451 Research highlights Flexential as “clear leader” in the Nashville market
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – October 24, 2019 – Flexential, a leading provider of data center colocation and hybrid IT solutions, today announced a ribbon-cutting on its nearly 40,000 square feet of additional raised floor capacity at one of its Nashville data centers. The expansion at Flexential’s Franklin data center includes 10,000 sq. ft. designated specifically for one large enterprise customer, with the rest built to prepare for additional demand anticipated from the growing region, especially in financial services and healthcare. This brings the company’s Nashville sites to a total of 165,000 sq. ft., offering 10.65 MW.
The Nashville data center market, one of the fastest-growing in the country, was analyzed in the Market Forecast Report, Nashville: Multi-Tenant Datacenter Market released last month by Dan Thompson, Research Director, Multi-Tenant Datacenters, 451 Research. Thompson wrote, “The datacenter market in Nashville has a clear market leader in Flexential. The company offers a full suite of cloud and managed services in the city, in addition to its traditional colocation products. Flexential has many recognizable logos on its customer list but maintains a solid mix of customers from the SME (small-to-medium enterprise) segment. The company has seen success with its compliance savviness and heavy focus on customer service.”
“Not only is Flexential the market leader in Nashville - our market share in the region is three times the size of the closest competitor,” said Mike Krza, chief operating officer, Flexential. “Nashville is one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. and as it continues to expand, so will the need for local companies looking for hybrid IT. Flexential is at the forefront of making colocation and connectivity available to Nashville and we plan to continue investing in this rapidly growing region.”
The new enterprise customer taking up one-fourth of the Nashville expansion shows Flexential’s penetration of Nashville’s large enterprise market. Thompson writes, “Flexential has been trending toward larger deals. The provider has rolled out a sales staff completely focused on the large enterprise segment, and fruits of this movement have already been seen, specifically in Nashville.”
Flexential will host a ribbon-cutting grand opening on Oct. 29 from 4-7 p.m. to celebrate its newest expansion. To register please go to here.
