Texas has become the hot spot for enterprise data centers, attracted by the fact that the state had its own power grid and cost-effective electricity earlier than other major Internet markets. The growth has established a number of Texas cities as destinations for data center site location, with Dallas leading the pack. The early growth of the Telecom Corridor in Richardson also helped put the Dallas market on the map for Texas Data Center development.
Texas has a very robust supply of IT professionals and data centers are often located near the customer base to which they provide services. Whether they are internal customers or external customers, Texas has the right mix. With more than 26 million people, Texas also serves as home to more than 50 of the Fortune 500 companies. Combine these two and you can quickly understand why Texas Data Centers are so important.
Unlike the majority of the country, Texas’s economy has been growing over the last decade, thanks in large part to low taxes and low cost of living. What this ultimately means is more corporate growth in the form of existing company expansion, and more importantly to the rapid need for data center space, a large amount of companies relocating to Texas. In 2010, Texas ranked in the top ten for corporate relocations with more than 7,000 new businesses moving to the state, according to Site Selection Magazine. Robust job creation, a thriving oil and gas industry and a business-friendly environment all point to more activity for Texas Data Centers.
