Stream Data Centers Announces New Private Data Center Development in Houston
HOUSTON, Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Stream Data Centers announced today that it has acquired 7.6 acres of land for a new state-of-the-art data center development in The Woodlands, Texas, a master-planned community north of Houston. The Stream Private Data Center (PDC) will be a 72,500-square-foot ground-up development. The purpose-built data center will be constructed using Miami-Dade County Building Code Standards, providing the ability to withstand sustained 146-mph straight-line winds. Additionally, Stream is utilizing accredited construction and design practices required to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
The data center will initially deliver 4.5 MW of critical power with the ability to easily expand the critical load to 9.0 MW with all necessary conduit and pads in place. The raised-floor area will be divided into three independent 10,000-square-foot Private Data Halls. Stream will utilize its standard 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration and provide dual feed power from two separate substations. Additionally, the carrier-neutral facility will include redundant telecommunication rooms serving each data hall and access to multiple providers. The site has access to excellent power and fiber infrastructure and will also offer 72 hours of onsite fuel storage.
“Stream’s Private Data Center in Houston continues our Texas expansion and provides an excellent addition to our portfolio,” stated Paul Moser, co-managing director of Stream Data Centers. “The demand for data center space in Houston is strong and this ground-up, purpose-built facility will provide enterprise users with an attractive wholesale option in Houston’s premier master-planned community.”
The Houston market is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country with the world’s highest concentration of energy companies, and hosts robust healthcare and aeronautical industries.
Stream Data Centers will break ground on its Houston Private Data Center in February and the facility will be fully-commissioned and ready for occupancy in December 2012. Stream is developing another Private Data Center located in Richardson, Texas, which will be complete in May 2012.
