Seattle, Washington (May 2, 2018) – Responding to increased demand for high-density, high-performance requirements, Centeris, a leading provider of data center solutions in the Pacific Northwest, announced today it is adding 2MW in highly efficient power and cooling capacity at its Seattle SH1 Data Center. The new expansion is designed to support power densities of 21 KW to 52 KW per cabinet.
The 2 MW addition follows Colocation Northwest’s lease of up to 7 Megawatts of mission critical IT capacity at SH1 late last year. Colocation Northwest, a division of IsoFusion Inc., is one of the largest privately held ISP and colocation providers in Western Washington.
“The new build delivers additional robust, scalable power and cooling capacity in response to growing demand,” said Centeris owner, Larry Benaroya. “The Seattle area is a great data center market and we look forward to continuing to deliver on point solutions for current and future customers.”
The Centeris South Hill Campus features a 50 Megawatt onsite substation providing dedicated, expandable green power, and dense fiber connectivity delivering redundant, high-speed connections to the most important access points in the U.S. and Asia and a ring to major interconnect points such as the Westin Building Exchange. Customers of all sizes enjoy the security of Centeris’ private campus, while benefiting from the native power density of SH1. With increasing power requirements and shrinking hardware footprints, SH1 is well positioned to satisfy the rapid evolution of today’s cloud and systems architectures.
