Green House Data has announced its entry into the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex with the addition of a Dallas-based cloud and disaster recovery data center.
The facility brings Green House Data’s national footprint to ten data center sites within nine geographic regions, spanning the Pacific Northwest, Western, and Central USA, Southeast, and East Coast.
“Dallas has been a target expansion site for us due to business density and growth metrics,” said Shawn Mills, CEO and president, Green House Data. “As one of the largest metros in the United States, Dallas is home to many oil and gas, technology, healthcare, and finance organizations, all of which are well-served by the Green House Data model of high-touch, highly compliant hosting.”
Green House Data has long used cloud nodes to expand its geographic reach and provide additional availability to customers. The company first expanded from its Cheyenne, Wyoming headquarters with the addition of cloud data center sites in Portland, Oregon and Piscataway, New Jersey.
The Dallas facility will further extend the resiliency of the gBlock Cloud platform, as well as expanding options for location-based workloads. In addition, Dallas sits within the Texas Interconnection, a wide-area grid that covers most of the state and is independently managed by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT).
“I expect enterprise organizations in the area to recognize the value in our service-focused, custom-built infrastructure solutions,” said Brian Parsons, Green House Data Director of Channel Sales. “A new data center site also opens up additional opportunities for the IT channel to take advantage of Green House Data’s geographic reach, engineering team, and highly available cloud resources.”
The company has been aggressively expanding in recent years, as marked by this year’s acquisition of Cirracore, an Atlanta-based enterprise cloud provider, as well as the purchase of FiberCloud in 2015, which introduced Green House Data to the Pacific Northwest. In keeping with this strategy, a recent credit line of $16,000,000 was announced as executives search for another acquisition target that fits alongside the company’s current and planned service offerings.
