Everything’s Bigger in Texas
If you haven’t heard by now, INAP recently began construction to expand our main Dallas data center.
In fact, our CEO Pete Aquino even laid the first floor tile in what will be the newest data hall in our facility.

While we are excited about our expansion in the Dallas market, our new space also provides some big advantages for your infrastructure needs.
How Our Dallas Data Center Expansion Impacts You
INAP’s premier Dallas data center is already one our top facilities, offering a full range of services and solutions with 100 percent uptime SLA, enhanced connectivity and 24x7x365 support and security. And now it’s going to be even bigger and better.
Here are three ways our expansion will benefit your business and IT infrastructure.
1. More Space
By adding more space to our facility, we’ll have more room to accommodate your growing needs. When establishing your data center footprint, it’s important to think about the future. What’s the sense in investing your time and money in a solution that doesn’t align with your growth strategy?
The biggest benefit of adding more space means you’ll have more room to grow. The existing space in our data center had already reached more than 75 percent capacity, so by expanding, you’ll have the ability to plan ahead and utilize available cabinets as your business needs evolve.
Of course, with INAP you also have the option of adding to your density without increasing your physical footprint. So, regardless of the type of growth you require, if you find yourself in a position where you need to scale up quickly, we will provide personalized solutions for your unique business environment to have you up and running quickly.
2. More Power
You’re probably wondering how all that extra space will impact the availability of power. After all, an abundant supply of power is essential for businesses looking for reliable and high-performing solutions for their websites and applications.
Our Dallas data center already features state-of-the-art technology and power density up to 20 kW per cabinet. But, if we learned anything from the 90’s sitcom Home Improvement, we could always use more power.
This expansion will add at least an additional two megawatts of critical power to our overall facility, which gives you peace of mind knowing you won’t run out of juice when you scale up your footprint and power consumption. Plus, our fully redundant system ensures your network is always powered and you’re never left in the dark.
The bottom line: You’ll always have the power you need when you need it in our expanded data center.
3. Location, Location, Location
Nothing is changing about the physical location of our Dallas facility. It’s staying in the same building.
But by expanding, you have more opportunities to house your environment in our prime location and take advantage of one of the best IT infrastructure markets in the country.
The region offers lower costs on power and has a wealth of tech-savvy workers. Plus, the city is positioned in the middle of the country with easy access to both coasts and the Mid-West states, giving your business a strategic advantage and providing direct connections to other sites across the country via INAP’s backbone.
Expansion Without Compromise
INAP remains committed to providing the best data center services to power your business. Our new space allows us to expand without compromising the high-quality solutions and Tier III-type infrastructure with 2N redundancy and 99.999% guaranteed uptime that you’ve come to expect.
