Air-cooled design to reduce water usage.

In its data centers in Mesa, Edge Core has designed an air-cooled architecture that includes a very effective closed-looped chilled water system with a benchmark water use effectiveness (WUE) rating under.01 L/kWh. Water usage, a growing issue in many states, including Arizona, is decreased by this sustainable program. Because it helps both the environment and customers, the design choice was chosen with their total cost of ownership in mind.

Future capacity and customer requirements

When finished, the Edge-Core complex in the greater Phoenix region will be able to manage at least 200 MW of essential load while also satisfying present and upcoming client demands. More than 1.1 million square feet of space on the site will be built to Energy Star and LEED standards, making it both ecologically friendly and functional for customers. The location is adjacent to multiple long-haul fiber optic lines run by regional and national carriers, which offer dependable, low-latency connections to the largest cloud areas. It also has immediate access to reasonably priced power.
