QTS Builds on Enterprise Market Success with Build-to-Suit Solutions and Management Additions
ATLANTA, GA. (April 10, 2012)–
- QTS expands its market reach by launching a build-to-suit offering that eases the data center planning process for enterprise customers.
- Custom data center customers now will benefit from expedited time-to-market and reduced capital expenditures.
- Veteran critical systems sales executive Tom Mertz will head the expanding enterprise team and lead a renewed focus on the real estate brokerage community, which advises enterprise clients on custom data center decisions.
QTS (Quality Technology Services), one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing providers of data center facilities and managed services, today announced a new build-to-suit offering under its Custom Data Center portfolio. Custom Data Center solutions offer attractive alternatives to enterprise clients that might otherwise consider building or buying their own data center. Ultimately, customers will benefit from expedited time-to-market, reduced capital expenditures, mitigated implementation and operational risks, and offloaded support and maintenance needs, without sacrificing or compromising on key requirements.
Build-to-suit projects leverage QTS' enterprise experts who assist companies in site selection, building design, power and connectivity planning, project management and other aspects of non-traditional data center configuration and construction. The new offering comes a year after QTS introduced its industry-first PowerBank™ and PowerFlex™ offers, which permit large users to adjust power and space commitments within the term of their contract to meet current needs more efficiently. These options provide customers with the flexibility to mitigate risk and have attracted multiple enterprise clients in the past year. Build-to-suit will build upon the strength QTS has within the enterprise market by expanding its portfolio of custom offerings.
"Build-to-suit solutions are a strategic outgrowth of the success the company has enjoyed in the enterprise data center arena, and will further enhance our growth by providing a cost-effective, low-risk way to expand the QTS footprint," said Brian Johnston, chief technology officer - QTS. "Our company continues to be an industry leader in the development of large scale data centers that offer flexible data center and cloud solutions. Offering a build-to-suit solution is an additional opportunity to meet and exceed the highly specialized requirements of enterprise customers."
In addition to build-to-suit, QTS announced new management roles that highlight a continued focus on growing the company's enterprise business. Guiding the continuing growth of Custom Data Center services is Tom Mertz, who has been named executive vice president of enterprise sales. Mertz replaces Tag Greason, who was promoted to executive vice president of sales, overseeing all of the company's sales divisions. Reporting to Mertz as an enterprise team member will be Greg Pettine, who joins QTS as national director of real estate relationships. Mertz and Pettine will prioritize outreach to the real estate brokerage community, which regularly advises enterprises on data center purchases.
