SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Fortune Data Centers (, which provides premium wholesale data center space for corporate customers, announced today that the company has commenced operations of a new highly energy-efficient, green’ data center in Silicon Valley, despite an industry slowdown of new development due to the economic downturn and lack of available financing.

"There is a continuing demand for high quality datacenter space in Silicon Valley,” said Dan Golding, vice president and research director, Tier1 Research. “The current recession has dried up new datacenter supplies while pushing enterprises to outsource their datacenter requirements to specialist firms. The direction of the Bay Area market is clear: higher utilizations now and higher prices in 2010—smart buyers will lock in as soon as possible.”
