Darren Bonawitz, co-owner of 1102 GRAND, said, "We continue to see consistent demand across the SMB and enterprise sectors along with increasing activity among carriers and service providers."

Due to the design of the infrastructure, 1102 GRAND is able to easily build out spaces in a modular fashion and utilize a "just before" inventory approach in order to ensure that investments are maximized and the risk of stranded capital is minimized. "This new colocation expansion will appeal to customers that are looking for their own private space without the upfront capital expenditure or ongoing maintenance costs," said Bonawitz.

"In addition to pricing and diversity benefits via the most robust list of carriers and service providers in our region, organizations are increasingly turning to 1102 GRAND as a trusted partner, managing the data center infrastructure so they can focus on their core business instead," said Bonawitz.
