U.S. wholesale data center provider, Infomart Data Centers, has announced the commissioning of a new private colocation suite within its Infomart Dallas data center complex. The newly commissioned 500kW private colocation suite is the second project completed in a series of strategic infrastructure investments planned for the building by Infomart Data Centers over the next 10 years.
Designed to maximize efficiency, the highly-connected colocation space provides access to carriers and an Internet exchange already built into Infomart’s carrier-neutral Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR). The owner and operator of the building, Infomart offers free monthly cross-connects within the BMMR to facilitate further interconnection within the “iconic” data center hub.
“Infomart Dallas is home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of carriers, colocation providers, and cloud applications,” said John Sheputis, President, Infomart Data Centers. “Given the growing value for latency-sensitive edge computing, we are delighted to add a second Infomart-operated suite within the facility. Our expansion is one of several that will be completed this year, either by our team or one of our tenants. Every new network connection and new application launched will continue to solidify Infomart’s position as one of the nerve centers for the digital economy.”
Infomart Dallas plans to ultimately add over 500,000 square-feet of colocation data center space and more than 30 MW of additional capacity to the property.
Designed to Tier III standards, the space also provides distributed redundant power design, up to 200 W of power density per square-foot, and a pass-through Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) with a cap at 1.4. The new data center suite holds Uptime Institute’s Management & Operations (M&O) Stamp of Approval, as well as SSAE Type II, SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II, PCI DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, and ISO 27001:2013 certifications.
Infomart Data Centers offers wholesale and colocation facilities in four markets throughout the United States: San Jose, Calif.; Hillsboro, Ore.; Dallas; and Ashburn, Va.
