CONROE, Texas, April 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consolidated Communications today announced a partnership with Stream Data Centers to offer business customers data storage, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions in a stand-alone, hardened, private facility located near Houston, Texas. A national data center developer and operator, Stream Data Centers completed construction of this purpose-built data center in 2013.

"We see a strong demand from our business customers in all regions for enterprise quality data center space," said Ed Butler, vice president of sales for Consolidated Communications. "This partnership gives us a leading data center offering for Houston-area businesses looking for a local solution and for customers in other markets who are seeking a geographically diverse option for their data needs."

The 74,901-square-foot data center includes three (3) Private Data Center Suites™ and 30,000 square feet of raised floor data center space. It is built with a 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration, delivering dual feed power from separate substations, and has seven days of on-site fuel storage. Consolidated Communications delivers a diverse, private fiber conduit directly into the facility.

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

The center also provides tenants with customizable maintenance and operations programs for their own infrastructure within a dedicated, fully independent Private Data Center Suite™. Each PDC Suite has independent power and cooling infrastructure across 10,000 square feet of raised floor data center space. The PDC Suite also provides tenants with redundant private telecommunications rooms and a private utility yard.
