The COVID-19 pandemic that swept through the world in 2020 forced millions of employees to work at home. A new demand was put on data centers nationwide, including Honolulu-based DRFortress, the largest carrier-neutral data center and cloud marketplace operating in Hawaii.
In response, DRFortress announced today at ITW 2020 that it has launched an expansion project driven by a surge in customer demand for connectivity, cloud and CDN services throughout Hawaii and the Pacific. Once completed, DRFortress will be the largest data center in Hawaii, in comparison to similar-sized providers.
The expansion will include the addition of 130 cabinets bringing a total of more than 600 cabinets for lease and a completed space of 55,000 square feet. The additional capacity will accommodate not only the data center demands of its clients but also support the requirements needed for the much anticipated 5G technology.
“This represents our third expansion in Hawaii and we are proud to offer our world-class facility at competitive rates for our valued customers and channel partners,” states Fred Rodi, President and Founder of DRFortress.
For 14 years, DRFortress has been meeting the data center needs of Hawaii’s enterprises, content companies, system integrators, carriers, wireless service providers, cable companies and ISPs. DRFortress provides customers customized high-end, resilient, reliable, environmental-friendly, next-generation solutions to meet their data-intensive business requirements, enabling them to focus on their core business.
The expansion is expected to be completed and ready for service in Q4 of 2020.
