Building a Community within a Texas Disaster Recovery Facility

Confidential Financial Services Client | Data Center | San Antonio, TX


A financial client was enhancing their operations infrastructure in their region which required the construction of a new facility that would back up the primary one in the event of a large system failure. Integrated Design Group planned the six-acre site to enable up to four 1,125 kW “Turn-Key Data Center™” plus operational support functions including two large disaster recovery command centers. The facility has a small staff of 20 during normal operations and could handle a surge of over 100 in an event. The centrally located break room acts as the community hub to which all circulation and functions meet. The data centers include full 2N redundancy for the UPS and distribution, and an N+1 aircooled. chiller plant. Digital Realty Management Services provided design and construction management services with the opportunity to use the Digital Realty POD Architecture™, a prototype design created by Integrated Design Group for Digital Realty to ensure efficiencies of design, construction, and standardization of equipment and operation.
