Data center expansion planned by Internap Corporation

September 14, 2017 by  

An extensive expansion of Internap Corporation’s Dallas data center is planned to help with increasing service demands.

Internap Corporation deals in internet infrastructure and provides its customers with high-performance infrastructure that includes Cloud Services, Network and Managed Services, and Colocation. The company’s Dallas data center meets specifications consistent with a Tier 3 designation and is known for its dedication to security, redundancy, and uptime.

General Manager and Senior Vice President with INAP COLO, Corey Needles, said in the company’s press release:

“Dallas is INAP’s second largest data center metro market. This buildout of our existing facility creates a path for our sales team to keep up with the demand and momentum INAP has established in the Dallas metro market.”

At present, INAP’s data center in Dallas is at 75% occupancy, which is above average for INAP’s facilities. A buildout will create a new pod and increase power in support of the expansion by more than a megawatt.

The use of variable data printing, in addition to enlightening clients, may encourage the growth of companies as they realize that INAP will remain capable of meeting their needs.

Company officials say Dallas is generally viewed as a prime spot for disaster recovery, with less expensive power and an enhanced growth potential. Moreover, the city’s location, midway between the East Coast and the West Coast, gives it access to a large swath of the country.
