ByteGrid Celebrates Grand Opening in Downtown Cleveland
The ByteGrid Cleveland Data Center celebrated its grand opening downtown last week. Located in the Cleveland Technology Center on Rockwell Avenue, this national data storage company is the largest data center of its kind in Ohio.
ByteGrid will aim to serve large corporations, hospital systems, and government agencies in Northeast Ohio. Although data centers are typically smaller-sized companies, ByteGrid’s Cleveland Data Center has the potential capacity of about 300,000 square feet.
ByteGrid strategically opened its Cleveland Data Center due to the city’s low risk location and access to cost effective, reliable power. The company noted that the Cleveland area is a low risk seismic and hurricane zone and is geographically central to most of corporate America. Cleveland also offers affordable electricity rates and has one of the country’s most reliable power grids.
The ByteGrid Cleveland Data Center is certainly a profitable asset to the Cleveland area, as it is expected to spur economic development and create millions of dollars in annual tax revenue.
