Infomart Data Centers scales out mega Dallas hub

Multi-million sqf facility gets a connectivity boost to support influx of carriers, ISPs, and cloud applications.

American wholesale data centre provider Infomart Data Centers has expanded the capacity of its carrier-neutral Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR) within its Dallas facility.

The company has doubled the available space by upgrading infrastructure to accommodate future carrier installations.

The Dallas BMMR was launched in 2015 and has been used by carriers, ISPs, and cloud applications, which is driving the expansion.

Tenants at the site have access to more than 75 carriers and network providers, as well as the internet exchange, DE-CIX Dallas, and next-generation SDN-based cloud networking services.

In addition to the expansion, Infomat has also added Verizon Communications and Cloud Service Provider ServedBy the Net, with both companies having established new Points of Presence (PoPs) in the Dallas interconnection hub’s BMMR.

Carriers and network providers in the Dallas BMMR include Unite Private Networks, FPL Fibernet, Cogent Communications, Fusion, Innercity Fibernet, Level 3 Communications and Wirestar Networks.

John Sheputis, President, Infomart Data Centers, said: “For companies with latency-sensitive applications or that are deploying hybrid cloud, proximity and connectivity have become business-critical.

“The provider and service diversity within BMMR and Infomart-operated wholesale suites makes Infomart Dallas the ideal option in the region for linking to communication systems both nationally and globally.”

Infomart claims its Dallas data centre to be the largest in Texas at 1.56 million sqf. The facility has been designed to Tier III standards and boosts 50MW of power and capacity for a further 50MW with PUE siting at 1.37.

In addition to Dallas, the company operates hubs in Ashburn, Portland and Silicon Valley. When combined, the four locations top 2,225,000 sqf and 98.3 MW of power.
