Stream receives highest LEED rating for Texas DC

US-based Stream Data Centers has been awarded LEED Gold Certification for its Private Data Center (PDC) facility in Richardson, Texas.

The purpose-built data center was completed in 2012 and was Stream's second development in the Dallas area in the last two years.

The Richardson community is home to what's known, nationally, as the Telecom Corridor, an area that boasts one of the highest concentrations of technology employees in the country.

Richardson's proven power and fiber infrastructure has attracted major data center operations and critical facilities for companies including Texas Instruments, Bank of America, AT&T, Verizon, Cisco Systems and Fujitsu.

The LEED Rating System, designed by the US Green Building Council, provides standards for environmentally-sustainable design and construction and for high-performance green buildings.

Stream Data Centers' new Dallas-area facility features recycled and regionally sourced construction materials and on-site operating systems designed to conserve natural resources and optimize water efficiency, air quality and energy performance.

It's the third LEED certified data center facility the company has developed in the last three years. 

The new facility is a ground-up, purpose-built data center development totaling 73,320 sq ft, built to Miami-Dade County Building Code Standards and can withstand 185-mph winds and uplift.

It provides 30,000 sq ft of raised floor with all necessary conduit and pads in place, and it offers scalable operations, delivering 3.375MW of critical load that is expandable to 6.75MW.

Stream said it also ensures redundancy for users via dual-feed power from two separate substations and a 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration. The carrier-neutral facility is served by eight fiber providers through diverse, private fiber conduits.

Stream Data Centers is also developing a Private Data Center project in the Houston market and has secured land in San Antonio to begin developing its ninth data center in the last five years. The company is also active in the Denver and Minneapolis markets.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
