When Novva set out to create a state-of-the-art data center in Utah, a few things were top of mind: sustainability, futuristic tech, beautiful design, and an unparalleled network that could keep up with the demands of supplying the 100-acre campus with power to 1.5 million square feet of data center space and a 120 MW (eventually 180MW) substation with flexible N, N+1 and 2N redundancy.
After extensive planning and research, the solution and provider became clear: Zayo.
“Zayo’s interconnectivity for us is essential for where we sit within Utah. In this case in Utah, one of the main reasons we selected this site is because of Zayo connectivity,” Novva CEO Wes Swenson said.
In a newly released case study, penned jointly by Zayo and Novva, the two companies detail some of the steps they went through to join forces on the Utah data center campus and explain the four fiber, dark fiber ring crafted to connect the data center to two major aggregation hubs in Utah.
The study gives a behind-the-scenes look at how data center operators and network providers work together to solve unique connectivity challenges. For example, thanks to Zayo’s network scale and readily available spec inventory, Novva is better able to scale with its customers.
