Weeks after their launch, U.S-based data center consortium EdgeCore have announced that they will be building a data center in Richardson, a suburb in the north of Dallas, Texas. This move is made by EdgeCore with an intention of leveraging the area’s large power supply supporting many data center projects in the area.
EdgeCore say that Richardson as a location provides them with a strategic advantage in terms of resources. They also say that since the area already hosts many data centers, attracting business as well as talent will be much easier.
According to EdgeCore, the plan is to build 6 data centers across the U.S with a power capacity of 100MW to 200MW at each site. Since the North American region is experiencing a strong demand for data center facilities, the consortium say that they have already pumped in USD 2 billion worth of investment to ride on the growth wave.
Spread across a campus of 33 acres, EdgeCore say that the data center at Richardson will accommodate state-of-the-art facilities. The consortium also added that one of its members, Mount Elbert Capital Partners, is in the process of seeking zoning permissions for the data center.
In closing, Edgecore said that they have also acquired land in Mesa, Texas and plan to build a data center there as well.
