Houston Data Centers
Researching data centers in Houston?
Did you know that Hurricane Ike was the third most destructive hurricane to make landfall in the United States and the most intense Atlantic storm of 2008? Ike caused more than $24 billion in damages, making it the costliest hurricane since Katrina.
In the aftermath of Katrina, businesses struggled to keep their IT operations up and running, but diesel fuel shortages caused many, including some large telecommunications carriers, to go dark. Although colocation providers in Houston weathered Ike well, the chances of them experiencing significant downtime are all too likely. Businesses that require 100% Uptime should seriously consider the risks posed to data centers in Houston.
In addition to the risks associated with hurricanes, Houston data centers also pay some of the highest energy prices in the West. At more than $.10 per kilowatt hour, the cost for a data center in Houston becomes prohibitive. And because Houston relies on power produced from non-renewable fossil fuels, the cost for electricity is only expected to increase.
