Area Development Online News Desk (04/12/2013)
Stream Data Centers plans to build its 75,840 square-foot, state-of-the-art, Stream Private Data Center on 9.6 acres in Westover Hills Business Park in northwest San Antonio, Texas.
"We are excited to build upon our previous success in San Antonio and start our latest project in the area" stated Paul Moser, Co-Managing Partner of Stream Data Centers. “ San Antonio's diverse mix of Fortune 1000 companies and their growing IT requirements is driving the need for more data center space in the city. San Antonio is also attractive to out-of-region enterprise data center users due to its central US location, reliable infrastructure, and stable cost of electricity."
Stream Data Centers will break ground on its San Antonio Private Data Center in May, with the project scheduled to be completed by February 2014. "We look forward once again to working with Stream Data Centers in San Antonio to identify and recruit enterprise data center users to the area," said Mario Hernandez , president of San Antonio Economic Development Foundation.
The San Antonio market is a one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country and home to a large concentration of financial services, healthcare, and government related organizations, the company said. San Antonio has also become the primary benefactor of the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas. Several major oil and gas companies have set up major operational hubs in the area.
Stream said it strategically selected the site for this development in Westover Hills Business Park. The premier master-planned business development in San Antonio boasts high security and a robust fiber and power infrastructure. The site is in close proximity to other primary enterprise data centers occupied by Microsoft, Chevron, Lowe's Corporation, Valero, Frost Bank, Christus Health and others.
The new data center will initially deliver 2.25 MW of critical load power with the ability to easily expand the critical load to 6.75 MW with all necessary conduit and pads in place. The building will be divided into three Private Data Center Suites. Each PDC Suite will provide 10,000 square feet of raised floor data center space. Stream will utilize its standard 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration and the project will include dual feed power from two separate substations. Additionally, the carrier-neutral facility will include redundant telecommunication rooms serving each PDC Suite with access to the multiple fiber providers serving the site.
