It’s no secret that Dallas is one of the country’s highest growing data center markets. The city was recently rated No. 3 among global data center markets by Cushman & Wakefield’s global Data Center Market Comparison.

It should also come as no surprise that as the old saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas! This includes the set of challenges such as unpredictable weather including tornadoes, hail and heavy rain, that Dallas can bring.
