Green House Data Unveils 100% Renewable Data Center in Cheyenne

| August 2, 2014

On July 30th, almost one whole year from breaking ground, Green House Data unveiled its new $35 million dollar data center expansion in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Cheyenne has become the new home for marquee customer organizations including Microsoft and the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The Grand Opening celebration included remarks from Wyoming Governor Matt Mead and CEO Shawn Mills who have been working together vigorously to keep this project running smoothly.

The new 35,000 square foot facility built in cooperation with fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty, a premier national datacenter construction firm, have helped Green House Data to increase their Cheyenne footprint by over 250%. The 35,000 square foot building will include 100 Gbps fiber lines and space for 800 new cabinets. Green House Data’s first customer in their Cheyenne data center was the state of Wyoming themselves who purchased a total of 56 racks for computing equipment and servers. The data center employs just fewer than 30 people in their 5 MW facility with room to grow with the expectation of increased business in the Cheyenne area.

Green House Data an EPA Top 100 Green Power Purchaser constructed their new Cheyenne data center to run entirely off of renewable-energy credit purchases. According to their press release, the new data center offers the same 100% SLAs on power, network, and cooling as Green House Data’s existing facilities, while targeting a PUE of 1.14. “It has been a big year for Green House Data as we nearly doubled our workforce and now open a flagship facility,” said Green House Data CEO Shawn Mills. With further room to expand, it will be interesting to see what unfolds for Green House Data moving forward.
