(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – OnRamp, a Data Center operations company headquartered in Austin, TX, announced today that it is building a 42,000 square foot Data Center in Austin. The facility will be the company’s second Data Center in Austin. Design of the Data Center began in the fall of 2012 and will open in early Q4 of this year. OnRamp is building the facility to meet the growing demand for its services, which include high density colocation, cloud computing, high security hosting and disaster recovery services.
“We are excited to open a second, enterprise-class Data Center in Austin,” said OnRamp CEO Lucas Braun. “We’re an Austin-based company, and a large percentage of our managed and cloud hosting and HIPAA compliant hosting services are delivered by our teams in Austin.”
The Austin II Data Center will feature the highest levels of security, redundancy, reliability and infrastructure with OnRamp’s Redundant Isolated Path Power Architecture in place to deliver true 2N power to customers, from the utility to the rack. The facility is being designed for industry-leading levels of high density computing, with the capability of delivering upwards of 30kW per rack, contiguously. In addition, the SSAE 16, SOC I Type II, HIPAA and PCI Data Center will feature a separate high security area for HIPAA hosting.
OnRamp is working with Square One Consultants to oversee the design, development and construction of the facility. “We are pleased to be partnering with OnRamp to build a Data Center that accommodates the range of OnRamp’s services, from high density colocation to highly secure hosting, and that provides OnRamp the flexibility to grow well into the future,” said Square One President Kevin Fleming.
The announcement of OnRamp’s Austin II Data Center comes just one week after the company announced the opening of a Data Center in the heart of Research Triangle Park in Raleigh, NC. In addition to OnRamp’s Austin I and Raleigh Data Centers, the Austin II facility will house several on-site teams of OnRamp engineers to provide Full7Layer Support 24/7/365 for colocation, cloud computing, high security hosting and disaster recovery customers.

As one of Texas’ first Internet Operations companies, OnRamp’s history is rooted in providing reliable and secure connectivity that enables distributed computing.
