: Upstack announces partnership with Wyoming Hyperscale for sustainable data center

Mar 17, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Upstack has formed a strategic partnership with Wyoming Hyperscale White Box (WHWB). The partnership will see the company gain access to the Wyoming Hyperscale White Box facility due to open by the end of 2022. Located in a remote mountainous site southeast of Evanston, according to the Thornocks family who owns the land, the facility will be "the most advanced sustainable data center in the United States." Moreover, excess heat from the facility will be transported to a local farm by being pumped underground. 

Commenting on the development, Trenton Thornock, Founder and Managing Member of Wyoming Hyperscale, said: "We've tapped the industry's pre-eminent experts in every field to help us realize our goal to create the most sustainable high-density data center. We chose UPSTACK as our strategic partner because of their advisors' vast data center expertise and unmatched reputations for delivering trusted guidance to data center solution decision makers."

The facility is reportedly adjacent to solar, wind and future advanced nuclear power plants and closeby to "diverse natural gas storage" with multiple high-pressure gas transmission lines. The company has also invested in liquid immersion cooling installed nick-zinc battery-based UPS for backup energy storage. 

James Caulfield, Partner and Managing Director at UPSTACK, added: "Simply put, Wyoming Hyperscale's approach to data centers hasn't been done before. The amount of computing power in a smaller footprint is simply amazing. We're excited to introduce customers to the data center of the future – today – while also benefiting the environment and helping businesses execute against their corporate ESG initiatives."

The facility, currently under construction, is expected to begin commissioning in the fourth quarter of 2022.
