“With plans to have more than 40 megawatts of critical power in more than 120,000 net square feet of Tier III plus data center space in each of the three major national power grids, we’ve set some rather ambitious goals for ourselves, but I can’t think of two people better suited to help us reach them than Tom and Richard,” said Smith. “They’ve got the experience, intelligence and capabilities to help us meet those expectations in each of these coastal markets – and then soar right past them.”
