Downtown Dallas tower gets reboot as data center

Downtown Dallas’ 2020 Live Oak tower has just been renovated into a state-of-the-art data center by new owners Provision Data Services. Provision CEO Clay Hill said they’re looking to “Provide best-in-class infrastructure technology for Fortune 500 enterprises to small independents.” Because of its location, the building has access to redundant power sources and high-capacity fiber telecommunications, which means “There’s plenty of power and plenty of communications” says Hill.
