Data center operations company OnRamp has completed construction of its second Austin data center and will hold a grand opening celebration on March 20. The 42,000 square foot facility is the company’s third data center in the US.

“We are excited to open a second, enterprise-class Data Center in Austin,” said OnRamp CEO Lucas Braun. “We’re an Austin-based company, and a large percentage of our managed and cloud hosting and high security hosting services are delivered by our teams in Austin.”

Design of the data center began in fall of 2012, and OnRanmp worked with Square One Consultants to oversee the design, development and construction of the facility. The Austin II data center uses OnRamp’s Redundant Isolated Path Power Architecture to deliver 2N power to customers from utility to rack. The facility has the capability of delivering upwards of 30 kW per rack.

The data center is SSAE 16, SOC I Type II, HIPAA and PCI compliant, and will feature a separate area dedicated to HIPAA hosting for the healthcare vertical.

OnRamp is a hybrid services provider, offering cloud, managed services and disaster recovery services in addition to data center space. The facility will house several on-site teams of OnRamp engineers to provide what it calls Full7Layer Support, i.e. support across all seven layers of infrastructure. The facility is staffed 24/7 year-round.

In addition to two facilities in Austin, the company also has a facility in Raleigh, North Carolina. The company was founded in 1994 as an ISP, with a history rooted in secure connectivity that enables distributed computing.  It’s first colocation customer was added a year later, with managed hosting launching in 2000 and private cloud in 2007. The company today focuses on customers with sensitive data and hybrid solutions, offering a single point for cloud, managed services and compliant data center space.
