Stream Builds Another Big Data Center in Texas

Stream Data Centers will build a state-of-the-art, 75,840-square-foot data center in San Antonio, Texas.

The greenfield facility will deliver 7.2 MW of critical-load power. It will include dual-feed power from two separate substations, and Stream will utilize its standard 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration for the project.

Stream plans to divide the data center into three 10,000-square-foot PDC Suites, which can be further divided in 200 KW increments to meet multiple size requirements in the market. The facility will also feature redundant telecommunication rooms with access to the multiple fiber providers serving the site. Each suite will also provide 4,500 square feet of private, dedicated office space for disaster recovery.

“San Antonio’s central location, reliable infrastructure and stable cost of electricity make it a great choice for national enterprise users to locate and operate their mission-critical infrastructure,” said Rob Kennedy, co-managing partner, Stream Data Centers. “We’re looking forward to completing construction to help meet the growing demand for IT infrastructure in San Antonio and Central Texas.”

The Stream PDC in San Antonio will be fully commissioned and ready for occupancy in May 2014. The company also has data center facilities in Dallas, Denver, Houston and Minneapolis.
