Infomart Data Centers has announced that its longtime tenant and a leading provider of custom cloud hosting services, Opus Interactive, has completed a 90 kW expansion at its Portland facility. The expansion of Opus’ flagship Hillsboro facility supports the company’s Year-over-Year (YoY) growth, driven by growing customer demand for distributed data processing, retail colocation and cloud solutions in the region. “We’re proud to say we’ve been the retail provider at Infomart’s Hillsboro facility for five years, and we’re excited to be expanding our footprint once again. The Opus team has spent over 20 years honing a mix of purpose-built cloud and colocation solutions that we deliver from state-of-the-art facilities,” says Shannon Hulbert, CEO, Opus Interactive. “The expansion enables us to continue the 25% YoY growth trajectory we’re on, and allows us to offer our customers space inside a world-class facility that delivers not only reliable power and 24×7 security, but also unprecedented levels of efficiency and sustainability.”
“Additionally, as demand for global connectivity continues to increase amongst our customers, being in a facility with access to Asia-Pacific submarine cables is key,” Hulbert adds.
Boasting a 99% efficient uninterrupted power supply (UPS), a power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.16 in full economization mode, 100% aisle containment, and natural cooling methods to run the facility at least 70% of the year, Infomart Portland is one of the most efficient data centers in the world. The facility is also the first data center in Oregon and among a select few in the nation to become LEED Platinum certified, and holds Uptime Institute’s Efficient IT Certification and Management & Operations (M&O) “Stamp of Approval.”
“Opus Interactive’s latest expansion within Infomart Portland is a testament to Infomart’s service mindset as well as the region’s continued growth, largely thanks to its renewable and cost-effective power access, tax incentives, technical workforce, and ascending position as the new ‘digital gateway’ to Asia Pacific,” says John Sheputis, president, Infomart Data Centers. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Opus and serving as the company’s trusted wholesale data center partner as they embark on their next stage of growth.”
