HP consolidated 85 of their international Data Centers down to six -- two each in Atlanta, Austin, and Houston -- saving over $1 billion annually. The three Data Center locations were chosen based on availability and affordability of space, power, and network bandwidth, as well as a lower probability of impact from natural disasters.
In 2009, EDS expanded the data center to 404,000 square feet with four data halls that each have 40,000 sqft of floor space.
Building 2 is a 180,000-square-foot that includes two rooms of 25,000 of raised floor. The facility is designed to allow ease of future expansion up to 200,000 square feet of raised floor in a two-level configuration adjacent to the central support core for a total of 600,000 gross square feet.
