Salt Lake City: The Ideal Destination for Data Centers
Salt Lake City has quickly emerged as the go-to choice for data center needs. Not only is it attracting innovators from the local Silicon Slopes, but it is also serving as a cost-effective alternative to expensive data centers in California. Recognized by Forbes as the Best State for Business and Least Debt Burdened, Salt Lake City's convenient location provides easy access to both the West Coast and Mountain communities.
DataBank, a leading provider in the industry, offers six strategically positioned data centers in the area. This includes the downtown SLC1 Carrier Hotel and the Bluffdale campus, comprising SLC2, SLC3, SLC4, SLC5, and SLC6. These data centers benefit from the high elevation and dry desert geography, allowing for efficient cooling. Additionally, the state's low occurrence of natural and man-made disasters makes it one of the safest data center locations in the United States. Furthermore, Utah boasts exceptional Internet speeds, ranking among the highest in the Intermountain West and the nation.
Specifically, DataBank's SLC4 data center, located on the Granite Point Campus, stands out. It leverages a private power substation to provide High-Performance Computing (HPC)-capable, high-density colocation cabinets. This makes it ideal for compute-intensive workloads. The campus also offers outstanding connectivity, with access to numerous carriers and cloud providers.
