Netrality, a recently formed company spearheaded by entrepreneur Hunter Newby and Amerimar Enterprises, bought a 25-story data center and carrier hotel in Houston, Texas this February. The facility includes 1.1 million square feet and has space for 400,000 square feet of data center space.
Newby and Amerimar have invested together over the past 15 years, but this is the first initiative under their new branding as Netrality Properties. They intend to create more carrier-neutral meet-me space, creating additional incentive for groups that already cooperate to utilize the space.
Organizations already using the Texas data center include Internap and Exxon Mobil, some of the largest companies in the U.S. This fits in with previous speculations from Newby and Amerimar, who own carrier hotels in New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia
"[Houston is] the fourth largest city in the United States. Its proximity to Mexico and the Gulf make it a global gateway and strategic for us and our customers," said Newby.
