DataNovaX Readies Build-to-Suit Data Center Campus in North Texas

June 11, 2024
As an alternative to the heavily saturated Dallas-Ft. Worth market proper, one of the essential amenities of fast-growing Wichita Falls, home of the DataNovaX Pioneer Park data center campus, is an abundance of dark fiber connectivity.

DataNovaX, a Build-to-Suit (BTS) data center provider, is giving data center providers and hyperscalers an alternative to the crowded Dallas-Fort Worth market with its new Wichita Falls, Texas, data center facility. 

North Texas has various amenities that data center providers require. The region has an abundance of power options, dense data connectivity, and a high concentration of government, semiconductor, oil and gas, manufacturing, and fiber service providers. 

The company is now accepting clients for Pioneer Park in Wichita Falls, TX.

Ahmed Abdelghani, CEO of DataNovaX, said, "The area offers a wealth of resources and business incentives that make it an extremely welcoming environment for hyperscalers, data center operators, government, and large enterprises."


Fiber-Rich Region

One of the essential amenities of the Wichita Falls market is an abundance of dark fiber for connectivity.

Pioneer Park features various network providers, including Zayo, AT&T, Indian Nations Fiber Optic (INFO), Syntrio, Spectrum, Vexus, Comcell, Consolidated Communications, Crown Castle, Dobson Fiber, Hilliary Communications, MetroNet Fiber, Texas Lone Star Network, Uniti Fiber and Windstream.

These fiber options can support a mix of applications such as AI, high-performance computing (HPC), and data-intensive applications. Another key element of the fiber networks in the area is their diversity with 4X fiber routes: north, South, East, and west.

"While the Dallas Fort Worth area's fiber connectivity is at or near capacity, North Texas' Wichita Falls offers a world-class data availability zone with multiple metro and long haul fiber pathways and network providers within a 1-mile radius," Abdelghani said.

New Power Options

As data center providers expand into new markets, access to electric power is a significant consideration.

Data centers will require more significant amounts of power to support operations. According to a recent International Energy Agency (IEA) report, data centers could double their energy usage by 2026.

IEA forecast that data centers’ total electricity consumption could reach more than 1,000 TWh in 2026.

In its first phase, which will go live in December, Pioneer Park features 6 MW of power in a 37,000-square-foot facility equipped with N+1 systems redundancies.

The second phase will include a 550,000-square-foot facility with 150 MW power, ideally suited for high-density AI and HPC applications.



Pioneer Park is located off I-44 Central E. Freeway and Hwy 287 on Airport Drive and adheres to TIER III design, SOC 1 Type II, and ISO/IEC 27001 standards.

"With untapped, sustainable power resources from North and West Texas and many metro, regional and long-haul networks within a mile, Pioneer Park offers the scalability and high computing capacity required for today's growing data needs," said Abdelghani.
