BISMARCK -- Dakota Carrier Network, headquartered in Fargo, is expanding its Bismarck data center. The 30,000-square-foot expansion project will provide 12 times the current server floor space available at the center and will increase the center’s total space to 72,000 square feet.

DCN’s data center provides spaces companies can rent to store their servers and related equipment. DCN houses network infrastructure for many of North Dakota’s regional banks, all 54 critical care centers, all K-12 and higher education institutions, North Dakota National Guard, 911 dispatch centers, state radio, IT companies and commercial businesses.

The expansion project, which is expected to be completed by early 2017, was designed by TL Stroh of Fargo, while Capital City Construction, Electric Systems Inc. and H.A. Thompson & Sons, all of Bismarck, are providing contracting services. DCN has budgeted $6 million for the project and will take advantage of sales tax exemptions for the purchase of equipment and software for the facility provided by a bill passed last year by the North Dakota Legislature.
