(Gawkwire.com) – Seattle colocation provider, CoreLink Data Centers, LLC, a leading provider of high quality, Tier 3 Data Centers, with co-location facilities in Chicago, Phoenix, Seattle and Las Vegas, announced today, that it has added a second data center to the Seattle market. CoreLink has entered into a long term lease for a 39,000 square foot facility which is currently configured with 13,000 square feet of raised floor. Utilizing 6 MW of total dedicated power, CoreLink will modify the existing infrastructure to bring it up to CoreLink’s typical 2N configuration and 150 to 200 watts per square foot of useable UPS power. As is typical of CoreLink designed data centers, the design is flexible to accommodate varying levels of density requirements from low to high density. The completed facility plan delivers up to 25,000 square feet of useable raised floor, providing ample space for expansion for CoreLink’s existing and future customers. The site is in Tukwila, WA and is located adjacent to CoreLink’s existing Seattle colocation facility (SEA01) which is presently 90% occupied. The location is situated close to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as well as downtown Seattle.
CoreLink also announces the signing of an anchor tenant for their second Seattle colocation facility (SEA02). WTS, the leading provider of hosting, managed disaster recovery, and IT infrastructure services for Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World products, has entered into a long term agreement to co-locate in the new facility. “We are very pleased to have partnered with CoreLink Data Centers”, said Tom Hughes, WTS CEO. “After an extensive due diligence process, we selected CoreLink for their operational excellence and the quality of the facility infrastructure.
