Compass Datacenters has started the construction of its second data center campus, which is located near Interstate 35E in Red Oak, south of Dallas, Texas.

The hyperscale data center is to seat on a 225-acre land parcel which is on Houston School Road. The facility is designed to support more than 350MW of IT load, serving the company’s hyperscale, cloud and enterprise customers. This Compass campus design also features a dedicated high-voltage power substation, and the facility will enjoy connections to multiple carrier services with diverse fiber routes.

“The Dallas area continues to be one of the most dynamic data center markets in the country. Our Red Oak campus supports customers’ current needs while providing clear line of sight to dedicated growth in the future,” said Chris Crosby, CEO of Compass Datacenters.

“Red Oak is the latest step in our effort to expand in key markets across the United States and Canada. This Red Oak campus will bolster our ability to deliver data centers to our customers exactly where and when they need them.”

As announced, the second Dallas data center campus will have its first phase completed in mid-2020 with the availability of a 6MW facility.

“Compass is a trusted partner to the hyperscale customers we work with, delivering custom, rack-ready facilities on an industry-leading timeline. Customers look to us to accelerate the delivery process in a cost-effective manner. Our Red Oak Campus is another example of delivering what our customers need, when they need it,” said Nancy Novak, Senior Vice President of Construction at Compass.

The company’s first data center in Dallas is located in the suburb of Allen and features over 25 acres, 30MVA of power and 3 diverse fiber paths.

With lots of expansion in 2019, Compass now boasts of having campuses in Columbus, Montreal, northern Virginia and Phoenix.
