Infomart Data Centers announced in late June the opening of the first wholesale data center suite out of its Dallas data center facilities. The suite, which cost Infomart $40 million to expand out of the existing facility, covers 24,000 square feet of the 1.6-million-square-foot building and will eventually supply up to 40 MW of additional power and 500,000 square feet of data center colocation space.
The wholesale suite will allow service providers to rent larger portions of the facility, up to 3 MW or more of computing power at a time, instead of on a smaller rack-by-rack basis.
Company officials hope that service providers will utilize the wholesale suite for better, faster connectivity and leverage proximity to the networks they access. The building already serves as a network-carrier hub for the Dallas area.
"Everyone connects to the internet through our Dallas facility," said John Sheputis, president of Infomart Data Centers. "All of the major carriers are interconnected here. Every application hosted here will have a performance edge."
