Stream Data Centers, a company with over 2.5 million square feet of data center space across the U.S., is developing one of the area’s largest colocation data center campuses in the West Valley in Phoenix – a fast-growing data center market. The first of five buildings on the new Goodyear Campus will go live in August 2020.
At less than 24 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Stream’s 157-acre Goodyear Campus will offer 2 million square feet of data center space across five buildings supported by a 350 MW onsite APS substation.
This near-complete Stream Phoenix I data center in Goodyear will become part of the growing Cox Business fiber network. Stream customers would benefit in two ways. First, they will be able to interconnect their Stream services with other data centers or to their local offices using either dark fiber or Internet transport services with speeds up to 100Gbps. Second, Stream customers will have access to the full suite of Cox Business connectivity, security, video, voice, managed services and cloud offerings supported by a local team of experts.
“Adding Cox Business to the mix helps us bring world-class connectivity offerings into the Goodyear Campus,” said Chad Rodriguez, Vice President, Network and Cloud at Stream. “As one of the most robust fiber providers in the West Valley, pulling the Cox Business backbone into our data centers helps us ensure that our customers will have the high performance, low latency connectivity they need to support their businesses.”
Blending Data Centers and Connectivity
Stream Data Centers is a subsidiary of Stream Realty Partners, a full service commercial real estate investment, development and services company. Founded in 1996, Stream has grown to a staff of 900 real estate professionals with offices in major markets across the U.S. The company manages nearly 230 million square feet of commercial properties and completes over $3.5 billion in transactions annually.
“Cox Business has invested more than one billion dollars in Arizona, over the last decade, in expanding its Arizona network to help the Phoenix Metropolitan Area become one of the most connected regions,” said Ed Aaronson, Vice President of Cox Business. “Data centers are a key component to the economic growth of our community. Our collaboration with Stream Data Centers illustrates the importance of blending data centers and connectivity. This is critical for our local businesses as they compete in a rapidly growing, data-driven economy.”
