Great Disaster Recovery Location: Check Out Low Cost Hydropower in Central Washington

Built to maximize security, resilience utility and spend, the Moses Lake data center in Central Washington provides colocation solutions and access to multiple network providers including diverse fiber access to the CenturyLink network. This remote data center 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.

Our 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 center will have an initial 8 megawatts but will ultimately support up to 30 MW of IT load.

Moses Lake provides the full breadth of colocation options. With over 250,000 SF of available space coupled with 40 MW Critical Load on an adjacent 11 acres, this location provides the ability to customize a data center environment by offering a build-to-suit option.
