ATLANTA, June 23, 2021 – Customers of the American Tower Metro Data Center now have access to a nationwide network, at an even faster speed, from the facility located at 55 Marietta in downtown Atlanta. American Tower (NYSE: AMT) recently began offering Flexential’s FlexAnywhere™ solution, a flexible interconnection platform. FlexAnywhere gives customers the ability to connect to more than 250 networks, data centers, managed services and leading cloud service providers, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
“American Tower is committed to providing our customers with robust connectivity options. By introducing FlexAnywhere, we empower them with more opportunities to connect to their customers and critical applications, as well as provide them the peace of mind that comes with the ability to store data in multiple places,” says David Fox, Director of Business Development, U.S. Innovation for American Tower. “Our customers can now take advantage of the expertise and service our experienced Metro Data Center staff offer, while gaining the ability to connect to a nationwide network.”
With access to the FlexAnywhere platform, customers at our recently expanded Metro Data Center – Atlanta can extend their networks easily.
