With its tech-savvy population and established presence of data centers, Austin was an ideal choice for Hewlett-Packard’s addition. This venture aligns with a broader initiative to consolidate data centers, positioning Austin as a strategic hub for HP’s operations.

About the project

Hewlett Packard (HP) decided to take on the ambitious goal of consolidating their existing 85 data centers across the nation into six larger data centers in three U.S. cities. Due to their ease of access and relatively low chance of natural disasters, HP chose Houston, Austin, and Atlanta. In addition, Austin was selected due to its availability and affordability of space, power, and network bandwidth. 

The Austin centers were designed to be managed entirely remotely, called “lights out,” if necessary. They also utilize smart cooling technology, saving up to 25 percent. White space houses the HP servers supported by the service core. This service core comprises receiving, storage, de-trash, build-areas, and demarcation rooms. Design and construction were fast-tracked, allowing delivery of the buildings within a tight schedule.
