Comcast Business says it will supply dual 100G fiber routes to Novva Data Centers. The fully diverse routes to Novva’s West Jordan, Utah, hyperscale data center facility will be complemented by a 40G Ethernet Dedicated Internet (EDI) connection and will link Novva’s data center to the Comcast Business network.
Novva plans to use the facility, slated to open this month, to offer low-cost data center services. Nevertheless, the company has begun plans for future expansion, according to Comcast Business. For example, the company has engineered more sustainable facilities that can function without water year-round and use solar energy.
Novva also plans to transition to a fully automated model, in which AI-enabled management software will monitor cooling equipment, generators, power spikes, security and other functions. Novva also plans to development of additional campuses over the next few years, including in San Francisco.
“Data is a ‘trust business,’ and that’s reflected in our partnership with Comcast Business. We trust the speed, network, and the infrastructure that’s being built out,” said Wes Swenson, founder and CEO of Novva Data Centers. “The industry recognizes Comcast as a significant player when it comes to IP routing. On top of that, our clients trust Comcast Business and have already asked for their solutions, making the partnership a simple decision for us.”
