October 1, 2014; Dallas, TX  – Carrier-1 Data Centers , one of the largest owned and operated data centers in North America, announces the opening of its Dallas data center.

“Owning versus leasing gives us the control to design, build and support every component of our customer's data center needs,” said Peter Pathos, Founder and CEO. “The building is in Dallas which is one of the most popular U.S. markets for data centers due to low power cost, low risk of natural disasters and a major hub in the U.S. for travel and superior network speed. We've spent millions of dollars to bring in brand new infrastructure and connect to all major internet carriers because we have learned that this is what the customer needs in a colocation facility. Customers require a secure environment with all the redundancies in place to maintain 100% uptime so that they may focus on their core business versus having to invest in building or running their own data center. With our design, we have the ability to deliver all of this and still have the most affordable rates in the market.”

“The Dallas-Fort Worth area sits on a major global network node,” says Ryan Tharp, the Dallas Regional Chamber’s research director. “There is a substantial concentration of fiber here, and that is certainly one of the main variables companies consider when making site location decisions here. In today’s global market companies need fast and reliable network access. With online data processing and other cloud services gaining momentum, the competition for server space is tight. New data center space provides opportunity and choice for everyone from small entrepreneurs to the multinational companies who call Dallas-Fort Worth home. The growing capacity in both physical space and broadband availability that new providers offer gives those companies the competitive advantage they need to compete in today’s economy.”

Equinix’s Dallas data center, located in the Dallas Infomart, serves as a major communications hub for the southern U.S. Customers choose from a broad range of network services from more than 95 providers. Carrier-1 has established a data center presence within Equinix and has built a diverse-path dark fiber ring between the two locations. Customers have over 10 Gig capacity of managed or unmanaged lit services to all major carriers via Carrier-1 transport. They may also easily interconnect directly to customers and partners in Equinix’s digital supply chain.

Carrier-1’s philosophy is to build new data center space to offer colocation at wholesale rates without sacrificing uptime, performance or security. The Carrier-1 customer has a cost advantage in the market and is able to utilize local resources such as direct access to any internet carrier and 24/7 facility support to gain a competitive edge.

Carrier-1 is Colocation and Cloud Ready.
