It has the largest Peering Exchange in the region, Digital Realty Atlanta IX (formerly TIE-Atlanta.) The 21-story office building across the street, 55 Marietta, offers a carrier dense alternative to 56 Marietta.

Hazard Risk

There is little risk of natural disasters in Atlanta. The city is far enough from the Atlantic coast that a hurricane would result in some flooding. That said, a snowstorm can paralyze the city for a couple of days.

Incentives

Since 2005, the State of Georgia has offered 100% sales tax exemptions on software, hardware and construction for data centers with minimum investments of $15 million per year. In addition, corporate income tax is based on sales within the state, and does not consider capital investments and payroll attributed to data center operations.

Topping Out: Placing the Last Beam on the First Building
Posted in Facebook Newton (Atlanta)

The practice of "topping out" a new building can be traced to the ancient Scandinavian religious rite of placing a tree atop a new building to appease the tree-dwelling spirits displaced in its construction. Long an important component of timber frame building, it migrated initially to England and Northern Europe, thence to the Americas. [Wikipedia]

Gasketed Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger
Posted in QTS Atlanta Metro

In a gasketed plate and frame heat exchanger, the fluids run counter-currently through the heat exchanger. The hot liquid normally enters through one of the upper connections and leaves through the connection underneath. The cold liquid enters through one of the lower connections and leaves through the connection above.

As the fluids pass through the heat exchanger, heat is transferred from the hot media to the cold media.
