US data center services provider ViaWest has launched a new data center to serve the Dallas market. Called Synergy Park, the facility expands the provider’s portfolio to a total of 22 data centers, collectively providing about 500,000 sq ft of raised floor, according to ViaWest.
The new 85,000-sq-ft data center is located in Richardson, Texas – about 13 miles north of Dallas. Services available at the facility include colocation, managed services, hosting and cloud-based products.
ViaWest chairman and CEO Roy Dimoff said the company has had a long history in the Dallas region and the most recent investment testifies to its belief in continued demand growth in the market. More than one-fifth of its raised-floor inventory is located in the region.
“We secured four anchor tenants prior to our official opening, a strong testament to the quality of our facility and our staff,” he added.
ViaWest has so far brought online about 38,000 sq ft of raised floor, according to a company spokesman. The company is nearing completion of two private suites, which will add another 10,000 sq ft.
The site's total critical-power capacity today is 2.5MW, which is expandable up to 12.5MW.
One of the anchor tenants is Dallas Data Center, a colocation and managed services provider that has taken 750 sq ft of space at the facility. Tim Freeze, Dallas Data Center CEO, said: “We evaluated several companies, but in the end ViaWest’s data center infrastructure and customer service won us over.”
In addition to Texas, Denver, Colorado-based ViaWest has data centers in Colorado, Oregon, Utah and Nevada. Prior to Synergy Park, the latest data center the company launched was a 35,000-sq-ft (raised floor) facility in Portland, Oregon.
In May 2010, ViaWest was acquired by private equity firm Oak Hill Capital Partners and private investment house GI Partners.
Since the acquisition, the company has expanded its footprint substantially. Most of the expansion was in Utah, where it bought data centers from Consonus in October, followed by an acquisition of SingleEdge and its single data center in the Salt Lake City area.
In June 2010, the company kicked off expansion projects at three Salt Lake City data centers.
