Flexential's Brookwood site in the Portland metro is former ViaWest. Flexential was created after Peak10 acquired ViaWest for $1.67 billion in August 2017. The rebranding from ViaWest to Flexential was announced in January 2018.
6,000 tons of redundant cooling capacity
The site houses the U.S. cable landing station for the Hawaiki submarine cable, which delivers “low-latency” connection between the continental U.S., Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand and American Samoa.
The New Cross Pacific subsea cable also lands in Brookwood, delivering up to 80 Terabits per second of capacity to significantly reduce latency between the U.S. and the high-growth Asian markets of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China
Flexential expanded the site by 144,700 square feet. The space was built from the ground up adjacent to the existing building.
