Great Disaster Recovery Location: Check Out Low Cost Hydropower in Central Washington
A Cyxtera data centre built to maximize security, resilience utility and spend, the Moses Lake data centre in Central Washington that provides colocation solutions and access to multiple network providers including diverse fibre access to the CenturyLink network. This remote data centre takes advantage of free air cooling and hydropower, in a low risk location that makes it an ideal spot for disaster recovery and non-latency sensitive workloads.
The Moses Lake facility taps the abundant hydroelectric power available in Central Washington to provide more than 85 percent of the utility power supplied to this facility-making it not only a low carbon footprint hosting solution, but also one of the most cost-effective colocation options in North America. The data centre will have an initial 5 megawatts but will ultimately support up to 80 MW of IT load.
