This LEED Gold data center, which serves Bend BroadBand’s West Coast customers, was built to 24/7, “critical facility” standards (TIER 3+). One of its most forward-looking features is a Kyoto “heat wheel,” a closed-loop heat exchanger that makes use of outside air for energy-efficient cooling while still isolating the data floor from outside contaminants—only the second deployed in the US and the largest to date.
