Case Study | Digital Fortress

Keeping it cool, sustainably 

Since it was awarded a DEEP Gold Certification, Digital Fortress proudly displays their certification plaque on-site to highlight their emphasis on sustainability initiatives, which includes its use of renewable energy from their utility provider, Energy Star-rated IT equipment, flywheel UPS, and, of course, its unique cooling operations.

Digital Fortress's Data Center 1, located in Portland, Oregon, is known for its usage of indirect evaporation cooling and mechanical cooling to assist with its carbon reduction and sustainability initiatives. 

IMiller PR and JD Filippone, Sales Operation Manager at Digital Fortress, spoke with Dale Powlison, Critical Facilities Manager at Digital Fortress, to learn more about exactly how its Data Center 1 earned its DEEP Gold Certification, and how this certification can be used as an additional sales tool to convince prospective tenants to use Digital Fortress's services.
