The Planet to Celebrate Grand Opening of Eighth Data Center

June 11, 2009 by  

The PlanetWebHost ToolsHOUSTON – The Planet, the global leader in IT hosting, today announced it will host a ribbon-cutting event at its newly constructed data center in the north Dallas suburb of Plano, Texas. The event, scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 16, will include remarks from The Planet Chairman & CEO Douglas J. Erwin and Plano City Manager Thomas H. Muehlenbeck. Tours of the 106,000-square-foot, environmentally friendly facility will be offered.

The new data center – the company’s eighth – uses the latest modular cooling technology from Turbine Air Systems (TAS), with high-efficiency, water-cooled chillers that eliminate the possibility of an interior water leak. Colocation, private racks, and Northstar Managed Hosting™ services will be offered in the new facility, which brings The Planet’s total data center raised-floor footprint to 224,000 square feet. Space is also available for a Business Continuity Center, which provides office space for customers requiring a disaster recovery base of operations during an outage.

“We’ve received substantial interest in our new highly efficient facilities from customers looking to expand their IT infrastructure capabilities,” said The Planet Vice President of Facilities Jeff Lowenberg. “This new space enables us to accommodate the rapid colocation market growth we’ve seen in the Dallas area, and we invite customers, prospects and partners to celebrate another significant step forward in The Planet’s expansion.”
