The Definitive Guide To Dallas Colocation

We’ve been finding data centers for our clients since 2007. whether is was a spreadsheet, a sheet of paper or even our homegrown filemaker database, we made sure everything we learned ended up in our new database. we track data centers globally and can tell you about data centers that don’t show up in most online databases. the list below contains the more enterprise data centers but if you’d like something else, talk to us or fill out the form below.

 

Cologix

Cologix has 2 facilities in Dallas. Their Carrier Hotel and their mission critical datacenter. Using either facility, you can reach AWS, Azure and Softlayer via Direct Connect. This would allow for a particularly robust multi-cloud setup with a colocated in-house cloud. 

Our take. They are in the Informart building which gives them excellent access to networks. The specs on their 2 facilities puts them in the class of mission critical and so this is well worth checking out if you want mission critical colocation with connectivity out to the main public cloud providers.

Databank

While you may have never heard of them, they offer services that are mission critical, massively redundant and secure. They appear to spare no expense when it comes to redundancy, certifications, staffing, security and processes. They specialize in purchasing existing (highly) secure sites and transforming them into very hardened data centers for Enterprise users.

Digital Realty

You get much value for your IT spend with DRT. They offer flexibility in their power density which allows you to save money if you aren’t cramming multiple blade chassis into your rack. Although you can cram a bunch of blade chassis into your rack if you want to. They feature excellent interconnection options and they have extremely robust infrastructure.

QTS

QTS is known for their mission critical and large facilities. They offer colocation and a full suite of managed services that include cloud, disaster recover and traditional managed hosting services.

Having the full suite of services also means that you can get out of the self managing business and have someone else completely take over their environment.

Flexential

ViaWest has recently merged with Peak10 after acquiring iNetU. They offer colocation, HIPAA compliant cloud and a full suite of managed services. 

Our Take: The ViaWest product suite is broad but with solid execution due to some strategic acquisitions. ViaWest has long held excellent datacenter properties in top markets. Peak10 offered robust facilities in smaller US markets while iNetU offered mission critical public and private cloud services with a specialization around HIPAA compliance.
