Compass Datacenters Completes Franklin Facility

In just six months Compass Datacenters has completed the stand-alone data center and handed it off to the customer, Windstream Hosted Solutions. Through use of their Truly Modular™ Architecture, Compass a Dallas-based company has planted firm roots in our community.

“With only six months from groundbreaking to delivery, this brings the concept of just-in-time-delivery to data center facilities, enabling a customer to take delivery of their new standalone facilities on a timeline that was never before possible,” said Chris Crosby, CEO of Compass Datacenters. This is a fraction of the time normally spent on such a development he explained. Affordable cost allows business to locate where it was not possible due to cost restriction in the past.

The centerpiece of Compass’ patent-pending design is the CompassPod™, which provides 10,000 square feet of columnless raised floor space supported by 1.2 MW of electrical power with 2N power distribution. The facility delivers a PUE of 1.2 – 1.5 or lower at loads as low as 25 percent. CompassPods are contained within, and protected by, the CompassStructure™, a hardened, energy-efficient, highly-secure structure for the facility’s mission critical IT systems. The CompassPowerCenter™ provides the UPS (2N) and switchgear (2N) equipment required to ensure uptime and reliability. Each facility includes a dedicated CompassSupport™ module that provides to meet the needs of operational staff and logistics for data center operations, including a security center, lobby, office space, loading dock, break area and restrooms.
