Cologix, a network neutral interconnection and colocation company, has launched its second data center in the Dallas INFOMART at 1950 North Stemmons Freeway.
“Our hot aisle containment and In-Row cooling systems are unique in the Dallas market and provide for enhanced customer experience and efficiency,” stated Rob DeVita, general manager of Cologix Texas, in a statement.
“We are excited to introduce this technology to the Dallas community and look forward to supporting our customers' growth,” DeVita added.
Officials with Cologix said that the 12,000 sq ft. new data center is supported by a robust infrastructure that includes hot aisle containment pods, modular power distribution units and the latest in modular In-Row cooling technology, which collectively provide for rapid power deployments and the ability to cool equipment specific to the needs of individual cabinets.
“The continued rapid adoption of the cloud by all customer segments is dramatically elevating traffic and network performance requirements, which continues to heighten the value of colocation and interconnection options in the downtown INFOMART,” continued Grant van Rooyen, CEO, Cologix, in said statement.
Rooyen said that Cologix is focused on providing its customers network neutral access to broad connectivity options, as represented today in this new Dallas inventory.
This new Dallas facility is Cologix's 12th North American data center, including key carrier hotel locations in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Minneapolis and Dallas.
Earlier in January, Cologix unveiled the platform-wide launch of its Standard Connections product. The product has been available in Toronto and is now being expanded into Cologix’s carrier hotel data centers in Dallas, Minneapolis, Montreal and Vancouver.
The Standard Connections product allows customers to leverage leased access into a Cologix controlled environment to colocate a single Ethernet switch or router. Deploying a presence through Standard Connections provides low cost, low risk access to the network providers in Cologix’s Meet-Me-Rooms, as well as the network customers on the colocation floors.
