A new data center company will be based in Dallas.
Compass Datacenters was formed by a former top officer of Digitial Realty, one of the country’s largest developers and operators of such projects.
Chris Crosby said Wednesday that his new firm will provide dedicated modular data centers for companies’ telecommunications and data processing and storage.
“The bulk of current investment in the U.S. is concentrated in only six markets with data center products that meet the needs of a very narrow set of customers,” Crosby said in a statement. “That approach ignores 98 percent of the potential overall market, which means there is a huge untapped market for an innovative company.”
Compass Datacenters said it will concentrate providing facilities for companies not located in the largest U.S. markets already served by large datacenter projects.
