Involta targets Phoenix companies with Tucson data centre

Involta has picked Tucson for its seventh U.S. data centre, citing its proximity to Phoenix and lower costs.

Chris Shroyer, Involta’s vice president of sales and marketing, said housing a data centre in Tucson as opposed to Phoenix was advantageous for several reasons. “You have many data centres in Phoenix, but in Tucson we have the opportunity for lower power, real estate and human resource costs, and less risks than you would typically see in a major metro area,” Shroyer said. “There are less environmental risks. We assure that we’re not in a flood zone and have close proximity to railroads. “There’s less air traffic, less traffic congestion, and it’s easier to get out of secondary cities,” he said. “Tucson is a rather peaceful place.”]
