We were honored that Kelly Morgan, Research Vice President, and Stefanie Williams, Associate Analyst, both from 451 attended the grand opening of our Dallas TX1 Data Center on April 18, 2017.
Kelly’s team tracks hosting, managed services, and multi-tenant data center providers worldwide. They study providers, do market sizing, analyze supply and demand, and provide insights into the dynamics of the industry. In addition, 451 maintains two critical strategic tools: the Datacenter Knowledgebase, an authoritative data base with more than 100 data points on 4,500 global data centers, and the M&A Knowledgebase of 50,000 tech transactions.
In short, 451 Research knows data centers!
After the grand opening celebration, we invited Kelly to spend a day with us to tour our TX1 Data Center and talk with our President and CEO, Doug Adams. This video shares highlights of the tour and conversation as well as Kelly’s insights into the booming Dallas data center market.
According to Kelly, Dallas is the third largest data center market in the U.S. with 100 leasable data centers measuring 3,000,000 square feet and 300 megawatts – and growing fast!
RagingWire’s Dallas Data Center Campus sits on 42 acres of land and will ultimately have five interconnected buildings totaling 1,000,000 square feet with 80 megawatts of power. Phase 1 of the campus, knows as the TX1 Data Center, has 230,000 square feet of space and 16 megawatts of power.
TX1 was designed for scalability, flexibility, and efficiency, ideal for cloud providers and Fortune 1000 enterprises. Vaults from 1 MW to 5 MW vaults are available as well as private suites and cages, with options for dedicated infrastructure and build-to-suit solutions. TX1 features a highly efficient, waterless cooling system that leverages available outside cool air and does not stress local water supplies. The campus has fiber connectivity to the carrier hotels providing access to 70 telecommunications providers and direct connectivity to the major cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.
