Tonaquint Upgrades Recently Acquired Oklahoma City Data Center

Tonaquint, based in St. George, UT, announced it is upgrading the recently acquired EdgeX data center facility in Oklahoma City. Tonaquint acquired the Oklahoma City facility in November 2023. It plans to further enhance and expand it to build a market-leading facility.

Tonaquint is recommissioning the former EdgeX facility from a single-client environment to a multi-client one, initially deploying a minimum of 2.5 MW of critical IT load. With an expansion capability of up to 12 MW, the facility holds significant future upside and can deliver chilled water cooling for high-density workloads. Additional enhancements include a refreshed client reception area and meeting rooms.

“This state-of-the-art facility will be well-prepared for the demands of new clients and the increasing capacity requirements of AI workloads,” said Terry Morrison, COO and CTO of Tonaquint. “These enhancements further position this facility as one of the region’s most future-forward and resilient data centers.”

Located near the Will Rogers World Airport on a highly secure four-acre campus, the purpose-built Tier III data center is 65,000 square feet, with two 10,000 square feet of data halls. The facility is positioned for 100% uptime and can withstand tornado-force winds up to 310 mph. The data center provides high-density capacity and geographic optionality for all client workload types.

Tonaquint is a specialized data center provider offering cloud, colocation, backup, disaster recovery and network-as-a-service solutions to mid-market organizations through its facilities in the Mountain West and Southwest regions of the United States. The Oklahoma City acquisition is in addition to Tonaquint’s existing platform in Boise, Idaho and St. George, Utah.

Tonaquint was founded in 2008 in St. George, UT, and entered the Boise, ID, market in 2020 with the acquisition of Fiberpipe Data Centers, Inc.

In December 2022, DIF Capital Partners acquired Tonaquint for an undisclosed amount. DIF Capital Partners is an infrastructure fund manager with EUR 16 billion of assets under management. Founded in 2005, DIF manages mid-market investments, primarily in Europe, North America and Australia. With a team of over 225 professionals, DIF offers a unique market approach combining global presence with the benefits of strong local networks and investment capabilities. DIF is located in eleven offices in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Helsinki, London, Luxembourg, Madrid, New York, Paris, Santiago, Sydney and Toronto.

Tonaquint is taking client orders now, for delivery starting in April of this year.
