Oracle Discusses its Utah Data Center

Oracle CIO Mark Sunday discussed the company’s new data center project in Utah in one of the keynote addresses at the Next-Generation Data Center. Sunday says the company chose Utah for its low costs for energy and real estate and business-friendly environment. Oracle is breaking ground this month in West Jordan, Utah and says the new data center will be more advanced than its Austin project. This video runs about 5 minutes, with a brief pre-roll ad from ZDNet.

An interesting bit of background: this project nearly wound up being built in Idaho. For additional video, check out our DCK video archive and the Data Center Videos channel on YouTube.
