Texas-based Data Foundry (news) has opened the doors of its giant new Texas 1 datacenter in Austin. Phase one of the project is now complete, and customers are moving in. That brings 250,000 square feet online in central Texas in addition to their ADC and HDC facilities in Austin and Houston, respectively. They've been working on it for just over a year now.
Data Foundry talked with Telecom Ramblings about this project late last fall. They have been positioning the facility as ideal for disaster recover operations, as its location puts it outside the danger zones for natural disasters. It features 17 carrier networks, an underground power feed enclosed end-to-end in a concrete duct bank fed by two independent substations, and a chilled water system for cooling.
