DRFortress Expands Operations at Honolulu, Hawaii, Data Center Campus
According to company officials, “the strategic expansion is driven by a surge in customer demand for connectivity, cloud and CDN services throughout Hawaii and the Pacific. DRFortress will add 130 cabinets to its existing data center infrastructure, creating a total of more than 600 cabinets for lease and a space of 55,000 square feet.”
"As a proven data center partner serving Hawaii for over 14 years, our customers and partners rely on our ability to meet their growing demands for colocation and cloud services," states Fred Rodi, President and Founder of DRFortress. "This represents our third significant expansion in Hawaii and we are proud to offer our world-class facility at competitive rates."
As Hawaii's premier data center and digital hub, DRFortress said it has seen accelerated customer demand for its proven data center, cloud and IT services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The additional data center capacity is designed to accommodate the new growth and requirements for DRFortress' current telecommunications partners and global cloud providers that are pivoting to an edge strategy for the next wave of 5G technologies.
Upon completion, DRFortress officials explained it will expand on its role as the largest data center in Hawaii, providing exponentially more immediately available space, power and environmental controls than any other local supplier. The expansion is expected to be completed and ready for service in the fourth quarter of 2020.
