Just south of downtown Dallas, Compass Datacenters has commenced building its new Red Oak Campus that will provide expanded data center capacity to hyperscale, cloud and enterprise customers. The new data center campus will deliver 350+MW of IT load to hyperscale, cloud and enterprise customers.
“The Dallas area continues to be one of the most dynamic data center markets in the country,” said Chris Crosby, CEO of Compass Datacenters. “Our Red Oak campus supports customers’ current needs while providing clear line of sight to dedicated growth in the future. Red Oak is the latest step in our effort to expand in key markets across the United States and Canada. This Red Oak campus will bolster our ability to deliver data centers to our customers exactly where and when they need them.”
Compass Datacenters has purchased 225 acres in Red Oak, Texas, while construction has already begun on the campus. Their first data center in Dallas, a six-megawatt facility, is scheduled for delivery in Q2 2020.
“Compass is a trusted partner to the hyperscale customers we work with, delivering custom, rack-ready facilities on an industry-leading timeline,” said Nancy Novak, Compass’ Senior Vice President of Construction. “Customers look to us to accelerate the delivery process in a cost-effective manner. Our Red Oak Campus is another example of delivering what our customers need, when they need it.”
