Novva Data Centres has announced the opening of its flagship facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. The 100-acre campus will open with 330,000 square feet of data centre space and will span 1.5 million square feet once complete, making it the largest in the state.
The 180MW campus features state of the art technology with customisable data centre suites able to support workloads from 250kW to 30MW. Utah’s cold desert climate allows the company to make strides in conservation as well, taking advantage of the high altitudes, low temperatures, and low humidity. The facility uses a waterless cooling system combining surrounding air, heat exchange coils and refrigerant for warm periods to keep the data centre cool. A digital drone equipped with 4K live video, infrared, and night vision safeguards the vast campus day and night. The drone can detect cars, human heat signatures as well as air leaks and temperature anomalies at the campus and building.
“We are thrilled for clients, industry leaders and friends to see the fruits of our labour, showcasing the beauty that our home in Utah has to offer,” Wes Swenson, CEO of Novva Data Centres, said. “Between Utah’s five national parks, mountains, powder skiing, the campus’ unbelievable surroundings and amenities, we are confident people will enjoy visiting.”
