BendBroadband

BendBroadband Breaks New Ground as Oregon’s Greenest Tier III Colocation Data Center
Already an innovator of cable, phone and internet services, BendBroadband wanted to diversify its services even further with a colocation data center that provided more than just a local option – it would be one of the most sustainable, reliable and secure colocation facilities in the entire state. BendBroadband put together an ambitious plan for the Vault, one that relied on a “free cooling” wheel, renewable energy sources, carbon credits and a range of cooling, cabinet and security solutions from Chatsworth Products (CPI). A challenge for any company with experience in managing data centers, BendBroadband flourished in its first attempt and became the West Coast’s only colocation data center to achieve Uptime Institute™  Tier III certification in Design and Facility.
 
BendBroadband also became LEED®  Gold certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, making it only one of five data centers in the entire world to acquire two of the industry’s most prestigious honors.
 
BendBroadband is leading the way by building a colocation center that other cable companies are only dreaming about.

The Vault’s legacy will be about more than illustrating business models or laying out diversified revenue streams for other cable companies to follow. By incorporating a design with numerous redundancies in power and security, as well as the usage of renewable energy sources, CPI Passive Cooling®  solutions and a power usage effectiveness (PUE) as low as 1.2, the BendBroadband Vault has redefined the term “green.”
