ARCHER DATACENTERS GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY

Archer Datacenters broke ground on its first ever facility - choosing Gallatin, TN to launch the business. We thank owners Jordan Milman and David Bartholomai for their confidence in our city. 

Milman launched Archer in July 2017 to develop wholesale co-location data centers powered exclusively by renewable energy in under-served and emerging U.S. markets. Internet traffic and data storage demand are both growing exponentially. The Archer business model is focused on capitalizing on this growth, especially as it pertains to enterprise migration from on-premises data storage to the expansion of geographical data centers.

Gallatin’s current unemployment rate is less than 3%. That is why the Gallatin EDA has shifted from pursuing industrial prospects requiring hundreds of workers to the tech industry and corporate offices. Additionally, the Nashville area is the fastest growing small market for tech talent in the U.S. and Canada. Gallatin is one of the nation’s top power suburbs and one of Tennessee’s top ten suburbs for millennials.

GALLATIN GETS IT

A 217-year-old city doesn’t stay alive simply by existing. It stays alive because it grows. Smart growth. Pro-active growth. Gallatin balances the ability to welcome the new, but also politely say “no thank you” to something that we know won’t thrive here.

#GallatinTn is going up across the board- population, economy, and investment. We’re truly a city that invests in itself. Our mission is a resilient and diverse economy. 

Recognized as one of the top “power suburbs” in the United States, Gallatin boasts high-paying jobs and low taxes. Economic health, rich in education excellence, a thriving arts scene, and a vibrant retail environment make Gallatin a hub for family life.

And a big plus: we're 23 miles northeast of downtown Nashville, a city filling with young professionals and big-name businesses. Amazon. AllianceBernstein. Ernst & Young. Lyft. Warby Parker.
