Alpheus Completes Expansion of Premier Data Center in Austin

Facility tours and open house to highlight Alpheus’ newest, world-class data center facility

AUSTIN, Texas – April 22, 2014 – Alpheus Communications, a leading provider of Texas metro-regional fiber and networking solutions, has completed a significant expansion of its world-class data center in downtown Austin, located at 1905 E. 6th St., just blocks from I-35 and less than 2 miles from the state Capitol building. This latest expansion is driven by demand for premier data center space from companies building public, private and hybrid cloud environments requiring 100-percent uptime and fiber connectivity.

To showcase the state-of-the-art, SSAE-16 compliant facility, Alpheus is hosting an open house on Thursday, April 24, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the 6th Street location, complete with data center tours and refreshments.

Alpheus’ 6th Street data center offers diverse fiber routes and connections to more than 75 carriers, and is one of several best-in-class data centers that Alpheus operates in Texas, all of which have fully redundant critical infrastructure. The facilities are on-net to Alpheus’ deep metro fiber Texas footprint that serves some of the fastest-growing markets in the U.S., including Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston and San Antonio.

The portfolio of Alpheus data centers is especially valuable to customers building cloud applications and delivering primary, backup/redundant data centers and fiber network services from a single provider, enabling them to streamline management of their resources.

In addition to serving many enterprise business customers, for the past two years Alpheus has provided network services and Internet connectivity from its 6th Street hub to the legendary South by Southwest® (SXSW®) entertainment event.
