FiberLight, LLC has announced a partnership with Provision Data Services (Provision), a provider of Tier 3 data center services headquartered in Dallas. Under this partnership, FiberLight will construct dual entrances into Provision’s recently opened downtown Dallas data center. The 137,000-sq-ft data infrastructure, located at 2020 Live Oak Street, features 14 MW capacity in Dallas’ Central Business District (CBD). Once construction into the facility is complete, local and regional companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth area will have ready access to a combination of carrier-class fiber optic networking solutions through FiberLight, and scalable colocation and interconnection services through Provision.
“Our new data center in the heart of Dallas’ CBD offers unrivaled available square footage and power redundancy, plus the experience and expertise that comes from our leadership team’s combined 80 years in the data center and transport industries,” says Clay Hill, Provision’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “By providing custom-engineered colocation design alongside in-demand storage and managed cloud solutions, Provision is poised to offer businesses in North Texas robust and reliable data center offerings with convenience.”
FiberLight is one of the first fiber optic carriers to be able to provide services into and out of Provision’s Dallas data center. Its presence within the facility will allow tenants to secure high-bandwidth connectivity to FiberLight’s dense optical network for transport between the data center, into critical business locations, and back to the Internet through additional peering points and Points of Presence (PoPs). Further, the construction required for this project will tie seamlessly into FiberLight’s existing multi-state metro footprints over its recently announced 100-Gigabit long-haul network.
“FiberLight has invested heavily in strengthening our fiber-rich network in Texas, which demonstrates our commitment to supporting the unmatched growth of its technology markets and overall economy,” says Jim Lynch, chief executive officer for FiberLight. “FiberLight and Provision are similarly aligned with respect to our vision to provide state-of-the-art infrastructure for innovative organizations that are creating dynamic technological change both within Texas and across the nation. We’re excited for the opportunities this partnership presents.”
