Why Use Colocation Services?

Colocation provides peace of mind through uptime guarantees and frees up time and resources for companies to invest in their core business. Colocation data centers offer companies enhanced security, redundancy and connectivity by utilizing economies of scale. Data Foundry offers colocation solutions that accommodate companies with any size footprint, from 1/2 cabinets to private data suites. We own and operate premier, carrier-neutral colocation facilities in Austin and Houston, Texas with 24x7x365 support services provided by in-house staff.

No Outsourcing, Full Accountability

Unlike the majority of colocation providers (REITs), we maintain in-house certified technicians, engineers and electricians. We are operator-owned and led by veterans of the IT and Internet industries. We do not outsource to contractors, and we are 100% accountable for services and customer support.
