OVH, the cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider announced the acquisition of a new data center facility in the US. The new facility is located in Hillsboro, Oregon, on the outskirts of Portland and is OVH’s second facility in the US.
Pascal Jaillon, Vice President of Research & Development, OVH US said:
For years, leading tech companies have been trying to figure out how to cool their data centers for less money.
Legacy data centers have been using expensive forced air conditioning to cool servers. OVH’s innovation in data center cooling is just the first of many that will be introduced in this growing market.
OVH says that the new data center will house about 80,000 servers over 112,500 sq.ft of space and will ensure redundancy and scale for US-based companies.
With the new location, the company now has 23 data centers in 11 countries. OVH also added that the new Hillsboro data center extends the global fiber network, which delivers top performance and a high-speed capacity for latency and security.
