Texas 1 Data Center – Open for Business

Jul 20, 2011 | Data Centers, News

Texas 1, the first purpose-built, carrier-neutral data center in the Central Texas region is now open for business!

The initial phase of the highly anticipated 130,000 SF data center is fully operational and the first customers are already moved in. As chronicled on our Construction Blog throughout the past year, Texas 1 is the first colocation facility on the 40-acre master-planned Data Ranch data center development in Austin, Texas.

Texas 1 offers secure colocation and disaster recovery solutions, including dedicated worksite recovery space. Its unique design includes independent and diverse power, water and network feeds with no single point of failure within any of these systems.

The site’s fully redundant power is fed from two independent substations with a dedicated feed enclosed in an end-to-end, concrete encased duct bank – a rare feature for data centers. The chilled water cooling system enables maximum cooling flexibility from standard single cabinet deployments to high density configurations. Even the most complex High Performance Computing (HPC) environments can be properly cooled and supported within Texas 1. With over 17 network carriers available, Texas 1 also provides customers a variety of carrier-neutral options for their network solution.

Multiple carriers are installed and live in the facility.

Data Center customers have already started deploying into Texas 1.

Colocation cabinets are available for customers.

Regardless of the size of your deployment, Texas 1 has room for you!

The entire Data Foundry team is proud to open the doors of Texas 1 and start serving customers. Contact us today for a tour of Texas 1.
