Big wind? No power? No problem in Houston II data centerBig wind? No power? No problem in Houston II data centerhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=11422015-05-01T07:33:00Z2015-05-01T07:22:00Z

HOUSTON - Austin-based Data Foundry Inc.'s 120,000-sf data center has opened. Located in Greenspoint, the space is built on 18 acres and has the ability to expand to 350,000 sf if need be.

Named Houston II, the center features a variety of different security features including biometric hand scanners, military-grade exterior gates and 24-hour security.

The building has walls capable of withstanding up to 185-mile-per-hour winds, as well as backup generators, power supplies and cooling systems, so if anything had to be shut down, the facility is able to continue to operate.

It also features 60,000 sf of office space, showers, ready-to-eat meals and other measures to allow IT professionals to operate around the clock.

All this may seem a little excessive, but CTO Ed Henigin points out that if Data Foundry were to lose customer trust one time, it could mean the end of the company entirely.
