San Francisco, California – (The Hosting News) – June 29, 2006 – Owner and manager of corporate data centers and Internet gateways, Digital Realty Trust, Inc., has premiered enhancements to its corporate web site, tailored to meet the needs of companies seeking technology real estate for mission critical systems.
The Web site enhancements that are currently live include:
* An ”I Need Space” feature that allows companies to rapidly obtain information about available technology real estate space, typically after they know their exact datacenter needs and/or have an immediate need for space. The ”I Need Space” online tool provides users with a means to immediately connect with the appropriate Digital Realty Trust representative who can provide information about datacenter space that meets the customer’s specific specifications.
* A “Live Chat” feature that allows companies to begin the sales process by communicating live with a Digital Realty Trust representative. ”Live Chat” provides companies with an immediate avenue to pose questions to a member of the Digital Realty Trust team using a one-on-one web chat tool that puts extensive technical and operational expertise at their fingertips. Both of these new features are available on the Digital Realty Trust home page.
Additional enhancements to the Digital Realty Trust web site that will be launched in the coming weeks include:
* A series of micro-web sites providing in-depth profiles of each of Digital Realty Trust’s 49 properties across North America and Europe. Each property Web site will provide detailed information about the facility’s technical specifications, existing carriers, space availability, and listings of other building that may be in the same area. The property web sites will also feature the ”Live Chat” and ”I Need Space” tools, designed to allow companies to work directly with the Digital Realty Trust staff to ask questions and obtain additional information about facilities.
Michael F. Foust, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Realty Trust offered, ”These enhancements to our web site are all designed with a single goal in mind: to better serve the needs of companies with technology real estate needs. Features like ‘Live Chat’ and ‘I Need Space’ make it even easier for potential tenants to interact with Digital Realty Trust and get the information they are looking for, and the micro-Web sites about each property will provide a wealth of information about our world-class facilities.”
