Human Behavior favors being close to your hardware - Infomart provides office space with IT space

I was chatting with a friend who is helping a client with data center space and he was amazed at how the final decisions of where to host equipment was driven by proximity to the operations staff.

One way to address this is to make it easier to put staff next to your equipment. Example in case is Infomart providing 25,000 sq ft of office space for 125 people in Hillsboro for a new tenant.

Informart said the 25,000-square-foot commercial office space deal will bring 125 people to the mystery company’s existing IT operation.

The expansion brings the total employee count at the Infomart facility to roughly 200 people.
“Data centers are essential for modern economies,” said John Sheputis, president of Infomart Data Centers, in a written statement. “Mature IT operations move substantial amounts of IT equipment and information, both securely and with precision. These processes require more than raised floor, they require people.”
