Data Foundry, Inc. Key Developments

Data Foundry Announces Opening of its Newest Houston Data Center

Data Foundry finished construction and commissioning of Houston 2, a 350,000 SQ FT, purpose built data center on their 18-acre campus in North Houston. This is the Company's second data center in Houston, and was built in response to the lack of premium colocation options for the Houston business community. Engineered for flexibility, Houston 2 can accommodate colocation requirements from single cabinet to large wholesale deployments, along with a choice of 11+ diverse network carriers, providing redundancy and greater competitive pricing. Designed for performance, the 60MW facility with dual 34.5 kV underground utility feeds can accommodate the most demanding HPC (High Performance Computing) environments. Houston 2 can withstand winds up to 185 MPH and the campus site was strategically chosen to be outside of the 500-year flood plain.

Nautical Control Solutions Chooses Data Foundry's Texas 1 for Colocation

Nautical Control Solutions has chosen Data Foundry, Inc. as its partner for colocation. This means NCS now houses its servers and networking equipment in Texas 1, Data Foundry's data center in Austin, Texas. FuelTrax, the NCS fuel management system, is compatible with all types of marine vessels, engines and marine fuels, in any combination -- either for a single ship or an entire fleet. FuelTrax hardware and software technologies monitor fuel consumption and links burn rate to GPS location and time. The data is instantly sent to the bridge where the crew can make real time throttle adjustments to minimize fuel usage. All data is sent every 15 minutes via low orbit Internet satellite to the FuelTrax' FuelNet shore-side Web portal at Texas 1. Texas 1 is Data Foundry's carrier-neutral, 250,000 SF data center in Austin. Powered by two independent substations and connected to 17 of the large network carriers, Texas 1 is one of the most redundant, connected, and secure data centers in Texas. Based in the Houston area, NCS decided to migrate its server infrastructure from a local site to Texas 1 to ensure the best in security and reliability.
