Alpheus Communications, a leading provider of Texas metro-regional fiber
and networking solutions, today announced the acquisition of
StratITsphere’s retail colocation business unit. The companies also
formed a strategic partnership that includes a long-term lease of data
center space at 1510 Primewest Parkway, Katy, Texas, which is part of
Houston’s Energy Corridor.
This latest acquisition expands Alpheus’ data center capacity in the
Houston market, adding more than 12,000 square feet of immediately
available data center space. StratITsphere will continue to operate its
93,000-square-foot data center with a focus on wholesale customers.
Alpheus’ new SSAE-16 compliant data center space is conveniently located
within 30 miles of downtown Houston, close to the interstate. From a
disaster recovery perspective, the data center is strategically
positioned outside Houston’s 500-year floodplain, is not in any
commercial flight paths, and is beyond a 20-mile radius of any chemical
or flammable plants.
“Due to our continued growth, we have filled our two existing Houston
data centers and needed additional space to meet the colocation demand
from our customers,” said Scott Widham, CEO of Alpheus Communications.
“This acquisition gives us immediate access to premier data center space
that we can bundle with fiber network services and dedicated Internet
access to provide enterprises the highest-quality infrastructure for
cloud solutions, mission-critical applications and disaster recovery
“StratITsphere’s data center is uniquely designed to provide customers
like Alpheus with a differentiated product in the Houston market,” said
Darin Cook, CEO of StratITsphere Data Center Solutions. “The partnership
with Alpheus allows us to focus on wholesale customers needing greater
than 5,000 square feet of data center space.”
Alpheus’ Energy Corridor data center is a state-of-the-art facility with
multiple carriers and diverse bandwidth options. Key features of the
data center include:
Alpheus recently expanded its Austin data center, driven by customers
deploying cloud solutions, requiring 100-percent uptime and fiber
connectivity. The additional Houston data center, combined with its
extensive fiber network infrastructure, positions Alpheus to offer the
highest-quality network and data center infrastructure to enterprises
deploying business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.
Alpheus’ data-center portfolio is especially valuable to multi-site
customers that prefer backup and redundancy from a single provider on a
single infrastructure, enabling them to streamline management of their
network and data center resources.
The new data center is 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
