DALLAS — Compass Datacenters LLC purchased 225 acres in Red Oak, Texas, for its new campus, which will provide capacity to hyperscale, cloud, and enterprise customers. 

Construction has begun, and the first data center — a 6-MW facility — is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of this year. The campus is supported by multiple carriers with access to diverse fiber routes and a dedicated high-voltage power substation.

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

“Compass is a trusted partner to the hyperscale customers we work with, delivering custom, rack-ready facilities on an industry-leading timeline,” said Nancy Novak, Compass’ senior vice president of construction. “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.”
