Four bits of data center news: one acquisition, two upgrades, and a collaboration in the AI space:

LightEdge has acquired a new data center property that brings them into the Minneapolis market for the first time. The facility features 76,000 square feet and 3.6 MW of capacity and sits in Chaska MN, which is about 20 miles southwest of the city center. It is part of Minnesota’s Data Center Tax Incentive program as well, which enables lower occupancy costs.

Tonaquint Data Centers is investing in an upgrade out in Oklahoma. Late last year they bought a single-client EdgeX data center in Oklahoma City from EdgeX. They now plan to recommission it as multi-client, deploying 2.5MW of critical IT load with the ability to expand to 12MW. The data center is on 4 acres near near the Will Rogers World Airport, offering 65,000 square feet of space.

1623 Farnam says it is adding three new generators to its infrastructure out in Omaha NE. That will make another 3MW of power available in support of hyperscale customers. The deployment has been in the works for a year and a half, and required three cranes to set up the main crane for the generator lift.

And DartPoints has a new partner in the AI space. They will be providing colo services for Virtuous AI at their facility in Greenville SC. Virtuous AI builds multi-modal models that learn a customer’s business and provide insights and enable better decisions. Dartpoints’ Greenville facility offers some 25,800 square feet of space in the Global Business Park just off I-85 to ths southeast of the city.
