Flexential‘s largest data center will be 358,000 square feet and it will be located on land outside of Portland, Oregon, adding to its Pacific Northwest campus. The Portland-Hillsboro 3 data center will be connected to Flexential’s 100 GB network backbone and also will be a part of the FlexAnywhere ecosystem. According to Flexential’s statement, the data center will be able to meet the demand caused by the accelerated digital transformation which has increased data production, straining bandwidth, and network resources.
60 MW of power
According to the announcement, Flexential will break ground this summer on a highly connected, 36 MW state-of-the-art data center on Flexential’s Hillsboro campus. With the expansion, the data center will offer customers a total of nearly 700,000 square feet of space and almost 60 MWs of power. Flexential Chief Executive Officer Chris Downie said,
“In a time when some companies are scaling back, Flexential is moving forward with a multi-million dollar investment in our infrastructure, building our largest data center to date, providing inventory and low latency connections for our customers to manage their technology and SaaS requirements. The mounting customer demand and disruption to the supply chain are making cloud and connectivity even more relevant in areas such as healthcare, transportation, technology, and financial services. We are adding solutions and expanding capacity to meet the current and anticipated needs to support this new way of doing business during and after the pandemic.”
