learview’s Central Texas Data Center is the only Tier III data center centrally located offering Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, and Austin colocation. Located in Waco, Texas, the facility is a re-purposed Cold War era nuclear fallout shelter that provides an elite level of physical security that is rare in the commercial data center market. This prime location falls within a 150 mile radius of Dallas, Austin, Houston, and San Antonio- enabling multiple paths for data replication in both production and disaster recovery business models. The facility encompasses 34,000 square feet of critical IT space and features the largest concentration of enterprise IT accessible fiber for 80 miles in any direction. Housing 100% of the metro fiber operators and 60% of the long haul fiber providers along the I-35 corridor, our Central Texas Data Center is the leading network access point for the region. Network latency readings have been recorded at less than 1.5 milliseconds from both Dallas and Houston POPs.
The Central Texas Data Center is optimally located in close proximity of multiple highway routes to enable accessibility in the event of hurricane, national airway interruption, or other disaster. It is located on a separate part of the power grid from other major Texas metroplexes, providing an operational advantage during rolling blackouts and power generation system failures. It features a true 2N power standard with dual redundant power paths from generator to cabinet facility and incorporates dual transformer commercial power feeds. The facility’s hardened security environment features a layered security protocol that includes biometric authentication, access key cards, and DVR camera surveillance. These security measures complement a Network Operations Center staffed by experienced IT professionals providing vigilant monitoring and remote hands support 24x7x365.
