PRESS RELEASE: Flexential has outlined aggressive steps to continue its national platform expansion with plans to add 33MW of new sustainable data centre development projects in 2022, more than double the rate of expansion compared to last year. Flexential anticipates that it will extend its national FlexAnywhere platform significantly, with the goal of offering customers over 220 MW and 3 million sq ft of capacity across 19 markets by year-end 2022.

As the next milestone in its strategy, Flexential revealed that it has started construction on the first phase of a new highly-sustainable data centre in the strategic Atlanta, GA market. At full build out, Atlanta-Douglasville will offer over 150,000 sq ft of IT space and 22.5MW of power capacity and will be developed to the company's latest energy- and water-efficient Gen 5 design.

Flexential also has announced that it has completed construction of its largest ever development project. The 36MW Hillsboro 3 data centre now offers customers in Portland access to 358,000 sq ft of space to meet continued high demand in this market.  The national platform expansion also builds on recently announced projects in the Denver, CO and Dallas, TX markets.


New FlexAnywhere Solutions

To address the need for rapid deployment of critical infrastructure, the company also today outlined three new preconfigured blueprints that will help customers scale digital business. Developed based on extensive customer feedback from hundreds of real-life deployments, the solutions provide best practices for accelerating the deployment of hybrid IT solutions, improving infrastructure performance and reducing latency to public clouds, partners and customers.

“As we all reflect on the challenges of the past two years and look to the future to accommodate new realities, driving growth has never been a more complicated mission,” said Chris Downie, CEO of Flexential.


“Traditional playbooks will not suffice. Companies must reimagine what it takes to meet the needs of their teams and their end-users.”

The three new FlexAnywhere blueprints are specifically designed to address the key pain points CIOs face in meeting ever-changing business challenges.

  • Providing Agility and Ability to Scale IT Infrastructure: to meet business requirements, services, tools and new business initiatives, with the ability to rapidly scale up or down resources, infrastructure and data centre footprints according to demand. The solution addresses the challenge of aging IT infrastructure by helping CIOs develop short and long-term strategies to optimize costs and manage commitments.
  • Improving Application Performance and Reliability: to meet higher SLAs, application and network availability requirements and provide CIO-level visibility into critical infrastructure
  • Delivering Superior Network Performance and Interconnection: to improve response times and create predictable performance for distributed users, provide secure and reliable connectivity to core data centres, and improve network reliability to customers' cloud providers and business partners

Underpinning the new FlexAnywhere solution approach, Flexential will invest in adding further direct access to all major public cloud providers across its national private 100Gbps backbone in 2022. Through the Flexential Cloud Fabric, customers can reduce reliance on the public Internet for cloud connectivity and leverage a self-programmable portal to flex connections to providers such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. The Flexential Xperience Platform™ provides visibility, control and efficiency of customers' entire hybrid IT environment with Flexential by enabling monitoring and management of data centres and cloud deployments in one unified platform.
