Today’s data center environment is straining the traditional “Do-it-Yourself” (DIY) model of data center development to its breaking point. Rapid advances in technology are requiring firms to grow their data centers at an accelerating pace while current economic conditions are causing opposing capital constraints. KDC and Digital Realty Trust have formed an alliance to provide the best-in-class build-to-suit data centers specifically designed and purpose built according to the unique technical requirements of companies within Corporate America. As the build-to-suit leader in the U.S. commercial real estate industry, KDC has developed office, industrial and data center properties from ground up for national companies across all industry sectors at locations throughout the U.S. KDC manages the entire development process including site acquisition, construction and tenant move-in so that users are able to dedicate their staff and resources to their core business. Digital Realty Trust, the worldwide leader in wholesale data centers, is able to leverage its technical expertise and financial strength toward the design, equipment procurement and operational aspects of the data centers. Digital Realty Trust’s advantage enables the alliance to accelerate the time frame required to commence operations in a new data center without the risks and increased costs associated with the DIY model. KDC and Digital Realty Trust have formed this synergistic alliance so that both companies can do what they do best – create state of the art build-to-suit data centers resulting in maximum economic efficiency for our customers.
Why a KDC/Digital Realty Trust Build-To-Suit Data Center?
Today’s data center requirements vary greatly across many industry sectors. The demand for new data centers with increased power and cooling capacity is growing in tandem with rapidly changing technology. As a result, the supply of existing data center space continues to diminish, along with available capital for new facilities. As your safe solution, KDC and Digital Realty Trust are able to leverage our development, technology and financial expertise to provide build-to-suit data centers for firms that want a customized facility.
Flexibility: A KDC/Digital Realty Trust build-to-suit data center allows you to determine the design of your own facility. In a best of both worlds scenario, this process allows you to guide the design of the data center in accordance with your unique IT requirements.
Modularity: A customized data center allows for the design of a modular facility that can evolve along with your changing technology requirements. A well designed KDC/Digital Realty Trust data center allows for expansion as needed.
Less Risk: Our financial and data center design experience, along with our construction expertise, enables us to offer a solution that reduces your cost, delivery and reliability risks.
Better: Your facility is built by the industry leaders in corporate build-to-suit solutions and wholesale data centers.
Faster: Our combined paralleling processes for site selection, design, construction, commissioning and close-out provide for fast-track development completions. In addition, our ongoing equipment procurement programs accelerate the construction completion time frame by ensuring that long lead items will be delivered much sooner than traditional methods. With KDC and Digital Realty Trust, your data center will be completed in half the time required versus building it yourself.
Simpler: We understand that firms have varying complex data center requirements. We listen to the needs and then guide the process from that point. This lets you focus on your personnel and resources for your core business. We make what is complex much simpler by offering a “one stop shop” for your build-to-suit facility.
