Carrier-1 Data Centers, one of the largest data center facilities in North Texas, is expanding their raised floor capacity in Dallas. The wholesale data center provider has started construction on Phase II of their 106,866 square foot building with an additional 10,000 square feet for a total of 20,000 square feet of colocation space.
This is one of multiple raised floor PODs to be constructed by the Dallas colocation provider. Up to 60,000 square feet of colocation space is planned. Construction on the building is expected to begin next month and will be completed by the end of the year.
The new colocation facility would meet any compliance requirement including PCI DSS, HIPPAA and SOX. Customers are able to connect to any network carrier directly within the building or via dark fiber to the Dallas Infomartdata. Multiple racks, Virtual PODs, private cages, suites and powered shell space are available with plenty of capacity available for expansion. On-site office space is also available for lease.
“Demand for our Phase I data center has been high and we are filling up quickly, so we want to be ahead of the curve,” said Carrier-1’s Vice President, Trey Berndt. “This expansion allows us to continue to provide flexible and reliable colocation services to our customers around the globe.”
Carrier-1 owns and operates the 106,866 square foot data center building in Dallas, Texas. Customers may lease colocation space within the building while receiving access to over 95 network carriers.
