Expansion Meets Growing Market Demand for Reliable Capacity and High-Availability Infrastructure
Houston, Texas – January 24, 2020 — Data Foundry, a premier colocation data center provider, announces the completion of an additional 27,000-square-foot, 4MW data hall on its 350,000-square-foot, master-planned Houston 2 data center campus in the Greenpoint district. The expansion was driven by Houston business growth and the subsequent demand for capacity, low latency and cost-effective networking from organizations across healthcare, energy, and manufacturing.
Noted as a top metro for economic growth potential and serving as home to the headquarters of 21 Forbes Global 2000 companies, the Houston business community’s trajectory of expansion has created a growing need for capable and scalable data center solutions.

Purpose-built to support power, security and IT requirements, Houston 2 delivers network reliability and diverse utility feeds, as well as a 185mph wind-rated structure and elevation above the 500-year floodplain. This offers enhanced protection against downtime and allows the facility to serve as a sanctuary for companies that rely on continued operation even throughout Houston’s worst weather events.
Also featuring an array of amenities including office space, a kitchen and showers, Data Foundry’s facilities effectively safeguard IT infrastructure and protect the teams that run it and the customers who rely on it.
