Florence Data Center

Florence, KY

Florence Data Center

With close access to downtown Cincinnati and the greater Cincinnati airport, CyrusOne’s 140,000 square foot Florence, Kentucky data center is a great location to support High Performance Computing (HPC) environments, production colocation, back-up and recovery and business continuity.

This data center facility has multiple levels of redundancy available within the same footprint (N, N+1). The site is setup with both water cooled and air cooled chillers for continued redundancy structure.

With 24x7x365 security onsite, video surveillance of exterior and interior of facility, and rigid access control your mission critical environment is safe and secure.

  • Reporting
    • Water risk (now, 2030, 2040)
    • Carbon intensity (trends over time)
    • Grid renewables (trends over time)


  • CyrusOne Zero Water Consumption Cooling: No water is consumed to cool this facility (such as water towers or evaporative cooling).  Minimal amounts of water are used for humidification and facility maintenance.  This facility uses free cooling, variable frequency drives, and energy-efficient CRAH units to achieve high efficiency air-cooled chilling.  An average US data center of the same size typically consumes over 2.7 million gallons of water per month to cool them.


  • Regional Water Risk: The Florence area faces a low to medium risk of water supply disruption, which is expected to become low risk in the future.  Unlike many other data centers, CyrusOne’s Florence facility does not use water for cooling and is therefore insulated from regional water risk, both current and future.

  • Regional Grid Greenhouse Gasses: How much greenhouse gas does this facility’s local electrical grid emit while generating electricity?  (Useful for Location-based greenhouse gas reporting)
Greenhouse Gasses 2004 2007 2012 2016
Lbs CO2/MWh 1495.0 1540.9 1337.2 1185.4

The carbon-intensity of the grid has improved about 1.9% points per year over the last 12 years of published data.  Reported by the US EPA eGRID for the SERC Tennessee Valley subregion (SRTV).


  • Regional Grid Renewables: What percentage of this facility’s local electrical grid is from renewable sources (wind, solar, biomass, hydro, and geothermal)?
Grid Renewables 2004 2007 2012 2016
Percent from renewable sources 9.7% 4.6% 7.7% 7.3%

Based on US EPA eGRID data for the SERC Tennessee Valley subregion (SRTV).
