Aligned Data Centers: SLC-01 Salt Lake City
About SLC-01 Salt Lake City
Thanks to Utah’s new sales tax legislation, Salt Lake City is now one of the best TCO markets in the nation. Classified as a cold desert, Utah’s low humidity levels make it ideal for ambient cooling. The state also enjoys some of the cheapest electricity and natural gas rates in the nation; renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, are rapidly growing. Known as Silicon Slopes, the area is a growing technology center. Utah also touts some of the lowest occurrences of natural and man-made disasters in the U.S. It has the fastest Internet speeds in the Intermountain West and among the fastest in the nation. Added alternative energy incentives make Salt Lake City a desirable colocation market, and Aligned’s hyperscale data center campus the location of choice.
