Stream Data Centers opened a new 74,000 square foot data center in Westover Hills to keep pace with customers’ growing use of web, apps and data collection services.
The center, located at 9550 Westover Hills Blvd. on the far West Side of San Antonio, is LEED Silver certified and is designed to withstand a 185 mile per hour tornado and other inclement weather.
The data center also has been equipped with other safety features, including backup generators and two electrical companies supplying power to its servers should one power source go down.
A spokesperson for Stream Data Centers said the new building doesn’t have any corporate tenants yet, but the company typically builds the center and then leases or sells server space.
Stream Data Centers, a Dallas-based company owned by Stream Realty Partners, has developed and operated more than 1.5 million square feet of data centers in Texas, Colorado, Minnesota and California. Its clients include Home Depot, AT&T, Nokia, Sprint and Apple.
The company also has data centers in Houston and Dallas.
Anthony Bolner, Stream’s managing director, said San Antonio is a good place to build a data center due to its stable weather, its educated workforce and dependable electric grid.
“The expanding needs of businesses across the country have made San Antonio the go-to place for data centers,” Bolner said.
Stream Data Centers held an open house on Wednesday afternoon. For more information on the center, visit their website.
