CHEYENNE — The clouds are getting "greener" on the East Coast, thanks to a new data center built by Green House Data in Newark, N.J.
Details emerged yesterday on the new data center, briefly mentioned in a November eDaily article in Wyoming Business Report.
The 175,000-square-foot facility is solar powered and has a gold LEED certification to keep with the company's desire to be "the world's greenest cloud." The facility is the company's third, with a central location in Cheyenne and another in Portland, Ore.
"The Green House Data cloud now blankets the entire nation," said President Shawn Mills. He added that the "geographically diverse cloud" the company offers helps load-balance the nation while providing additional "failover in the case of an unforeseen event."
The move should also drop latency and improve performance across the company's cloud, making it more attractive to high-performance users.
"Because we are able to provide multiple, nationwide access points, our customers are able to reach their customers faster, no matter where they are in North America or the Eurozone," said Mills.
Green House Data is also looking to expand its Cheyenne presence in the near future through a $2.25 million grant from the Wyoming Business Council.
That potential 35,000-square-foot facility in the Cheyenne Business Parkway could open within a year and land 40 new jobs in Cheyenne.
