According to Pew Research, about 65% of American adults now own a smartphone. The cloud technology that services those users, combined with demand from the financial, technology, social media and healthcare sectors, is driving up demand for data centers nationwide.
Robert Carr of National Real Estate Investor explores this rising demand in an article titled, “Data Centers Demand Rises as High as the Cloud(s).” In the article, Carr cites Digital Realty Trust Inc.’s acquisition of Telx as an example of a major player in the industry scaling up to meet rising demand.
Telx’s 1.3 million sq. ft. of data center space, Carr notes, is expected to double Digital Realty’s footprint in the rapidly growing colocation business and provide the company’s customers access to a leading interconnection platform.
