The Planet Engages CAPSTAR Commercial for Data Center Leasing

September 21, 2009 by  

The PlanetWeb Hosting ToolsHOUSTON – The Planet, the global leader in IT hosting, today announced the appointment of CAPSTAR Commercial Real Estate Services to lease its fifth data center in the Dallas Metroplex. The first of four 12,000-square-foot pods has been completed, providing environmentally friendly white-floor space that is complete and ready for leasing. CAPSTAR principals Trey Smith and Chris Taylor will manage leasing for the facility, which is located on Plano Parkway in the 190 Business Center.

The new data center – the company’s eighth – uses the latest modular cooling technology from Turbine Air Systems (TAS), with high-efficiency, water-cooled chillers that eliminate the possibility of an interior water leak. Colocation, private racks and managed hosting services will be offered in the new facility. Space is also available for a business continuity center, which provides office space for customers requiring a disaster recovery base of operations during an outage.

“We’ve received significant interest from North Texas companies looking to expand or outsource their data center facilities,” said The Planet’s Vice President of Global Sales Tom Blair. “Customers select The Planet based on the quality of our data centers and network, and this new space enables us to accommodate the rapid colocation market growth we’ve seen in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.”

“There is a shortage of large footprint colocation space in North Texas that offers robust power,” said CAPSTAR principal Trey Smith. “The facility provides colocation and IT infrastructure solutions for both local and national companies that are seeking to expand their core infrastructure or supplement their existing operations. The state-of-the-art facility and its central U.S. location will be attractive to many companies looking for colocation and turnkey data center solutions.”

A video preview of the facility is available on The Planet Web site at the following address:
