Opus Interactive, a data center has come up in downtown Brewery Blocks in Oregon. For the company’s CEO, Eric Hulbert, the Oregon economy is showing signs of positive growth. This is despite the slump in housing market and increase in unemployment rate. The new data center is looking for new clients too.The target customers are telecom companies, search engines and social media companies. Hulbert’s contention of data center demand growing is supported by the fact that big names like Google and Facebook are also heading to Central Oregon for adding on extra facilities. Opus Interactive’s data center in Brewery Blocks occupies the building’s 3rd and 4th floors.
It has 40,000 square feet of hosting space. The data center will also have to crunch through electricity that can power up to 150,000 homes. This decade long project will see the space being converted fully into data center facilities. 10 years ago, the building was originally meant to be a data center when TyCom, a telecom company wanted to use the 2 floors to establish one.
