THE 4TH EXPANSION AT THE DATA CENTER SITE
Carrier-neutral data center and cloud service provider DRFortress, has just announced the expansion of its data center campus in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Scheduled to be ready by Q1 2023, construction has commenced at the site and the new expansion is expected to provide additional capacity for 200 cabinets, bringing the total Honolulu campus capacity to 800 cabinets available to lease and a space of about 65,000 square feet.
“Our customers and the Hawaiian business community are always at the center of every decision we make, and this fourth facility expansion is no different,” said Rosa White, Co-President and Founder of DRFortress.
“These new additions to our campus enable our customers to continue operating at the highest levels while we simultaneously provide our comprehensive, state-of-the-art colocation and cloud solutions. For the last 16 years, we have invested in our flagship data center and seen exponential growth – we’re excited to see what the future holds.”
DRFortress has been operating the Honolulu data center location since 2006, and has completed three expansions over time. The last expansion project was completed in March 2021 which provided an additional 125 cabinets and brought the data center to have a total of 600 leasable cabinets, as well as an aggregate space of 55,000 square feet.
Servpac Inc., is also a Hawaiian cloud and data center service provider which in 2020, opened its latest facility in Mililani Tech Park (MTP), Hawaii. The 30,000 square foot data center is sited 850 feet above sea level and 10 miles inland, which Servpac claims to be a naturally secure location, offering hurricane protection and located outside of major flood and tsunami evacuation zones. The MTP data center can accommodate up to 250 cabinets, and the entire facility has an additional expansion space of about 150,000 square feet while it sits on a 5-acre land of Central Oahu.
