Texan web hosting and data centre operator Quasar has announced that it is expanding its data centre in Houston by a total of 12,000 square feet in order to enhance its colocation capabilities.
It also claimed it was already seeking an anchor tenant in the area for its new data centre space.
The new centre will offer new enterprise class services for clients in the local area and across the country. These services include 24-hour support and full security, as well as N+1 infrastructure combined with permanent remote and physical access. In other words, giving clients full control over their operations.
The centre includes connectivity to the majority of major carriers and clients can customise it according to their needs, as well as control the building and configuration of their operation. Quasar therefore offers a completely customised service to the client.
The vice president of operations for the web hosting company, Casey Jones said of the centre, “The data center is the backbone of any company operating in the digital economy today.” He also went on to talk about what the company offers, “Quasar has Microsoft, Linux, Solaris, Citrix, VMware, and Checkpoint certified technicians and supports physical hardware as well as virtual environments utilizing VMware and Xen products.”
The centre will use Quasar’s CenterPoint Energy power grids. The dual power of the devices supple a total of 13.7MW to the building. It is also protected from the elements as the windows have a wind resistance rating of over 250 mph.
Quasar is determined to continue to offer a quality service. Its aims for 2013 involve appealing to a wider range of clients. The operations designated here allow the most customisation options of any of its services, so it hopefully appeals to a completely new sector of customers.
