First and foremost, we want to thank you for being part of the ColoHouse Family. Please feel free to come in and say hello next time you are in the facility.
In light of recent events and the devastation in across Florida, Texas, and Louisiana, our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by Hurricane Iram and Harvey. We can only hope and pray for the safety of the residents and all of the rescuers, and the quickest possible recovery.
We are entering the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, and our team close monitors any potential threats we may be coming towards South Florida. The safety and well-being of our employees and customers, along with preparing our data center for any emergencies remain our top priorities.

Hurricane Irma Update
Over the last few days, our team has been working around the clock to ensure our data center up and running for our customers. During the storm, we had our technical team on-site and are happy to report the following
• ColoHouse Data Center never lost power due to our redundant FPL feeds.
• No customers were affected by the storm.
• The curfew has been lifted in Miami-Dade County as of September 12th, and our customers can now freely access our building.
Giving back to the community that has been so good to us is an easy decision. On July 27th, we invited the young ladies of CODeLLA to visit us. CODeLLA is a non-profit organization that teaches Latina girls between 9-13 to code and design. CODeLLA helps them explore their interest in science and technology. Most of these girls are first generation Americans or immigrated with their parents at a young age. They come from a variety of Latin American countries like Cuba, Chile, Columbia, Venezuela, Honduras, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, just to name a few.

What’s New at ColoHouse?
We have been working diligently over the past few months to ensure our data centers are working optimally. Here is a list of the updates we have completed in MIA I & II:
• New PDU installed for more power availability in MIA I.
• Going green – 3 new condensers have been ordered are being installed to improve cooling and power efficiency in MIA I.
• Keeping our promise: 100% of the support tickets submitted by our customers were addressed and resolved during the allotted time.
Looking towards the end of the year, we are still looking to make improvements throughout the data centers. This includes improving our Cold Aisle Containment and installing a 3rd HVAC in MIA II.
Again, thank you for your business, and don’t forget to stop in and say hello!
