Two Texas providers, Alpheus Communications and Core NAP, announced expansions of their data center networks last week. Here's some additional details:
- Alpheus Communications is opening a new 5,000 square foot data center in Houston. The new raised floor facility will serve enterprise colocation customers and will include high-density power and hot air containment systems. "This Houston facility completes the initial phase of our planned network of Texas data centers, complementing similar data centers in Austin and Dallas, all of which are interconnected by Alpheus' fiber optic network," said Chuck Sweeney, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Alpheus is a joint venture between El Paso Corporation, a fortune 500 energy company, and Genesis Park, LP, a regional, Houston-based private equity firm.
- Austin-based Core NAP has completed the expansion of usable raised floor data center space from 7,500 square feet to 10,000 square feet and an expansion of infrastructure support space to a total of 5,000 square feet to meet increasing customer demand. Core NAP has also moved its corporate headquarters to Research Park Place at 12515 Research Boulevard, Suite 100, Austin, Texas 78759. The company is leasing 5,500 square feet of office space in the building to house its executive and sales teams plus new disaster recovery office space for customers and conference room capacity for business meetings.
