Data Center Tour Series: The Planet

The Planet has 8 data centers located in the Houston – Dallas, TX area, as well as a London Data Center. The Texas data centers are SAS 70 Type II audited data facilities. The most recent, is the addition of a 106,000 sq. ft. collocation center in Plano, TX. On the technical front, the new data center uses the latest modular cooling technology from Turbine Air Systems (TAS), with high-efficiency, water-cooled chillers that eliminate the possibility of an interior water leak.
