Low Risk of Natural Disasters

Hurricanes on the east coast, earthquakes on the west coast, and tornadoes in the middle—how can you be sure your servers will escape nature's wrath? With data centers located in some of the safest areas of the nation, placing your critical data a Cheyenne data center has never looked better. 

The average cost of an outage can be over $100,000 per hour and most data centers are located in disaster prone states like California (14% of all data centers), New York (8%), or Florida (5%).

These maps detail the risk of natural disasters in major metropolitan areas, including earthquakes, tornadoes, and hurricanes. Even if one of these disasters doesn't damage the data center, it can cut power for days at a time. Be prepared. Keep your infrastructure intact.

Wyoming is one of the most reliable power grids in the country, as ranked by Eaton in their annual Blackout Tracker report. The state reported only 12 outages in 2014, with a total of just 376 minutes without power.
