Strong Demand For HPC And Dense Server Colocation Accelerates
Colovore, the Bay Area’s leading provider of high-performance colocation services, today announced that it has begun construction on Phase 3, adding another 2 MW of capacity to its Santa Clara data center. Since launching in 2014, Colovore has grown rapidly by providing unrivalled power densities in Bay Area colocation, exceptional uptime and service quality, and a cost-effective, pay-by-the-kW pricing model. As with Phase 2, all cabinets in Phase 3 will support 35 kW of critical load. The additional capacity is expected to be delivered in early Q3 and Colovore is now marketing Phase 3, adding much-needed high-density capacity to the tight Bay Area colocation marketplace.
Highlights / Key Facts
- Customers utilize Colovore to host their high-performance (HPC) and Big Data infrastructure, private/hybrid cloud deployments, and internal lab environments
- With power densities of 35 kW per rack, Colovore provides the highest footprint efficiency and lowest TCO in Bay Area colocation; customers can pack their racks full of servers and operate in a much smaller, cost-effective footprint than legacy colos
- Colovore’s pay-by-the-kW pricing model allows customers to match their costs directly to their IT requirements as they go, providing significant cost savings and easy scalability– 1 kW at a time
- With 9 MW of total power available at its facility, Colovore has plenty of capacity for future expansion beyond this 2 MW Phase 3
“We are clearly seeing increasing rollout of power-hungry, computing platforms supporting a number of fast-growing HPC applications,” stated Sean Holzknecht, President and Co-Founder of Colovore. “Artificial intelligence, Big Data, self-driving cars, and the Internet of Things are exploding and customers need data centers with next-generation power and cooling capabilities to support the underlying IT infrastructure. That is our specialty at Colovore.”
