Web hosting and data center operator Quasar Data Center announced on Friday it is expanding its existing data center in Houston, Texas by 12,000 square feet of prime colocation space.
Quasar Data Center says it is currently seeking an anchor tenant for its downtown Houston data center.
The data center operator will provide enterprise class services for clients, such as N + 1 infrastructure and 24-hour support and security, around the clock physical and remote access, and high density power configurations up to 10KW per rack.
The carrier neutral data center features connectivity to most major carriers and private space that can be customized and built to suit.
“The data center is the backbone of any company operating in the digital economy today,” said Casey Jones, vice president of operations at Quasar. “Quasar has Microsoft, Linux, Solaris, Citrix, VMware, and Checkpoint certified technicians and supports physical hardware as well as virtual environments utilizing VMware and Xen products.”
Quasar has dual CenterPoint Energy power grids that supply 13.7 MW to the building. Meanwhile, the building’s windows are rated for winds over 250 mph, and the demising walls are built from floor to ceiling.
Originally built in 1983 as a data center hotel by AT&T and Verizon, the data center offers disaster recovery assistance to businesses in the Gulf Coast area.
Quasar has proven itself as a reliable, hardened data center that can withstand any natural disaster.
Quasar provides a wide range of services out of its data center, including colocation, web hosting and managed services, IT professional services and network consulting, cloud computing, virtual networks and remote business, and business continuity and disaster recovery.
Quasar has attracted many top companies and communications carriers including AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, AboveNet, TW Telecom, Level 3, NTT, Cogent and others.
