    Can I visit the ServerMatrix DC?

    Hi I know its a very dumb question, actually Im not pretty sure if the SM DC is actually in Dallas, but since im form Mexico and I am a very happy customer from SM, actually im going to Dallas Texas for vacation in like 2 weeks, anybody knows if is possible to go for visit to the DC or offices of SM there?

    More than any for me in this business it would be very intersting to visit the DC for personal leraning, you know? And to take a quick look of how they work and how its all over there.

    I dont know if this question is too dumb sorry if YES.

    Just curiosity.
    (also sorry for my bad english)
    Cheers
    Dan

    I bet they would let you have a tour. They are part of The Planet who offers cage and rack rentals so they allow some access onsite.

    They have space across from the American Airlines center in Dallas off of I35. It is just down from the Infomart where they started and if I recall correctly they still have a large suite in the Infomart.

    I doubt they'd give anyone a tour because they'd reveal that all their equipment is from Wal-Mart... or that's what people at this thread are saying

    I'm sure you'll have no problem.

    Just contact them directly and inform them that you are going over so they could arrange a visit for you. I doubt you can just pop at the door and walk in just like that since the datacenter should be off-limits to unauthorised personnels.

    FYI No photos are allowed inside the DC floor. And Jeff Renis and the other SM sales reps are more then happy to give tours to people who pre-arrange it. I see them doing walk throughs the SM and our side of the DC all the time.

    Still bring a camera, maybe you'll get lucky. If no photos, well, you won't take any.
