Semiconductor maker Marvell Technology has chosen The Benaroya Company’s South Hill Data Center for its disaster recovery requirements, the companies said today. Marvell selected the South Hill facility in Puyallup, Wash. after an extensive site selection process throughout the West Coast.
The South Hill Business and Technology Center features 56,605 square feet of finished raised floor space in the North Data Center on the campus and an additional 175,000 square feet of “cold shell” with power capacity. The facility recently earned Gold-level certification under the LEED ( Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program for energy efficient buildings.
“We are pleased to be working with Marvell to meet their data center requirements,” said Larry Benaroya, Principal of the Benaroya Company. “South Hill Data Center provides an ideal secure facility to handle the rapidly expanding demands of cloud computing, data storage and retrieval, and disaster recovery.”
The Benaroya Company recently said it will partner with Real Property Investors and O’Keefe Companies to acquire and develop data centers. The group’s strategy was reflected in Benaroya’s recent acquisition of a former HP data center in Boise, Idaho.
