Oct 15, 2020 | Posted by admin

Stream has officially launched its data center campus in Goodyear Arizona, which is West of Phoenix.

The building will start with 4.5 MWs of critical power and can expand to 40 MW. The building is the first of five 40 megawatt buildings on the campus.

Stream Press Release on October 15, 2020:
Phoenix, AZ – October 14, 2020: Stream Data Centers, an industry leader in providing wholesale colocation, build to suit, site selection and powered shell data center services, is proud to announce the commissioning of the new Phoenix I facility, a 418,000 square foot hyperscale data center in Goodyear, Arizona.  Phoenix I is the first of five buildings planned for the new 157-acre campus in the West Valley. After all phases are complete, the Goodyear Campus will spread 2 million square feet of mission-critical capacity across five buildings all supported by a 350 MW onsite Arizona Public Service Electric Company (APS) substation, on the region’s largest multi-tenant data center campus.

Goodyear is the fastest growing data center hub in the Phoenix metro area, which itself stands as the fastest growing data center market in North America. Stream’s freshly commissioned turnkey hyperscale data center offers cloud providers, Fortune 500 companies, public sector and global enterprises the ideal combination of assurance of supply, fast deployments times, best-in-class fiber connectivity options and the region’s preferred utility provider, APS.

Stream’s investment in a massive 350 MW APS substation delivers reliable, low-cost energy coupled with the Phoenix market’s low natural disaster risk and a highly favorable tax incentive to deliver outstanding availability and Total Cost of Ownership to clients. The Arizona State Computer Data Center Program allows exemptions to be applied to a myriad of items from monitoring software to servers. This ultimately reduces the total costs that data center users would typically face when establishing a presence in this region.

“Over our 21 years serving global enterprise and hyperscale providers, we’ve seen increasing focus on deploying in markets with smart tax incentives. On a large deployment, our customers can spend several hundred million dollars in IT equipment and infrastructure,” says Rob Kennedy, Stream’s Co-Managing Partner. “Data center-friendly markets like Goodyear give our customers access to favorable tax incentives, highly skilled workforces and stable operating environments where they can deploy with confidence.

“Once again, I’m proud of the great work completed by our internal and external teams, including our construction partners and supply chain providers, who overcame the challenges from the global pandemic to deliver a world-class facility in Goodyear,” states Chris Kincaid, SVP of Construction. “Additionally, working alongside the City of Goodyear was a great experience, as their ongoing partnership allowed us to complete the first phase of the project on schedule during an otherwise challenging year.”
