“In its 12 years in the data center business, Stream Data Centers has leased or sold data centers to blue chip companies like Apple, Home Depot, AT&T, Sprint and Nokia. It has followed the opportunities the market has presented, and recent shifts in demand have led the company to focus on the wholesale data center market.
Stream Data Centersis part of Dallas-based Stream Realty, and has targeted the Dallas market for several of its developments of wholesale space – which it calls “private data centers.” The company broke ground on its first project in Richardson, Texas in March 2010. The 20,000 square foot facility, which included 10,000 square feet of data center space, was fully leased shortly after it was completed, and was sold in June to Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT.
Stream recently broke ground on its Richardson II private data center project, a 72,500 square foot facility that will house three 10,000 square foot pods, each with 1.125 megawatts of critical power capacity
“We’ve always been about delivering data center space to top quality companies,” said Paul Moser, co-Managing Director of Stream Data Centers. “In our first 5 to 6 years, we bought property and leased it to companies.
But soon the market changed, and Stream adapted its strategy. “In about 2006, when we saw no properties available to buy, we developed our first ready to fit data center,” Moser said. In the new model, Stream provided a “powered shell” in which customers could build out their data center environment.”
