Denver area colocation provider Fortrust LLC 
says it is putting the finishing touches on a 20,000 square foot data center expansion 
, and already planning an additional phase of construction that will add another 60,000 square feet. The new space will feature a 36-inch raised floor environment backed by an N+1 power system with 2 megawatt generators and 750kVA UPS systems.
“We are seeing a large volume of traffic, as there is a shortage of power availability for enterprise data center space in and around the Denver area,” said Kira McManus, Sales Operations Manager at Fortrust, LLC. “Additionally, we are seeing an influx of west coast companies seeking a redundant location in Denver due to our low disaster related region and reasonable rates.”
Fortrust’s expansion isn’t the only sign of strong demand in the Denver market.
In its most recent investor call, Digital Realty Trust (DLR) said it had been able to fully lease its 82,000 square foot data center in Englewood 
, just months after it terminated the lease 
with the previous tenant, Ameriquest Mortgage. While lease terminations are never happy events, Digital Realty said it was able to re-lease the space at a higher rate than Ameriquest had been paying.
The new tenant in the Englewood facility has not been identified. But last month Qwest said it had opened an 85,000 square foot CyberCenter in the Denver area 
to meet growing demand for its managed hosting services.
