Colocation provider Fibertown has added an energy-sector company as a tenant at its new data center in Houston. the company said today. Black Stone Minerals, which leases minerals to exploration and production companies, will move its mission critical IT systems from an in-house data center to Fibertown’s 50,000 square foot Houston facility. With data center commissioning expected to conclude later this month, customer installation will begin in early July.
“One of our strengths is working with growing businesses toward designing scalable, flexible colocation options that meet both current and future needs,” said Brandon Perryman, senior vice president at Fibertown. “We were able to address a full range of future growth scenarios with Black Stone and are thrilled to welcome them as our newest customer.”
“Fibertown’s offerings were highly competitive with other top tier providers,” said Allan Skov, CIO at Black Stone Minerals. “Ultimately, it was Fibertown’s willingness to listen to our needs and develop a solution that addressed those needs that convinced us they were the partner we could work with for years to come.”
Fibertown is a colocation and business continuity specialist based in Bryan/College Station Texas, about 100 miles northwest of Houston. Its new space is located in Digital Realty’s Datacenter Park Houston. Fibertown plans to grow into three pods of Digital’s turn-key space in Houston, representing 30,000 square feet of raised-floor space.
