EDS, a technology services provider, today announced plans to expand its Service Management Center in Tulsa.
The expansion will more than double the square footage of the data center to 440,000 SF, enabling additional operations and high-density server capacity.
Opened in 2003, the company’s current facility contains 76,000 SF of floor space. The expansion will bring the square footage up to about 156,000 SF. EDS is expected to begin construction in the third quarter of 2007 with completion targeted for 2009.
The facility also contains a redundant dual system design of mechanical and electrical systems that ensures continuous operation through maintenance activities and provides fault tolerant protection. With over 35 megawatts of emergency power, equivalent to powering more than 28,000 homes, and onsite fuel and water storage, this facility can self-sustain its “lights out” operations for up to 10 days.
