Data Foundry, a premier colocation data center provider, recently announced the construction of a new data hall, offering 27,000 square feet of white space and 4MW, as an addition to the company’s 350,000-square-foot master-planned Houston 2 data center campus in the Greenpoint district. As demand for data center space, low latency and cost-efficacy in the Houston area grows, this project delivers greater capacity to customers and is expected to be ready for customer deployments in Q4 2019. 

With the growth of IoT-enabled technologies and data science in the local marketplace, Houston’s booming healthcare, energy and manufacturing sectors are seeking increased data center space that is close to the markets they serve. 

Data Foundry’s Houston 2 data center is the facility of choice for companies in the area due to its diverse utility feeds, 185 mph wind-rated infrastructure and elevation above the 500-year floodplain. The facility acts as a sanctuary for companies’ critical IT infrastructure, enabling continued operation even throughout Houston’s worst weather events. For instance, during Hurricane Harvey, tenants never lost power or network service and enjoyed 100 percent uptime with no flooding.
