Data Center Campus in Reno

Last week, the company announced that it has finally started building its first data centre campus in the Reno metropolitan area of Nevada, almost five years after initially planned.

Projected Growth

According to a leasing report by 451 Research, Reno is expected to be the fourth fastest-growing data centre market in the US between 2022 and 2025, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 percent.

Location Advantages

EdgeCore says Reno's proximity to the Bay Area, just 250 miles away and with sub-three millisecond latency, makes it attractive for major cloud and internet companies seeking data centre space. Additionally, the availability of low-cost utility power and renewable energy options contributes to the city's appeal.

Cost Efficiency

Reno offers a 30 percent lower total cost of ownership compared to a comparable data centre deployment in the Bay Area, making it an appealing option for businesses seeking cost-effective solutions on the West Coast.

Utility Partnerships

EdgeCore has partnered with NV Energy for its Reno data centre campus. The utility power is scheduled to be delivered to the site by the second half of 2025. The development of a substation has also commenced and is expected to be completed by the same timeframe.

Environmental Considerations

EdgeCore's campus will utilize a closed-loop chilled water system to maximize water efficiency, with a benchmark water usage effectiveness (WUE) rating below .01 L/kWh.

Network Diversity

EdgeCore says it has procured a 564-count fibre route in Reno, connecting the campus with the main exchange point at 200 South Virginia in Reno. This provides network diversity and resiliency to customers.

Acquisition and Funding

In November 2022, EdgeCore was acquired by Partners Group, a global private markets firm. Partners Group has committed up to USD 1.2 billion for the acquisition and development of EdgeCore's data centre sites, including those in Silicon Valley, Ashburn, Virginia, and the greater Phoenix area.

Development Projects

The Reno data centre project is one of several development projects initiated by EdgeCore in 2023, with others being Silicon Valley, Ashburn, and the greater Phoenix area, as reported by TelecomTalk.
