Colo4Dallas, a leading colocation service provider, announces Texas Industries, Inc has chosen the company as a strategic partner to provide support and security for its IT infrastructure.

“Our company is known for efficiency and innovation, and we looked for the same qualities in a data center. The team at Colo4Dallas was very responsive and receptive to customizing a solution for us,” said Len Brown, Director of IT Technical Services at TXI. Brown added, “We conducted an exhaustive search to find a colocation provider that could meet our specific needs and still be cost-effective. We wanted to ensure that we minimize or eliminate downtime, drive performance of our IT systems and keep mission-critical applications and hardware secure.”

Colo4Dallas is providing TXI with premium data center solutions to support its IT infrastructure needs. “Beyond offering what we believe is the highest quality facility and network in the area, we take great pride in making it easy for customers to do business with us,” noted Paul VanMeter, president and chief technology officer of Colo4Dallas. “TXI had specific requirements for their move into the data center, from cross connects and cabling to the provisioning of telco circuits, and we were happy to create a solution to meet their immediate needs and support future growth.” Colo4Dallas technicians used approximately 8500 feet of cat5e cable for TXI’s installation. Each partitioned section was tested and precisely mapped to ensure high performance and enable technicians to troubleshoot cable and expand the infrastructure as TXI’s needs change.
