Oklahoma Firm Plans Data Vault
August 2nd, 2007 By: Rich Miller
It’s been a busy year for data center development in Oklahoma, with Google’s huge data center project in Pryor being followed by the announcement of the Chickasaw Nation’s planned data center in Norman and a major expansion of EDS’ facility in Tulsa. This week comes news that a Tulsa company called Titan Private Security Vault is building a 20,000 square foot data center in Sapulpa, Oklahoma (link via John Rath).
Titan started as a media storage business housed in a 4,800 square foot bank vault, which soon morphed into a colocation provider as well. The 4-acre Sapulpa expansion will be housed in a tornado-proof earthen concrete bunker, and is on a different electric utility grid from the company’s Tulsa facility.
Titan owner Jeff Hamra told NewsOK.com that the company is also working to expand to the Kansas City area in a mine converted to a data center.
