The Tier III Portland - Hillsboro 2 data center is ranked among the most connected in the world
Welcome to the Flexential Portland - Hillsboro 2 Tier III data center, known by many as the Network Access Point (NAP) of the Northwest. As the U.S. point of presence for the New Cross Pacific (NCP) and Hawaiki transpacific subsea cables connecting Asia and the U.S., Portland - Hillsboro 2 is ranked among the best connected in the world. The Uptime Institute-certified Tier III design and build facility has 160,000 square feet of contiguous white floor space, a 24-foot ceiling, 18 MW critical load UPS capacity and 1.3 PUE, which is one of the lowest efficiency measurements in the industry. Fault-tolerant design accommodates for potential disruptions to individual system components while maintaining power and cooling supplies to customer IT equipment.
“We are extremely proud of this data center, our largest in Oregon. It benefits from a holistic design approach, with all systems and components contributing to maximum efficiency, allowing us to pass along cost savings to our customers,” said Chris Downie, CEO at Flexential. “The efficient design, coupled with direct, low-latency connections that span the U.S. and provide access to Asia-Pacific, make it an ideal location for companies seeking a cost-efficient IT infrastructure solution complete with capacity to expand and a global connectivity reach.”
