Data Foundry has unveiled plans to build a $200M data centre in Austin, Texas.
The 30,000sq m facility, which will be named Texas 2, will be the company’s third data centre in Austin. It will be located next to Texas 1 on Austin’s Data Ranch — a 40-acre data campus.
The centre will be designed by architecture firm Corgan and built by Dallas-based Structure Tone Southwest.
Data Foundry chief technology officer Edward Henigin said: "Our expansion in Austin is proof of the demand for high-end colocation, and with the construction of Texas 2, we will continue to meet that demand. Texas 1's enhanced dual-feed design was a huge success.
“We are thrilled to incorporate this and other premium design features with the latest advances in data center technology in the development of Texas 2."
Construction work on the project, to be delivered in three phases, is expected to begin this quarter. Texas 2 is expected to open in the third quarter of 2017.
