Stream Data Centers has secured a sizeable tenant in its new Houston data center at the Woodlands, only a short time after completing construction. The unnamed tenant is a multinational corporation leasing one of the three available Private Data Center (PDC) Suites. Each PDC suite has independent power and cooling infrastructure, delivering 1.125 megawatts of critical load, expandable to 2.2 megawatts across 10,000 square feet of space

In addition to using the facility for data storage, the customer is also outsourcing its mission-critical IT infrastructure operations to Stream Data Centers. The PDC Suite also provides tenants with plug-and-play disaster recovery office space, redundant private telecommunications rooms and a private utility yard.

“This response to our recently commissioned Private Data Center demonstrates the strong demand for enterprise quality data center space in the Houston area,” said Paul Moser, Co-Managing Partner of Stream Data Centers. “We look forward to providing exceptional service to this new customer.”

Located in a suburb north of Houston, the 74,901-square-foot data center is built with a 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration, delivering dual feed power from separate substations. Construction began in August of 2012. The carrier-neutral facility has access to eight fiber providers through diverse, private fiber conduits, and offers seven days of onsite fuel storage.

The Stream Private Data Center is located 70 miles from the Texas coast, outside of the 500-year floodplain, away from railways and flight paths, and it has been built to withstand 185-mph wind and uplift. It has also been designed to achieve a LEED Silver Certification.

Stream Data Centers also has facilities in Dallas, San Antonio, Denver and Minneapolis.

  1. Looks like an awesome data center with a great design. Thanks for posting.

  2. Is Stream focusing strictly on wholesale opportunities or also retail data center business?
