US-based data infrastructure and colocation company Compute North announced its third colocation center. Center is now live in Nebraska and offers 100 MW of power. According to the news, the company agreed with the City of Kearney and the Economic Development Council of Buffalo County to commit about $7.65 million to the project in the summer of 2019.

Cryptocurrency mining equipment
Compute North also hosts and distributes cryptocurrency mining equipment from the likes of Bitmain, Whatsminer, Canaan, and more. Although the most popular location for cryptocurrency mining is still China, the number of bitcoin mining centers in the USA is growing rapidly. The company also claims that the facility is set up to accommodate large-capacity users with over 1MW of requirements by delivering accessible, affordable, reliable and secure collocation.
Compute North CEO Dave Perrill said:
“Our new Nebraska hosting site is already more than two-thirds committed and is continuing to ramp up quickly. We are very excited to be a part of the Kearney community as we continue to deliver scalable, fast deployment data center solutions that help organizations drive maximum ROI.”
