100 percent uptime

The original site was operated by Fortune Data Centers, a company that merged with Dallas Infomart in 2014.

The expansion programme will include electrical upgrades to provide 2N redundancy and fortified connectivity, as well as a number of new offices to host IT operations staff and a supplementary Meet-Me-Room for increased network redundancy.

Infomart will install new UPS units, backup generators and switchgear to increase reliability and efficiency, although the facility has achieved 100 percent uptime since opening, the company said.

The facility is currently the only wholesale data center in California to provide Direct Access power pricing and metered power at about $0.85/kWh – about 30 percent less than the local utility – the company said.

Infomart also operates data centers in Ashburn, Portland and Dallas in the US
