Our Mineral Gap Data Center is located in Wise, VA, otherwise known as “The Safest Place on Earth.” In addition to its mild climate and protected mountain location, Wise, VA is also conveniently located outside of the “blast zone,” near a large airport, and close to government mission critical locations. This area is also optimal for data security as it is characterized by the redundancy of power and telecommunication that ensures data will always be covered.
Our Mineral Gap Data Center enforces anti-terrorism protection and enhanced security measures through its design as a high-strength, pre-cast concrete facility with K-rated, U.S. Department of State certified anti-ram fencing and wedge barriers. Additionally, Mineral Gap has both a perimeter blast berm and counter-IED protective measures.
In addition to standard biometric and key card multi-factor authentication, the Mineral Gap facility ensures security through 24/7/365 on-duty armed security personnel, as well as extensive video and counter-surveillance systems. This facility also provides an advanced tactical command center and is NIST 800, SSAE 16 and SOC 1 & SOC 2 compliant.
Mineral Gap significantly reduces your capital and operating costs with low-cost utility power and an estimated PUE of 1.2. Pairing this with our current substations allow us to be scalable up to 45MW of power enabling you to develop your IT operations as you grow.
