Stream Data Centers has just announced that its Phoenix I facility located in Goodyear is now near-completion, and has become part of the Cox Business fiber network.

The first of five buildings on the new Goodyear Campus is now scheduled to go live in August 2020. The project was first announced last year with Stream developing what seem to be the area’s largest multi-tenant campus in the West Valley of Phoenix, Arizona.

“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,” Ed Aaronson, Vice President of Cox Business.

Cox Business is bringing its diverse network service offerings to the data center as a key fiber provider, targeting large enterprises and cloud customers. Stream’s partnership with Cox Business enables Phoenix I customers to have access to a suite of connectivity, security, video, voice, managed services and cloud offerings provided by Cox Business.

“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.”

The new data center is about 24 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and sits on a 157-acre land that was acquired alongside the 418,000 square foot facility which is on it. In total, the Campus is expected to offer 2 million square feet of data center space across five buildings supported by a 350 MW onsite APS substation.
