The site will have 24 MW of total power available across 60,000 square feet of data hall space.

In many ways, Council Bluffs, with its location on the 41st parallel, is the epicenter of this new digital era. The world’s leading cloud companies continue to invest billions of dollars along this parallel across multiple states and planting a flag in Council Bluffs will allow our customers to capitalize on this unique part of the United States fiber network. We are excited to partner with Mayor Matt Walsh and the city of Council Bluffs as we help bring local jobs and investment to Iowa.”
