More than a year ago, Stream Data Centers purchased 9.6 acres of land in the Westover Hills Business Park in San Antonio to begin its third Texas data center project. In late November, the company announced the opening of its Westover Hills data center.
The Texas data center is a 74,000 square-foot structure situated on the Westover Hills campus. The facility was created to help Stream Data Centers keep up with rising customer demands for Web, application and data collection. Currently, the new facility doesn't have any tenants on board, but this is typical for Stream. The firm usually builds to completion before selling or leasing space within their data centers.
"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," noted Rob Kennedy, Stream Data Centers' co-managing partner. "We're looking forward to completing construction to help meet the growing demand for IT infrastructure in San Antonio and Central Texas."
The Texas data center includes a number of reliability and security features, such as backup generators and dual power feeds, to ensure maximum uptime. The facility was built to withstand inclement weather, including a tornado with 185 mile per hour winds. The structure has been certified as LEED Silver thanks to the practices utilized during its construction.
Overall, Stream Data Centers owns and operates over 1.5 million square feet of data center space. This includes three Texas data centers, as well as a Colorado data center, Minnesota data center and California data center.
