Colocation provider FIBERTOWN announced on Wednesday it has expanded its 26,000 square foot data center in North Houston by opening a new data center pod within the facility.
First opened in October 2011, the Houston data center expanded the number of telecom carriers that are available at the data center earlier this year, including AboveNet, Level 3, Phonoscope, Sprint, Suddenlink, Qwest, TW Telecom, Verizon and Windstream.
With its portable method of deploying data center capacity, a modular data center design offers a more flexible and cost-effective alternative to the traditional data center model.
With this latest expansion, FIBERTOWN is now offering previously unavailable data center space to those mission critical businesses that require redundant colocation options out of reach of hurricanes but close enough for convenience.
With its modular design, FIBERTOWN’s North Houston data center has the ability to open new data center space as needed, allowing for complete scalability.
Data center solutions provider DSA Encore executed the expansion build seamlessly and within the time frame and budget that FIBERTOWN had requested.
“Critical business operations rely on Fibertown,” said Steve Friedman, CEO and managing director at DSA Encore. “We’re delighted that our completed expansion of this facility enables even more businesses in this important commercial and industrial area to benefit from the business continuity and disaster recovery services that FIBERTOWN offers.”
Founded in 1997, FIBERTOWN provides data center services, colocation and disaster recovery solutions in Houston and Central Texas.
The company’s North Houston and Bryan Tier IV data centers feature a modular design, which offer optimized efficiency, fault tolerant 2N power and cooling, 24-hour security, fully redundant multi-carrier Internet connectivity, and are SSAE 16 SOC 2 attested.
