Phoenix, AZ

Why Phoenix?

Phoenix is the sixth-ranked data center market in the country, according to CBRE.

Cloud, eCommerce, financial services, healthcare, technology, and telecom companies as well as hyperscalers are gravitating to Phoenix. Data centers in Phoenix are located close enough to many major urban centers, including Los Angeles, to deliver digital services without significant latency.

As a location close to areas where IT services are in high demand, operating and energy costs are low, and natural disasters are uncommon, the Phoenix region is an ideal place for cloud service providers hyperscalers, and large enterprises looking to deploy their digital infrastructure in proximity to the West Coast.

Arizona has a reliable power grid and ample access to renewables for data center operators and their customers who are looking meet sustainability goals. Arizona public utilities generate power from a variety of stable sources and charge substantially less per kWh than other Western states, according to the U.S. Energy Information Association. The Arizona Public Service (APS) has one of the country’s most substantial renewable energy portfolios, using a balanced energy mix that is 50% carbon-free. 

Additionally, the Arizona Commerce Authority has a program that incentivizes companies that collocate in Phoenix with a 20-year sales tax exemption that can mean millions of dollars in savings. Plus, the cost of doing business in Phoenix is below the national average according to PwC.
