Colovore Adds Much Needed 3.5MW High-Density Colocation Capacity to Silicon Valley

SANTA CLARA, CA – Colovore, the Bay Area’s leading provider of high-performance colocation for high-performance computing infrastructure, today announced that it has expanded again and now has 3.5 MW of high-density capacity currently available in supply-constrained Silicon Valley. Colovore continues its rapid growth by providing unrivaled power densities in Bay Area colocation, exceptional uptime and service quality, and a cost-effective, pay-by-the-kW pricing model. With Silicon Valley data center vacancy rates at historic lows near 5% and a lack of suitable land constraining development, Colovore’s expansion adds much needed high-quality colocation capacity to the marketplace.

Based on the ever-increasing power and cooling capacities required by modern, data and processing-intensive servers, Colovore continues to innovate its market-leading high-density offering. It now offers 50 kW cabinet capacities cooled by its traditional rear-door heat exchangers, and also supports direct liquid cooling (liquid to the platform or to the chip) for the highest-density server deployments. Its minimum customer power commitment per cabinet is only 8 kW, supporting a wide range of IT requirements.


“We are seeing a major change in colocation requirements, driven by incredible advances at the chip and component layers in modern servers,” stated Sean Holzknecht, President and Co-Founder of Colovore. “GPUs, dual CPUs, and flash storage architectures supporting the explosion in A.I., Big Data, and HPC applications and services require data center environments with 10-20x the amount of power and cooling per cabinet compared to only a few years ago–1 kW of draw per modern server rack unit is now common. We are proud of our high-density, liquid-cooled colocation facility which allows our customers to fully-pack their server cabinets and optimize their IT footprints while significantly lowering TCO.”
