Ascent Opens Data Center In Dallas, Texas, Metro Area

Ascent, a leading provider of comprehensive data center solutions, opened its latest data center facility in the Dallas suburb of Plano, Texas.

According to company officials, known as DAL1, the center “spans 4.3 acres and is equipped with 2.7 MW of critical power with the ability to expand up to 7.2 MW. The data center is highly connected with multiple fiber providers. The building has three diverse paths for fiber access, providing multiple points of entry for connectivity.”

The center is designed to provide the highly flexible and scalable data center infrastructure necessary for enterprises in the growing Dallas-Fort Worth region, while offering hardened building construction, capable of withstanding EF5 tornadoes, officials added.

“Texas has been hit hard with severe weather, including heavy rainstorms, hail and tornadoes recently. This is the perfect time for us to bring our enterprise class hardened facility to the market, which, with its EF5 hardening, is much more secure and reliable than standard facilities," said Phil Horstmann, CEO of Ascent.

"Dallas is a premier data center market and our hardened facility offers a different type of product that is well suited as a primary data center site for enterprise end-users as well as businesses seeking disaster recovery and continuity solutions in the Midwest. With our team’s ability to move quickly and deploy to the customer’s specifications, we can provide flexibility and capacity to accommodate companies with short term capacity needs and long term growth potential,” he added.
