When fully complete, the purpose built, high density Tier III+ facility will offer fully redundant A/B critical load power with future plans of up to 48 MW of total power capacity on approximately 20 acres. The hardened facility includes Kevlar and steel mesh lined concrete walls able to withstand winds in excess of 100 mph. Cooling is provided using highly efficient, high density cooling solutions.
