Why Dallas?

Dallas-Fort Worth ranks as the third-largest data center market in the world, according to Cushman & Wakefield.

The Dallas-Fort Worth data center market has grown steadily over the past five years, buttressed by a business friendly environment, comparative low cost of living, and one of the largest technology talent labor pools in the U.S. In addition to affordable power and access to renewable energy resources, companies are drawn by the region’s affordable real estate and aggressive tax incentives. Data centers in Texas enjoy state sales tax exemptions for essential item such as electricity and electrical equipment, cooling systems, emergency generators and network hardware.

The Texas Electricity Grid, ERCOT, is the only self-contained electric power grid in the U.S. that serves a single state. Businesses that colocate in the Dallas market take advantage of costs per kW that are significantly less compared to the national average, lowering the total cost of ownership. This is especially important as data center customers expand their footprints.

Texas is a national leader in electric sector decarbonization, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The state continues to add renewable power capacity, including wind and solar, presenting powerful opportunities for data center customers to achieve their sustainability goals.

Cloud, financial services, healthcare, insurance, technology, and telecom companies are attracted to Dallas for its advantageous geographic positioning. Dallas sits at the midpoint of several long-haul fiber networks in the central U.S., making it a vital hub for cross-continental data traffic.
