We are excited to announce today that VPLS has completed the acquisition of its second Texas data center location (DA2). The property includes 18.8 acres of land and a 75,000 square foot, 10-megawatt facility that is currently 100% leased to a data and technology company. The acquisition provides VPLS with another modern, well-run and maintained data center as well as the property and expansion potential to support additional data center developments in the future.
The current facility supports 2.5 megawatts of critical IT load based on a 2(N+1) design and is expandable to 16 megawatts total. It is rated as a Tier III data center based on physical, electrical, and mechanical infrastructure. The highly resilient, purpose-built data center is also designed to withstand direct impact from an F3 tornado.
“We are thrilled to add this additional Texas location to our growing national portfolio. The central US remains a strategically important market for our team and this acquisition was a great opportunity to expand our presence in this geography while also contributing to our revenue stream with a world-class client,” commented Jay Smith, Vice President and General Manager, Data Centers at VPLS,
George Rogers, Senior Advisor to VPLS, says, “This transaction furthers the company’s strategy of acquisitions of high-quality data centers in strategic locations in order to provide critical infrastructure support to its customers.”
Arman Khalili, CEO of VPLS, adds, “The acquisition of this Texas facility demonstrates our focus on growth in key markets. As our data center and network footprint grows, VPLS can immediately deliver our cloud-to-edge solutions and services to these strategic markets and surrounding locations. We look forward to broadening our offerings to current and future VPLS clients.”
