Data center operator Green House Data announced yesterday that it has expanded its modular data center in Cheyenne, adding with 3,000 square feet of new colocation space.
The SSAE 16, Type II data center, which opened its doors last December is one of the nation’s first 100 percent green data centers offering cloud hosting and colocation services, according to the company.
Green House Data specializes in building enterprise level hosting facilities that utilize 40% less energy than its traditional data center competitors — all while being powered 100% through renewable wind energy. The facility in Cheyenne utilizes data center design best practices for cooling, powering and facility management to offer high-availability service that today’s mission critical data, networking and computing equipment require. The company says it passes these energy savings on to its customers.
“We are excited to see the demand for green IT infrastructure growing so rapidly,” said Shawn Mills, president of Green House Data. “Businesses are benefitting by leveraging our investments in next generation energy efficient technologies and operational experience to lower their total carbon output, while, at the same time, lowering the amount they are spending to manage their IT.”
Highlights of the recent expansion of the facility include non-raised floors with ESD flooring, direct evaporative cooling system, energy efficient UPSs and expanded power and cooling capacity with up to 8KW per cabinet. The data center also offers managed servers, managed storage, dedicated infrastructure, disaster recovery and offsite backup.
