Sabey Data Centers, a major U.S. based global provider of data center colocation services, has unveiled the specifics of its new data center campus in Round Rock, Texas. With security, reliability, connectivity, and flexibility in mind, the new data center campus is planned to deliver up to 72 megawatts (MW) of power capacity.
The two-building, 40-acre data center facility will handle business requirements of all sizes and scales. It is also scalable to suit hyperscale installations. Sabey’s data center in Austin will incorporate the company’s newest technologies, which would optimize available data center capacity while reducing building footprint.
Sabey will begin site preparation in June 2022 and break ground on the new data center complex in Q1 2023, with a target ready for service date of Q1 2023.
“The Austin region has everything our customers are looking for: a vibrant and growing technology hub, a thriving, diversified economy, and a high quality of life,” said Tim Mirick, Chief Revenue Officer of Sabey Data Centers. “We are eager to offer our award-winning service, lowest-cost power, and market-leading total cost of ownership to companies considering Texas for data center expansion.”
Data Center Sustainability
Sabey’s expansion into the Central United States complements its existing and expanding data center portfolio, which includes data center campuses in Seattle, Washington, Quincy, Washington, East Wenatchee, Washington, Ashburn, Virginia, and New York City, New York.
Sabey Data Centers has announced its second major expansion in 2022, this time in Texas. In February, the firm announced a 70MW expansion to its data center facility in Quincy, Washington, which is being built with the help of a major service provider.
Sabey has been focused on data center sustainability for a long time already. It has pioneered approaches like hot-aisle containment and economizer cooling. Many of its facilities have received Energy Star ratings.
The company’s Texas campus will continue this tradition by emphasizing water conservation and high-efficiency chillers. Sabey Data Centers just had its ambitious net-zero carbon ambitions certified by the rigorous Science-Based Targets Initiative, which is a signatory to both The Climate Pledge and the Department of Energy’s Better Climate Challenge.
