QTS Realty Trust, an international provider of data center, managed hosting and cloud services has purchased a 260,000 sq.ft. data center in Fort Worth, Texas from Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC). The facility was purchased for about $50 million and the deal was financed through QTS’ revolving credit facility.
QTS says that the facility is its second mega data center in the broader Dallas-Fort Worth-Irving market and will strengthen the company’s ability to serve Fortune 1000 enterprises as well as regional financial services, healthcare and technology companies. The facility is carrier-neutral with 12 carriers and is situated adjacent to a number of other large enterprise data center facilities.
QTS claims that the data center has 40,000 sq.ft. of built-out raised floor and 8 MW of gross power. Including adjacent land, the site can support a total of more than 300,000 sq.ft. of raised floor and 60 MW of gross power.
