Michigan Colocation Benefits
Low Risk of Earthquakes
The U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Seismic Hazard Mapping project in 2008 shows that Michigan has an extremely low peak ground acceleration (PGA). This means that your servers are safe from earthquakes when colocated in Michigan, and high unlikely to experience downtime from any seismic activity.
Low Risk of Tornadoes and Hurricanes
Servers colocated in Michigan face significantly lower risks of tornados and hurricanes compared to the rest of the U.S. According to the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA), Michigan is among the states with the lowest tornado risk and has never experienced a hurricane.
Natural Cool Climate
Our Michigan data centers run more cost effectively in the state's cool, mild climate. The average outdoor temperature a Michigan data center faces across the year ranges from 25 degrees Fahrenheit to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. This provides free cooling for most of the year. Only four months have temperatures that average over 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
