Data center services provider EdgeConneXhas added a second Edge Data Center (EDC) in Atlanta. The ATL02 EDC adds 15 MW of critical power capacity; the newly created Atlanta Edge Campus will be able to support a total of 21 MW of capacity once fully built out, says the company.

EdgeConneX expects the Atlanta Data Center Campus to appeal to cloud, content, network, and IoT providers, as well as local enterprises with requirements for private network access to cloud services providers (see, for example, "Community IX builds node in EdgeConneX Atlanta Edge Data Center"). The cloud provider roster will expand soon with the addition of access to Megaport, a cloud on-ramp services supplier.

The EdgeConneX ATL02 EDC is designed to support up to five data halls. Both Atlanta facilities are carrier-neutral, with planned access to such network providers as CenturyLink, Cogent, Comcast, Level 3, Pilot Fiber, Southern Telecom, Crowne Castle, Telia, Charter, Windstream, and Zayo. The two Atlanta EDCs will be connected via redundant dark fiber and will be SOC2 Type 2, PCI-DSS and HIPAA-compliant facilities.
