Rubicon Data Centers to build 330,000 sq ft Reno data center

October 5, 2012 by  

Web Hosting Services – Rubicon Data Centers, a new data center development company based in San Francisco, today announced plans for its first data center development project in Reno, where it plans to build a 20-megawatt, 300,000 square foot data center as the first phase in a larger mission-critical campus.

Rubicon is led by industry veterans JP Balajadia and Kevin Louie, both former principals in the 365 Main data center venture. They are partnering with Prologis, a leading owner and developer of industrial real estate, to develop a data center campus on 44 acres at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, a large industrial park about eight miles east of Reno.

The Rubicon project is the latest in a series of major data center wins for the Reno area. In June Apple confirmed plans to build a major data center in Reno, and a month later Defense IT specialist NJVC announced plans for a Reno facility.

The Rubicon project will feature data center suites for enterprise customers, multi-tenant colocation rooms and office space. The site has access to power and water from Nevada Energy and TRI Water & Sewer Co., with the ability to purchase power from wholesale providers in the area to reduce overall power costs. Rubicon intends to deliver transmission power rates averaging 4.5 centers per kilowatt hour (kWh).

Rubicon Data Centers is an affiliate of Rubicon Point Partners, a real estate investment company based out of San Francisco. The company’s launch by Balajadia and Louie is the second recent piece of industry news featuring alumni of the 365 Main data center portfolio, which was the portfolio was sold to Digital Realty for $725 million in 2010. In a separate venture announced last month, two other members of 365 Main team, Chris Dolan and Jamie McGrath, acquired 16 data centers from Equinix.
