Implementing environmentally sound business practices is a common trend among leading companies in the modern era. Last year, Google (News - Alert) announced the availability of new tools to reduce carbon emissions from cloud activity. Not long after that, CoreSite (News - Alert) announced its Virginia-based data storage center would run completely on renewable energy. Now, two more companies are taking a sustainable approach to data storage.
Digital technology solution company UPSTACK and data center developer Wyoming Hyperscale White Box recently announced a new strategic partnership. As part of this agreement, UPSTACK customers will have early access to Wyoming Hyperscale’s sustainable data center currently in development.
"We've tapped the industry's pre-eminent experts in every field to help us realize our goal to create the most sustainable high-density data center," said Trenton Thornock, Founder and Managing Member of Wyoming Hyperscale. "We chose UPSTACK as our strategic partner because of their advisors' vast data center expertise and unmatched reputations for delivering trusted guidance to data center solution decision makers."
The data center is positioned in a cool-climate area on the northline ridge of Aspen Mountain, and is located in close proximity to a number of environmentally friendly energy sources. Advanced techniques will also be used to make the data center more efficient, including liquid immersion cooling to reduce power consumption, nickel-zinc battery-based backup energy reserves, and using energy from local wind farms. Additionally, compute heat will be stored and used by a local farm owned by the Thornock Family.
"Simply put, Wyoming Hyperscale's approach to data centers hasn't been done before. The amount of computing power in a smaller footprint is simply amazing," said James Caulfield, Partner and Managing Director at UPSTACK. "We're excited to introduce customers to the data center of the future – today – while also benefiting the environment and helping businesses execute against their corporate ESG initiatives."
