RICHMOND, Va. (May 3, 2012)–
QTS (Quality Technology Services), one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing providers of data center facilities and managed services, today presented checks to three locally active charities – the U.S. Dream Academy, Central Virginia Food Bank and Wounded Warrior Project.
Virginia Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling was in attendance at the presentation ceremony, which took place at QTS' 1.3 million square-foot Richmond Data Center, one of the largest data centers in the world.
"We were delighted that QTS decided to locate its data center in Virginia," said Bolling. "QTS is not only a beacon of our state's technology sector, but also an excellent corporate citizen. I applaud them for the charitable donations presented today and thank them for helping make Virginia a great place to live, learn, work and raise a family."
Located on Technology Boulevard in Henrico County, Va., the QTS Richmond Data Center was purchased in 2009.

Today, the facility employs high-tech, high-wage employees who manage and secure data for a variety of clients, including federal agencies and well-known enterprise companies.
"We're proud to contribute to Virginia's economic engine by making significant investments in the Commonwealth," said Chad Williams, chairman and chief executive officer – QTS. "In addition to advancing Virginia's technology future, we're pleased to invest in its people through the philanthropic contributions we made today."
