DRFortress, a carrier-neutral colocation data center and cloud marketplace operating in Hawaii, has launched a major expansion project to its existing data center campus in Honolulu. The strategic expansion is driven by a surge in customer demand for connectivity, cloud and CDN services throughout Hawaii and the Pacific.
DRFortress will add 130 colocation cabinets to its existing data center infrastructure, creating a total of more than 600 cabinets for lease and a colocation space of 55,000 square feet. Upon completion, DRFortress would be able to provide exponentially more immediately available space, power and environmental controls. The expansion is expected to be completed and ready for service in Q4 of 2020.
As one of the premier data centers and digital hubs in Hawaii, DRFortress says it has seen accelerated customer demand for its data center, cloud and IT services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The additional data center capacity is designed to accommodate the new growth and requirements for DRFortress’ current telecommunications partners and global cloud providers that are pivoting to an edge strategy for the next wave of 5G technologies.
“As a proven data center partner serving Hawaii for over 14 years, our customers and partners rely on our ability to meet their growing demands for colocation and cloud services,” said Fred Rodi, President and Founder of DRFortress. “This represents our third significant expansion in Hawaii and we are proud to offer our world-class facility at competitive rates.”
