QTS Realty Trust has completed Phase I of construction of its newest facility, QTS Dallas-Fort Worth, and is preparing to launch into Phase II. With QTS Dallas-Fort Worth, the company is transforming a former semiconductor manufacturing facility into a state-of-the-art mega data center.
QTS Dallas-Fort Worth is powered by a QTS owned, on-site 140MW dual-fed substation, providing reliable, uninterrupted power. Air- and water-cooled chillers housed in a central utility building add increased redundancy and energy efficiency throughout the facility. In addition, the facility’s diverse fiber network connections will allow QTS to provide carrier-neutral connectivity with maximum flexibility. Data center connectivity is provided by multiple carriers including FPL FiberNet, TW Telecom, UPN and Zayo.
QTS Realty Trust, Inc. offers three core data center products, including custom data center (C1), colocation (C2) and cloud and managed services (C3) to support the hybrid infrastructure demands of web and IT applications.
“We are excited by the level of interest in QTS Dallas Fort-Worth and have already leased more than 26,000 square feet across all 3Cs,” said Jim Reinhart, Chief Operating Officer, Development and Operations – QTS. “More than ever, today’s dynamic business environments demand reliable, scalable IT services and outstanding support.”
With 12 data centers in eight states, QTS owns, operates and manages approximately 4.7 million square feet of secure, state-of-the-art data center infrastructure and supports more than 850 customers.
