An Iowa company plans to build and operate a 40,000- square-foot data center on Tucson’s south side.
Involta LLC, a data-center management company based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, recently bought an industrial building at 4400 S. Santa Rita Ave. from Aurora Optical Inc. for $2.025 million, according to documents filed with the Pima County Recorder’s Office.
The $15 million facility is scheduled to be operational in December, according to a press release issued today by Involta.
The high-security “colocation” data center will house critical computer systems and related components for healthcare organizations, businesses, government and educational institutions nationwide, with environmental systems and controls, redundant back-up power and specialized fire suppression.
