Stream Data Centers has officially commissioned its newly constructed hyperscale data center DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth) VII in Garland, Texas.

As announced, this 138,000 square foot facility has positioned the company to meet ongoing demand for colocation and connectivity solutions from enterprises and hyperscale cloud providers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

“Modern enterprises are increasingly consuming both cloud computing resources as well as applications powered by emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality,” said Paul Moser, Co-Managing Partner at Stream Data Centers.

“With our facility in the Garland region of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, we are giving our customers a valuable option for accessing highly resilient infrastructure and robust connectivity options where needed.”

The data center development started in December last year and the now-completed facility, makes room for expansion up to 400,000 square feet and 37.5MW of critical load. DFW VII also enjoys two 40MW utility feeds from a new on-site Oncor substation, two diverse telco entrances with multiple fiber providers and a mix of local, long haul and dark fiber providers.

According to Stream Data Centers, this new 15MW of 2N critical load facility is designed to meet or exceed size and capital investment requirements under House Bill 1223 sales tax exemption program.

The Texas Dallas Fort-Worth area is said to be the second largest data center market in the U.S. and continues to attract enterprises and cloud providers with affordable power rates, tax incentives and a natural disasters safe environment.

Celebrating 20 years in the data center industry, Stream now boasts of providing data center solutions to Fortune 500 companies since it started in 1999. To date, the company has acquired and developed over 2.5 million square feet of data center space nationally, representing more than 250MW of power.

In February this year, the company acquired a 418,000 square foot facility in Goodyear, Arizona, where it plans to establish a data center campus for its hyperscale and enterprise customers in the Greater Phoenix region.
