Green House Data, one of the nation’s first 100% green data centers offering cloud hosting and colocation services, announced today that they have expanded their modular data center facility with 3000 sq. ft. of new colocation space. As additional facilities are being planned and built, the company strives to continually raise expectations of an energy efficient data center.
Business leaders are learning that greening IT and IT infrastructure are not only good for the environment, but are now an essential part of smart business. Although green power can come at a premium, the amount of money spent on infrastructure services can actually be reduced overall by working with companies, like Green House Data, who pass on their energy savings on to their customers.
“We are excited to see the demand for green IT infrastructure growing so rapidly” stated Shawn Mills, President of Green House Data. “Businesses are benefitting by leveraging our investments in next generation energy efficient technologies and operational experience to lower their total carbon output, while, at the same time, lowering the amount they are spending to manage their IT.”
The new colocation space was presold by 30% prior to opening due to the great number of amenities offered. Included in the recent expansion are non-raised floors with ESD flooring, direct evaporative cooling system, energy efficient UPSs and expanded power and cooling capacity with up to 8KW per cabinet. Pairing these features with a location that offers both a relative absence of natural disaster and a favorable economic climate has proven to be a winning combination.
“With this expansion, we can leverage even more of Green House Data’s energy efficient services to support our rapidly growing, multi-petabyte, cloud-based video storage infrastructure in Wyoming,” stated Mark Lemmons, Thought Equity Motion’s CTO. “We decided to colocate with Green House Data because of the company’s sustainable business model, Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16 Type II compliancy, data security standards, and high reliability and service.”
