Carrier-1 Data Centers is expanding their raised floor capacity in Dallas. The wholesale data center provider has started construction on Phase II of their 106,866 sq ft building with an additional 10,000 sq ft for a total of 20,000 sq ft of colocation space. This is one of multiple raised floor PODs to be constructed by the Dallas colocation provider. Up to 60,000 sq ft of colocation space is planned. Construction on the building is expected to begin next month and will be completed by the end of the year.

Carrier-1 provides premium data center space with 24/7/365 security and facility management. Fault tolerant infrastructure includes redundant power and cooling capacity. The facility meets any compliant requirement including PCI, HIPPA and SOX. Connect to any network carrier directly within the building or via dark fiber to the Dallas Infomart. Multiple racks, Virtual PODs, private cages, suites and powered shell space are available now with plenty of capacity available for expansion. On-site office space is also available for lease.

"Demand for our Phase I data center has been high and we are filling up quickly, so we want to be ahead of the curve," said Trey Berndt, Carrier-1's vice president. "This expansion allows us to continue to provide flexible and reliable colocation services to our customers around the globe."
