Green House Data and fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty (1547) have partnered to develop a new data center facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The planned 35,000 square foot, 5 megawatt facility is being designed to house wholesale, retail and cloud colocation services for high power density customers.
The first phase of the project is currently underway, with expected availability in the first quarter of 2014. This initial build will make available an additional 5,000 square feet of ready-to-lease space.
The new facility will form the nucleus of a planned, multi-building data center campus on the property, where Green House Data has an existing 10,000 square foot facility. With over 10 acres of adjacent land available and 1547’s expertise in custom datacenter design, development, and operation, the facility is well positioned for further development.
Positioned as Disaster Recovery Site
"This new data center is ideal for organizations from either coast who need to incorporate safe locations into their disaster recovery and business continuity planning," said Shawn Mills, President of Green House Data. “With this expansion, we will be able to offer the business community across the central regions a secure, efficient, state-of-the-art data center that combines a unique climate with strategic access to the key data center hubs in the U.S.”
"We are excited to be working with Shawn and his team to help expand upon the existing infrastructure for customers’ growing network continuity needs," said Corey Welp, Managing Partner, 1547. "Through our partnership, we are committed to continuing to develop the Wyoming technology landscape and to further grow Cheyenne’s market reach as a premier datacenter location."
The facility will boast 100 gigabit per second (Gbps) network capacity with redundancy across four network carriers and low latency to the major datacenter hubs in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas.
Progress for Cheyenne
Wyoming has a characteristically cool and dry climate for the use of outside ambient air for year-round cooling. Its central location offers protection from natural disasters, meaning Green House is building something suitable for both primary infrastructure and disaster recovery from adjacent markets. Wyoming also has abundant and reliable power.
The project continues the momentum seen in the Cheyenne market, which is home to an NCAR supercomputing center and a Microsoft data center.
Green House Data was formed in 2007, providing data center services in the Cheyenne market and to customers around the world. Given its name, the company is committed to using renewable energy to power its infrastructure, including wind and solar.
In partnership with 1547, this new data center has been designed to operate at a very high efficiency rating.
fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty (1547) was formed by executives from a premier national data center construction firm and select executives from both the financial services and data center industries, to capitalize on unique, tenant-driven data center opportunities. The ownership team has over 25 years of combined experience owning, building, and managing datacenters.
