Hyperx will open a new data center in Dallas, Texas, where it already operates out of a former Dallas police station, Vice News has learned.
The new facility will include up to 100,000 square feet of space, and will be owned by the company that operates Hyperx cloud and services provider, which acquired the Dallas-based company in 2013.
The company has announced that it is bringing the Dallas facility to the company’s Dallas headquarters.
The Dallas facility, dubbed Cybersecurity Dallas, will offer the company a new location, including a larger data center and a more secure network, and a new CEO, said a company spokesperson.
The Cybersecurity Center will be a center for cybersecurity and analytics for customers and partners, as well as a place for the company to develop and accelerate new solutions, said the spokesperson.
“This is a great opportunity for our customers and customers’ partners to be a part of this transformation,” said James McWilliams, CEO of Hyperx, in a statement.
Hyperx already operates four data centers in Dallas and plans to expand its Dallas footprint with up to 50,000 sq. ft. of new space.
“We are proud to be the new home for Cybersecurity Austin, a Dallas-area headquarters for our cloud services,” McWilliams said.
In addition to the new Cyber Security Center, Hyperx is also looking to expand to a second data center, said McWilliams.
“As a cloud provider, we’re committed to helping our customers stay ahead of cybersecurity threats, and we are excited to be adding more offices to our Dallas office,” McWilliam said.
Dallas, TX-based Hyperx was founded in 2002 and was acquired by the investment group of Texas-based cloud technology firm CloudFlare in 2016.
It currently has two data centers, one in Dallas.
The Cybersecurity Department will be led by Michael Cappella, who will oversee Cybersecurity Operations, and he will oversee the Cybersecurity Program and will oversee cybersecurity and security operations.
In the past year, the company has opened a new Dallas data center.
Hyper X has also launched a cyber security research and development center in San Francisco, and it is now a cloud services provider.
