Texas 2 Data Center Grand Opening a Success

Texas 2 UPS room

We were delighted to have around 100 guests join us as we officially celebrated the grand opening of our Texas 2 data center last Thursday evening. Everyone enjoyed poke, shrimp and grits, and a salsa and queso bar (in true Texas fashion) as well as tasty hors d’oeuvres. The majority of guests participated in guided tours of the data center and visited the data halls, mechanical plant, office space and learned about the facility’s redundant infrastructure and security features.
