ADDING ALMOST 1MW CAPACITY
Texas headquartered data center infrastructure provider TRG Datacenters, has announced the commencement of construction on Phase 2 of its data center located in Spring, a census-designated place within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of Houston, Texas.
The Houston facility expansion is planned to deliver an additional 10,000 square feet of data center space. This will further allow the data center to offer up to 2.25MW of critical load capacity, an increase from 1.5MW. Upon full development of the 10-acre campus, the data centers are expected to offer up to 10MW collectively.
According to the company’s Chief Technology Officer, Chris Hinkle, the new expansion will provide a bi-fuel option for backup power, allowing up to 20 days of generator usage without any type of refueling. This is planned to be achieved by combining the use of natural gas and diesel fuel or diesel exclusively.
Also in Texas, colocation provider H5 Data Centers announced the expansion of its edge data center located at 100 Taylor Street in downtown San Antonio.
As announced in August last year, this H5 expansion adds 5,000 square foot of colocation space to the company’s Tier III facility in the San Antonio data center campus. This project further expands H5’s Texas footprint which currently features a total of about 85,000 square feet of data center space with connection to more than 25 network carriers.
High-performance computing (HPC) solutions provider Northern Data AG, last year, announced plans to expand its new HPC data center in Texas to an operating capacity of 1,000MW (1GW).
Operated by Whinstone US, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Northern Data, the Texas facility is capable of covering an area of about 40 hectares upon full development, corresponding to an expansion of around 57 soccer fields through the control of hundreds of thousands of high-performance computers operating in parallel.
