Salt Lake City: The Ideal Data Center Destination
Salt Lake City is attracting both local innovators and those looking for cost-effective alternatives to California data centers. Forbes has recognized it as the "Best State for Business" with the least debt burden. Its convenient location offers easy access to the West Coast and Mountain communities.
DataBank has strategically positioned six data centers in the Salt Lake City area. These include the downtown SLC1 Carrier Hotel and the Bluffdale campus, comprising SLC2, SLC3, SLC4, SLC5, and the latest addition, SLC6. With high elevation and dry desert geography, these data centers are efficiently cooled. Moreover, Utah's remarkable safety record against natural and man-made disasters makes it one of the safest data center locations in the country. Additionally, Utah boasts some of the highest Internet speeds in the Intermountain West, and among the highest in the nation.
SLC6, the newest addition to the Granite Point Campus, is DataBank's final data center in Bluffdale, UT. Opened in 2023, it offers generous raised flooring, access to multiple carriers, and a 66MW substation for increased capacity. It further establishes our premier colocation campus in the "Silicon Slopes" region.
