ATLANTA – March 8, 2016 - Canara, the trusted leader in critical power analytics and facility management services, today announced it has moved its headquarters from San Rafael, Calif., to Atlanta. The company now has two bi-coastal offices to better serve its data center clients across the United States.
“Georgia is considered one of the fastest-growing states for mission critical facilities, and Atlanta is one of the top data center hubs in the nation. In fact, we’ve been proud to call several Atlanta data centers our customers for many years,” said Tom Mertz, CEO. “This move allows us to capitalize on a growing market, robust connectivity, and strong IT talent pool to better facilitate our mission of ensuring critical infrastructure uptime."
According to Georgia Power, Atlanta is home to more than 60 major data centers owned by IT leaders including Google Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., QTS and Twitter. In addition, the city is the major interconnection point on the East Coast between New York, Miami and on to South America. Often referred to as “America’s Most Wired City,” Atlanta’s telecom infrastructure is ranked among the top five U.S. markets for total bandwidth and fiber access, according to the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG).
“Atlanta’s reputation as a technology hub and its prime location initially drew Canara to extend our offices to the Southeast,” said Mertz. “With our chief operations officer, chief technology officer and myself all now based in Atlanta, it only made sense to move our headquarters here.” While Corporate Headquarters has transitioned to Atlanta, Canara will maintain personnel in San Rafael, CA to include operations, sales and analysts. The new corporate address is 2077 Convention Center Concourse Suite 425, Atlanta, GA 30337.
