San Diego colocation provider Castle Access is building a new 88,000 square foot data center to meet growing demand from its enterprise clients, the company said this week. The facility will be located in Rancho Bernardo, Calif., and the company plans to bring the first 10,000 square feet of colocation space online by November 1.

The facility will be carrier-neutral and will offer multiple Tier 1 fiber carriers. Castle Access says the new data center will be supported by two 2-megawatt high power Caterpillar backup generators, two 5,000-gallon double-lined fuel tanks, dry-pipe pre-action fire suppression, a VESDA fire detection system, dual 12 kV power feeds and 880 tons of cooling capacity.
