About Houston

Five years ago, the Houston data center market looked dramatically different. Made up of mostly enterprise data center users at the time that owned and operated their own facilities, colocation users needing to be in Houston had to locate in either downtown or in one of the few colocation facilities located throughout the market. As the colocation market matured and Houston’s economy grew, data center operators delivered quality facilities and solutions to meet the demand.

Areas like Greenspoint, The Woodlands, and Katy have been recipients of the growth by major data center providers, including Digital Realty, CyrusOne, Stream Data Centers, Skybox Datacenters, and Data Foundry. Data center users find the Houston market as an acceptable place to house their data because of the friendly business climate, the increased colocation/cloud competition, and the maturity of the colocation market.
