Web Host ReviewsRICHMOND, VA – QTS (Quality Technology Services), one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing privately-held providers of data center facilities and managed services, today announced that it will open its new, 1.3 million square foot data center campus approximately two months ahead of schedule in the first week of November. The first phase of development, which opened  November 1, will comprise 50,000 square feet and offer customers up to 18 megawatts of power. Suites and custom data center solutions will be customizable from 1,000 to 50,000 square feet. Colocation and managed service options will also be available in the QTS Richmond facility. Concurrently, the company announced the signing of the first government agency that will occupy the new QTS Richmond Data Center. QTS has leased 6,000 square feet with a megawatt of power to a federal government services agency that will open late in the fourth quarter of 2010. Terms of the contract were undisclosed.

“The progress in Richmond has been exciting and quick-paced,” said Chad Williams, Chief Executive Officer for QTS. “We’re pleased to be able to get this Richmond facility open for our first government services agency, as well as for other government agencies, government contractors and commercial customers, more than 60 days ahead of schedule. Equipped with the latest advances in data center technology, QTS Richmond is an impressive site that is well-equipped to handle both primary and secondary customer infrastructures.”
