The Moses Lake campus in Central Washington provides colocation solutions and access to multiple network providers. The facility was built to maximize security, resilience, utility and spend. This remote data center takes advantage of free air-cooling and hydropower and a low-risk location, making it an ideal spot for disaster recovery and non-latency sensitive workloads.
The abundant hydroelectric power available in Central Washington provides more than 85 percent of the utility power supplied to this facility. This makes it not only a low carbon footprint hosting solution but also one of the most cost-effective colocation options in North America. The data center will have an initial five megawatts but will ultimately support up to 80 MW of IT load.
This is a building with a storied history. It is one of the first purpose-built hardened data centers ever built. It initially served as a North American Air Defense Command Direction Center from 1958-1963. It housed an IBM S.A.G.E. computer system used to monitor and coordinate US air defense in the early years of the Cold War. Recently, it has under gone a complete refit to build out a fully modern and highly resilient data center. Power is delivered from an adjacent power sub-station with a potential of 80 MW of available utility power. The closest airports are Spokane International (2 hours) and Seattle-Tacoma International (3 hours).
