Westland Data Center Near Houston Selects BCS as Facility Management Partner
Westland Data Center near Houston, known as The Bunker, has selected BCS to provide 24/7/365 data center management for its facility. BCS serves the needs of Fortune 500 companies coast-to-coast in the U.S. with 28 data centers, 6.8 million total square feet (1.8 million in raised floor), and 150 MW of data center critical power under contract.
BCS now performs continuous critical infrastructure management at this highly secured, “state-of-the-art” data center in the Montgomery, Texas suburb of Houston. The Bunker features 143,000 square feet of data center capacity and a four-story office complex in one mixed-use campus. The Bunker is a fiber-rich, carrier-neutral facility that houses critical IT applications and computing for Fortune 500 companies, including a number of global energy and IT services providers.
“Growth of our business, along with the requirements of some of our global customers, meant finding new approaches to critical facility management,” said Jymme Gomez, Westland Data Center president and owner. “We were looking for a provider who would operate our facility as if it were their own. BCS is that provider.”
150MW Capacity Under Contract
BCS now has more than 6.8 million square feet of data center space and 150MW of critical power under contract, including a large portion managing highly regulated, compliant, uptime-dependent environments. BCS would currently operate data centers for three of the world’s leading financial service companies.
“Being a Texas-based company, we are excited to add Westland Data Center to our expanding management portfolio,” said Danny Crocker, CEO of BCS. “Our business model, focusing solely on data center operations, allows us to perform best-in-class critical facility management at the right economics.”
BCS would use its “experienced people, proven processes and leading technologies” to operate and manage mission-critical facilities, freeing data center owners to focus on achieving their primary business goals. BCS claims that its customers typically achieve a 20% or more reduction in operating expenses due to BCS’s single-source, self-performance model of having BCS employees perform a minimum of 80% of all services.
