This site was originally constructed by Dupont Fabros before being acquired in Sept 2017 by Digital Realty Trust in a $7.6 Billion 12 datacenter deal.
The Hillsboro datacenter, approximately 15 miles from downtown Portland, provides more than 18,000 sq ft of white space from a current data center building footprint of 52,000 sq ft. The single-story structure is expandable by another 20,000 sq ft with a current 4.5MW service for IT load. Our data center and its adjacent colocation facilities, both to the North, along with three additional data centers to the South offer a complete Northwest colocation capability.
With a full 2N+1 UPS design, our Hillsboro data center can support client loads of 325 wp/sq ft for power demanding applications. Its PUE rating of 1.3 employs an indoor air containment system that directs cold air to server needs followed by evacuating the resulting hot air outside the facility.
The Hillsboro data center facility is tethered via Metro Connect to important Portland carrier hotels
In March 2016, Dupont Fabros entered into an agreement to acquire a 46.7 acre parcel of land in Hillsboro, Oregon for a purchase price of $11.2 million.
