Who bought AT&T data centers? The Dallas-based company announced Thursday a $1.1 billion deal to sell 31 data centers (18 in the US and 13 elsewhere) to Brookfield Infrastructure Partners, which buys and managed infrastructure assets around the world. The assets and operations being sold comprise AT&T’s data center colocation business.
How much is IT to buy a data center? The short answer to your question is that it costs about $1000 a square foot to build your own data center. That’s not taking into account that it can often cost in excess of $10,000 per mile that it takes to have fiber installed to reach your location.
Who owns Evoque datacenter? Evoque Data Center Solutions is among several new players building data center platforms from assets being shed by a large telecom player. The company was formed by Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (BIP) in late 2018 after it acquired a portfolio of 31 data centers from AT&T for $1.1 billion.
