For the time being, there is data center capacity available in one of the top markets in the country -- Dallas. That’s great news for you, as contracts can be written with flexible terms customized to your needs.

Who is already here? Fortune 1000 companies are finding that the Garland / Plano / Richardson area near Dallas-Fort Worth is an ideal location for large-scale data center deployments. This trend is turning what was at one time known as the “Telecom Corridor” into the “Data Center Corridor.”      

With some of the lowest power costs in the U.S. and a business-friendly economy, the Dallas-Fort Worth area has established itself as a top tier destination data center market. Dallas is highly appealing both for companies looking for data center capacity available today, and for those looking to the future to grow their space in an affordable market.

Dallas is surging in so many ways. Forbes named the Dallas-Plano-Irving area as the No. 1 best U.S. city for job growth. The Kauffman Foundation put Dallas in the Top 10 in its Index of Growth Entrepreneurship. Businesses looking to expand their workforce can tap into a deep labor pool of 3.8 million people.

So with all of this interest, why is there data center capacity available in Dallas? In the last few years, there has been a data center building boom – resulting in a surplus of space … for now. No one knows how long this space will remain available, but one thing is for sure – as the space gets absorbed, prices will go up.

According to JLL’s 2018 report, Dallas data centers have about 79 megawatts of data center capacity available out of 516 megawatts of inventory. And that doesn’t even count the room we have to grow at our 42-acre fenced Dallas Data Center Campus, which has space for five interconnected buildings totaling over one million square feet of space.

We can give you the best deals in Dallas for customizable space at our 16-megawatt Dallas TX1 Data Center, which has been featured in media outlets such as Dallas Innovates, Data Center Frontier, and Bisnow.
