Increasing Green Power, Reducing Greenbacks: CenturyLink's Latest Green Datacenter Initiative
This IDC Insight examines the operational details of CenturyLink's facility, the drivers for the deployment, and provides analysis of the datacenter's launch within the context of the company's overall "greening" strategy. CenturyLink, a full-service provider of network, communications, hosting, cloud, and colocation services, announced in May that it has opened a new datacenter. Located in the eastern half of the state of Washington, this facility's primary power supply is hydroelectric and is situated in a nearly ideal location for avoiding the likelihood of a natural disaster forcing the datacenter offline.
