In a statement released Thursday, data center developer Server Farm Realty announced that the company would begin accepting Bitcoin payments.
Server Farm Realty CEO Avner Papouchado says the move is all about finding “ways to make it easy for companies to work with us.”
Server Farm Realty is a privately held data center development firm, owned by the Red Sea Group, with facilities in Santa Clara, California; Chicago; Moses Lake, Washington; Toronto; and Charlotte, North Carolina. Papouchado stated:
"As one of the first data center owners and operators to accept bitcoin as payment, our innovative approach to business, coupled with the leading-edge design, security and capabilities of our facilities, continue to differentiate Server Farm in the market."
That interview was in the wake of the company opening a US$220 million, 450,000 square foot data center in an old GE factory in Chicago.
It also appears the company was teasing Bitcoin accepting back in March, when Papouchado visited CoinSummit in San Francisco and invited others to come speak with him via Twitter.
