Futuristic, Environmentally Conscious 1.5 Million Sq. Ft. Flagship Campus Unveiled in Salt Lake City, Utah
Salt Lake City, Utah – September 17, 2021 – Novva Data Centers, a state-of-the-art data center company providing purpose-built data center facilities, announces today the opening of its flagship facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. The 100-acre campus will open with 330,000 square feet of data center space and will span 1.5 million square feet once complete, making it the largest in the state. The opening will be celebrated with a Ribbon Cutting ceremony and reception on September 21st from 5 to 8 pm.
Novva’s 180MW campus located in what’s coined as the “happiest state”, Utah, features state-of-the-art technology with customizable data center suites able to support workloads from 250kW to 30MW. Utah’s cold desert climate allows Novva to make strides in conservation as well, taking advantage of the high altitudes, low temperatures, and low humidity. The facility uses a waterless cooling system combining surrounding air, heat exchange coils and refrigerant for warm periods to keep the data center cool. WIRE, a robot dog, will greet patrons by name and ensure they are registered for entry. A digital drone equipped with 4K live video, infrared, and night vision safeguards the vast campus day and night. The drone can detect cars, and human heat signatures as well as air leaks and temperature anomalies at the campus and building.
“We are thrilled for clients, industry leaders, and friends to see the fruits of our labor, showcasing the beauty that our home in Utah has to offer,” says Wes Swenson, CEO of Novva Data Centers. “Between Utah’s five national parks, mountains, powder skiing, the campus’ unbelievable surroundings, and amenities, we’re confident people will enjoy visiting.”
The Novva team has created more than just a technology-enabled data center; they have created an experience. Boasting sleek Scandinavian Asian minimalist design and state-of-the-art amenities, meticulous attention has been paid to every detail to ensure our client’s comfort and well-being. Customers who choose to stay and work at the facility can take in mountain views, walk by waterfalls and fire-scapes, and enjoy gaming and fitness facilities. Ramps are integrated into entranceways and braille signage stands at the data center’s main overlook because everyone belongs.
“Respect for everyone is paramount at Novva. We want everyone to feel like royalty when they visit,” concludes CEO, Wes Swenson. “I’m lucky because I have a team of people who share the same passion as I do. We’re confident people’s experience at this new data center will show people who we are and what we’re all about.”
