ViaWest is building a 210,000-square-foot data center in southeast Denver. It's the company's fifth data center in the Denver area, scheduled to be open for business in the first quarter of 2014.
Located in the Compark business complex, ViaWest's new facility will have 140,000 square feet of raised floor space. It's expected to have a 1.2 Power Use Effectiveness (PUE) rating, considered one of the lowest in the industry. PUE ratings demonstrate highly efficient operations across power, cooling and other data-center systems.
ViaWest Compark will offer cloud computing, wholesale and retail colocation, managed services and compliance solutions.
The company recently announced plans for another data center in Minneapolis, which will also be completed in the first quarter of 2014. In addition, ViaWest opened its Lone Mountain Las Vegas data center in early 2013, the first Tier IV design-certified, multi-tenant data center in North America.
