Greatresponder.com – 2011-06-07 – Real estate business The Benaroya Company announced on yesterday it has acquired from HP 60,252 square foot data center in Boise, Idaho.
The terms and other details of the deal were not disclosed.
The action comes a couple of months after Benaroya’s South Hill Data Center in Puyallup, Washington received LEED Gold certification.
Boise Data Center is a medium facility that provides 29,562 square feet of raised floor space in two wings in a secure 5 acre setting.
The Boise Data Center have all features to perform all data center functions and provide web hosting. Data center connected to Qwest, 360 Networks and Time Warner.
Here is what Larry Benaroya CEO of Benaroya Company said:
“This acquisition expands our data center base regionally. We believe Boise is a strong market for colocation and disaster recovery with significant demand for low to medium density data center space. The Boise Data Center is immediately available and will enable users to deliver their critical IT applications in a flexible, reliable and cost effective facility.”
Located just in a 5 miles from the Boise Central Business district, the data center is located in an area with a low seismic risk, as well as offers a pro-business climate and low cost of doing business.
Boise’s power rates are one of the lowest in the country, which can be attributed to its efficient, clean hydro-electric power.
We just want to note that this is the third purchase of data center over the past two weeks. Seems hosting industry expects some sort of movement in near future.
