Typical data centers are designed to accommodate 4 kilowatts or 33 amps at 120 volts. This makes it impractical to fully utilize cabinets. High-density data centers support about three times the power, greater than 10 kilowatts per cabinet, with at least 150 watts per square foot. This enables far more computing inside a much smaller footprint, which can result in reduced operating expense.
Inside our Tier 3 South Hill data center, Colocation Northwest supports 150 to over 260 watts per square foot, up to 30 kilowatts per cabinet. Designed from inception for high-density computing, this state-of-the-art facility opens the doors for the next-generation of cloud, enterprise and IT infrastructure.
- Maximize Efficiency: Use more servers and at peak proficiency.
- More Capacity: Run more applications. Process more data.
- Reduce Costs: Decrease your footprint to save.
From big data to the internet of things, from virtualization to cloud technologies, and from biotech to artificial intelligence, todays applications run more compute cycles and process more data than ever. To stay competitive businesses must operate high-density IT infrastructure placed inside an environment optimized performance and longevity.
