Atlanta is the Internet Hub of the Southeast

Atlanta is one of the top data center markets in the United States and is the hub of internet traffic in the South Eastern US.

56 Marietta Street is Atlanta’s carrier hotel. Digital Realty has been operating the carrier hotel since it was acquired from Telx in 2015. 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.

Wholesale Options:

For almost a decade QTS owned the wholesale data center market in Atlanta with their 970,000 sqft building. Then other providers entered the market. Digital Reality now has 5 buildings, T5 is building their 2nd building. Ascent acquired the former Blackberry facility and launched in 2018, H5, and Server Farm all have wholesale space. In addition, there announced builds (described below) that will open up the supply.

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.
