Managed hosting provider Green House Data has announced the Phase 3 expansion of its Cheyenne, Wyoming data center and headquarters. Construction of the new data center expansion has begun already and is expected to be complete within Q1 2019. Phase 3 will add two new data center floors for a combined 7,500 square feet of white space.
The new data center build is designed with energy efficiency in mind, using custom indirect evaporative coolers, energy saving UPS units, and mandatory aisle containment systems to achieve a design PUE of 1.14 (!) or lower.
“The market has responded overwhelmingly to our managed services,” said Shawn Mills, CEO of Green House Data. “Provisioning additional power and data center floors will allow us to expand our cloud platforms and managed offerings significantly, while simultaneously providing additional space and resilience for colocation customers.”
Green House Data provides managed IT infrastructure solutions including cloud hosting, colocation, and disaster recovery. The Cheyenne-based data center features a concurrently maintainable design with at least N+1 redundancy for all power and cooling components alongside multilayered security measures.

“We’re using lessons learned from the initial build-out and second data center floor expansion to form our design and build process for the final two floors,” said Art Salazar, Green House Data Director of Data Centers and Compliance. “The new infrastructure will provide additional efficiencies and resilience. The modular design allows us to expand and change the power routing, network, backup systems, and other vital components without affecting live workloads.”
The completion of the Wyoming site expansion is the latest development for the Cheyenne-headquartered company, which has spread from an initial single location to nine data centers and cloud nodes across the United States, while also adding managed services across a wide variety of other cloud and IT platforms.
“Ultimately our expansions are all about serving the customer. Green House Data serves as a trusted IT advisor to our clients,” added Mr. Mills. We’re able to do so by leveraging a mix of our own facilities, public cloud resources like Azure, and hardware and software expertise. By investing in our data center sites and our employees, we can provide reliable, high-performance IT platforms to organizations from all verticals.”
