EdgeConneX's Atlanta Data Center Campus can support local requirements
for cloud, content, network and IoT providers, enabling them to deploy
their infrastructure in close proximity to customers and end users
ensuring optimal performance, availability, security and economics for
their services. Meanwhile, local enterprises wishing for private network
access to leading cloud solution providers can also take advantage of
the new capacity and service provider ecosystem available at the Atlanta
campus. With a forthcoming deployment planned by Megaport, a leading
Cloud on-ramp provider, enterprises will also have the network
flexibility and choice to securely access all of the leading cloud
service providers locally in Atlanta.

"Our Edge Data Centers are specifically designed to provide robust power
and cooling with the highest levels of reliability, while delivering
industry-leading uptime availability for customers," states Bryan Weeks,
General Manager for the Southeast at EdgeConneX. "By expanding existing
Edge facilities and developing them into regional data center campus
environments in markets like Atlanta and Miami, EdgeConneX demonstrates
the rapid momentum of the Edge. We will continue to expand our local
Edge footprint on a highly distributed global basis to ensure our
customers can operate competitively in today's latency-sensitive, highly
proximate, data-driven market."

The EdgeConneX Atlanta-2 EDC will be capable of supporting up to five
data halls. Both facilities are carrier-neutral and some of the leading
network providers available will include CenturyLink, Cogent, Comcast,
Level 3, Pilot Fiber, Southern Telecom, Crowne Castle, Telia, Charter,
Windstream, and Zayo offering IP, lit transport and dark fiber
networking solutions. Both Atlanta EDCs, located just outside Atlanta's
City Center, will be interconnected via redundant dark fiber.

Both Atlanta EDCs will be SOC2 Type 2, PCI-DSS and HIPAA-compliant
facilities.
