Seattle South Datacenter

Our NOC and state-of-the-art, 42,000-square-feet colocation facility is situated on Seattle’s Intergate West Campus – part of the largest Internet campus in North America. The solid-floor, steel and concrete construction was purpose-built with datacenter use in mind. Every aspect was taken into consideration, from our 14’ ceilings down to the electrically conductive, grounded floor tiles were designed and reinforced to support live loads. The facility boasts a “Seismic Zone 3 Critical” rating – the highest rating necessary for Western Washington earthquake resistance.
