HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2015) - Data Foundry is delighted to announce their Grand Opening Celebration of Houston 2, a 350,000 SQ. FT. purpose-built colocation data center. Multi-sport Olympian Carl Lewis, Representative Senfronia Thompson and Mayoral Candidate Sylvester Turner are keynote speakers for the special event, scheduled to take place on Thursday, October 8, 2015 in North Houston. 

These distinguished speakers will highlight Data Foundry's investment in revitalizing the Greenspoint District, which has become identified as Houston's "Tech Corridor." The opening of Houston 2 is also creating employment opportunities for technical talent from local colleges, including the University of Houston.

Houston 2 is a carrier-neutral data center owned and operated by Data Foundry. This new facility provides colocation, managed services and dedicated office space to businesses requiring uptime, connectivity, and room for growth. Houston 2 is the Company's second data center in Houston, and it was built as a response to businesses voicing their need for a premium data center in the Houston metroplex.

"Data Foundry's brand represents our history of great customer service and premier colocation data centers, so it was natural for us to expand our footprint in the nation's fourth largest city and address the unprecedented customer demand," said Edward Henigin, Chief Technology Officer of Data Foundry. He added, "We're thrilled that the Houston market recognizes the quality that we offer and is buying our services at a rapid pace."

Data Foundry has extended personal invitations for this event to their customers, partners and local leaders. Guests will have the opportunity to tour Houston 2 during the celebration, to see firsthand what makes this purpose-built data center so exceptional.
