise hosting solutions in less than four months is remarkable," said John Englhardt, President, E Technologies Inc. "We partnered with Eaton corporation to deliver the electrical power system which is truly world class in terms of redundancy, fault-tolerance, and operating efficiency. No corners were cut. It required ByteGrid to take on significant business risk but they did it. They also worked with state and local government in a highly cooperative manner that resulted in significant tax incentives for customers."

"We value our investment in Cleveland and are proud to have created a significant IT resource for the business community," said Ken Parent, CEO of ByteGrid. "Data Centers are the commerce platforms of the 21st century and create business ecosystems of customers and vendors that contribute to a 'whole is greater than the sum of the parts' phenomena that will benefit many other businesses in the area."
