Stream Data Centers, a U.S. data center developer and operator, developing and operating data center facilities for corporate users and cloud providers, has announced that construction has commenced on their latest data center development in Dallas, Texas.
The ground-up 145,000-square-foot, ‘ready-to-fit’ data center is being built in Legacy Business Park, a master-planned office campus and mixed-use development in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. The facility, scheduled for completion in October 2017, is Stream’s tenth data center project in Texas.
“The North Texas market continues to attract corporate data center users and cloud providers looking for large blocks of space in a safe location with access to superior connectivity and reliable power,” said Rob Kennedy, co-managing partner of Stream Data Centers. “This data center will provide enterprise users and large-scale cloud providers with an attractive wholesale option in one of the fastest-growing markets in the country.”
