Salt Lake City: The Ideal Data Center Destination
Salt Lake City is quickly becoming a top choice for data center needs, attracting both local innovators from the "Silicon Slopes" and those looking for affordable alternatives to California's expensive data centers. Praised by Forbes as the "Best State for Business" and with the "Least Debt Burden," Salt Lake City's location offers easy access to the West Coast and Mountain communities.
DataBank is proud to offer six strategically located data centers in the area, including the downtown SLC1 Carrier Hotel and the Bluffdale campus (SLC2, SLC3, SLC4, SLC5, and SLC6). Thanks to the city's high elevation and dry desert geography, these data centers benefit from efficient cooling. Additionally, Salt Lake City's remarkably low rates of natural and man-made disasters make it one of the safest data center locations in the United States. On top of that, Utah boasts some of the fastest internet speeds in the Intermountain West and among the highest in the nation.
At DataBank's Granite Point SLC3 data center in Bluffdale, UT, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Located just minutes from downtown Salt Lake City, this carrier-neutral facility offers network connectivity to multiple Tier 1 and Tier 2 providers, diverse substations for high-density power, and redundant cooling systems.
