CAPRE Summit Organizers Select Jake Ring as Featured Panel Member
Atlanta, GA — August 8, 2019 — GIGA Data Centers, LLC (GIGA), the first North American data center to be named OCP-Ready™ announced today that company CEO, Jake Ring, has been selected by CAPRE to speak at the organization’s Fourth Annual Greater Atlanta Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Summit. To be held on August 15th, from 9:30 am – 10:30 am at the Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta, GA, Mr. Ring will elaborate on the state of Atlanta’s growing data center market.
CAPRE has brought together more than 600 senior-level data center real estate and technology infrastructure executives in the Atlanta area for an important industry discussion, debate, and networking. The 2019 summit series addresses important trends such as the growth of hyperscale, edge, colocation, 5G rollout, cloud innovations and growth of the Atlanta market in relation to competitive U.S. markets.
Eighteen Fortune 500 companies have their global headquarters in Georgia and thirty-two Fortune 1000 businesses make the state their home base. In addition, there are 114 colleges and universities in Georgia enrolling over 320,000 full time, tech-savvy students. Add to this list the state’s low power costs and high network accessibility in Atlanta, and it makes metro Atlanta poised for significant data center growth beyond the relatively lower absorption so far.
“Replicating GIGA’s Charlotte Data Center success in the Atlanta market would bring unparalleled flexibility, up to 50kW per rack/cabinet, a Power Use Efficiency (PUE) rating of 1.15, and capacity at or below 5₵ per kWhr—helping to make the region a global data center hub,” Mr. Ring said. “We are excited to be evaluating properties in the Atlanta area and look forward to the possibility of establishing a new facility that offers a high degree of efficiency and reduced OPEX costs for healthcare, High-Performance Computing (HPC), financial services and other organizations.”
