$20m investment in Texas landmark

Equinix has announced a $20m expansion of its data center complex in the Dallas Infomart, one of the largest buildings in the city.

Equinix started with a single data center in Dallas in 2000, and this new International Business Exchange (IBX) will become its sixth facility in the metro area, with connections from over 100 network service providers, and customers including Adobe, AOL, AT&T, China Telecom, Comcast, Level 3 Communications, Sprint, Time Warner Cable, Walmart and Zayo.

Data growth 

Equinix customers in the Dallas area can now distribute their infrastructure between the DA7 and Infomart sites to meet challenges relating to big data analytics, cloud integrated storage, data replication and protection.

The Infomart building, which totals 1.6 million sq ft (148,600 sq m), also hosts an Infomart data center which has 4,000 sq ft (2230 sq m) of space on the fourth floor of the building.

The owner of the building, Infomart, recently branched out into data centers itself, opening a colocation hall with a capacity of 3MW within the complex.

The design of the Infomart building is based on Queen Victoria’s Crystal Palace built in Hyde Park in London, United Kingdom, for the Great Exhibition of 1851. The building burnt down in 1936, after it had been moved to South London.
