Stream Data Centers, a leading data center developer in the Texas market, has completed construction of its fully-commissioned Private Data Center in Richardson. The facility is located in a high-tech community, known nationally as the Telecom Corridor® area, which boasts one of the highest concentrations of technology employees in the country.
The Stream Private Data Center is a ground-up, purpose-built data center development totaling 73,320 square feet, built to Miami-Dade County Building Code Standards to withstand 146-mph winds and uplift. Additionally, Stream utilized accredited construction and design practices required to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
"Stream's Private Data Center is a wholesale option that allows companies to immediately deploy critical data center operations, control their own space and infrastructure, and expand power and cooling in a cost-effective manner over time," said Paul Moser, co-managing partner of Stream Data Centers. "Demand from corporate users for this purpose-built, scalable product is strong."
This data center is Stream's second development in Richardson in the last two years. Richardson's proven power and fiber infrastructure has attracted major data center operations and critical facilities for companies including Texas Instruments, Bank of America, AT&T, Verizon, Cisco Systems and Fujitsu.
"Richardson is quickly becoming a powerhouse for data center companies looking to locate in our Telecom Corridor® area, and the addition of Stream's new facility is a very welcome addition," said Richardson Mayor Bob Townsend. "Its goal for gold-rated LEED construction also builds upon our community's focus to promote sustainable development, which is another reason why we couldn't be happier to have such a prominent corporate partner choose to be a part of our city."
The Stream Private Data Center delivers 3.375 MW of critical load with the ability to easily expand to 6.75 MW across 30,000 square feet of raised floor with all necessary conduit and pads in place. Stream utilizes a 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration and provides dual-feed power from two separate substations. The carrier-neutral facility is served by eight fiber providers through diverse, private fiber conduits.
The building is available and can be controlled by a single tenant or divided into three fully-independent Private Data Center Suites™. Each Private Data Center Suite houses a 10,000-square-foot raised-floor data hall, disaster recovery office space, redundant private telecommunication rooms and a private utility yard. Each suite is supported by 1,125 KW of 2N critical load delivered by an independent power and cooling infrastructure with the ability to expand to 2,250 KW.
The company is also developing a Private Data Center project in the Houston market and remains active in San Antonio and Denver.
