Data Foundry, a leading provider of data-center colocation, managed and network services, engineered the 18-acre Houston 2 Data Center to provide colocation requirements from single cabinet to large wholesale deployments, providing the ideal infrastructure platform for PS LIGHTWAVE’s portfolio of services.
