TF Powers broke ground on a 14,000 SF expansion of the Dakota Carrier Network facility in Fargo, ND. The project will be completed toward the end of 2018.
The expanded co-location data center is being constructed with “Fort Knox”-like specifications to match DCN’s data centers in Bismarck and Fargo. The data centers are carrier-grade hardened facilities able to withstand F4 tornadoes with winds up to 200 mph, along with N+1 redundant power and cooling systems. State-of-the-art security will be incorporated throughout the data center, including multiple levels of security, biometric fingerprint scanners, personalized combination locking cabinets, and 24/7 monitoring with a closed caption TV video surveillance system.
TF Powers Construction expects to complete the project in late 2018.
