Data Foundry, which operates major data centers in Austin and Houston, Texas, is beginning construction on a huge new facility in Houston.
Data Foundry’s newly planned Houston 2 data center is a 350,000 square foot facility being constructed in North Houston’s Greens Crossing district. The state-of-the-art data center will provide a choice for premium data center services to companies within the greater Houston metro area. With capabilities for 60 megawatts of power, the facility will have a chilled water-cooling system, a 185mph wind rated structure and will offer carrier neutral network access to more than 10 On-Net fiber carriers.
“A number of our Houston-based customers have been asking for us to construct a Texas 1 style facility in Houston,” said Edward Henigin, CTO at Data Foundry. “We are excited to mark the beginning of construction of Houston 2 and we expect to have this facility fully operational by the first quarter of next year.”
