Fortrust expanding its data center

Fortrust recently announced plans to add 33,000 square-feet of raised floor space to hold server racks, rack cabinets and other data center storage devices to its data center on the outskirts of Denver, Colorado, Data Center Knowledge reports.

The company’s colocation facility will boast approximately 80,000 square-feet of raised floor space when the project is complete.

The expansion comes as the result of a project the company recently completed to evaluate plans from a variety of regional engineers. The program involved asking engineers to design a data center expansion of 60,000 square-feet of raised floor space while adding new power capacity to the facility and improving the data center’s power usage efficiency ratio.

“The new design for our upcoming expansion allows for our customers to expand with the most technologically advanced and efficient environment to colocate their IT infrastructure and protect their data,” Steve Knudson, CEO for Fortrust, told the news source.

Building data centers with the most sophisticated power systems available is becoming popular as more companies face higher consumption rates in the data center. Recently, China Unicom constructed a new facility in Los Angeles using some of the most advanced construction technologies available.
