Stream Private Data Center will be built in 73,320 square feet to withstand 146-mph winds and uplift
Data centre developer Stream Data Centers has started construction on Private Data Center in Woodlands, Texas.
The data centre will be built in 73,320 square feet area built according to Miami-Dade County Building Code Standards to withstand 146-mph winds and incorporate sustainable design practice to achieve LEED Gold certification.
Stream Private Data Center will deliver 3.375 MW of critical load with the ability to expand to 6.75 MW across 30,000 square feet of raised floor with all necessary conduit and pads.
The facility utilises a 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration and provides dual-feed power from two separate substations.
The new data centre can be controlled by a single tenant or divided into three fully-independent Private Data Center Suites. Each Private Data Center Suite delivers 1,125 KW of 2N critical load that is expandable and supported by independent power and cooling infrastructure.
Stream Data Centers has selected the Woodlands as it provides strict zoning and a controlled environment with no proximity to industrial uses, rail lines or flight paths.
Stream Data Centers co-managing partner Rob Kennedy said, "The Stream Private Data Center in The Woodlands offers corporate users a wholesale data center option located within a master-planned setting."
The new facility will be fully-commissioned and ready for occupancy 1 April, 2013.
