Cincinnati – Hamilton Data Center

Hamilton, OH

North Cincinnati Eco-Friendly Colocation Site

Located 30 minutes north of downtown Cincinnati, this 83,000 square foot facility is used for production colocation, back-up and disaster recovery and business continuity.

This “green” data center utilizes power from the city that is 45% from a non-carbon source. The site has 4.8 MW total available power with up to 100 watts per sq. ft. from dedicated primary circuits. With scalability as a focal point, we offer multiple levels of redundancy available within the same footprint.

In CyrusOne’s Cincinnati data center in Hamilton, your mission critical environment is guarded and monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    • Renewable Energy Used
    • Renewable Energy Available


  • 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 Cincinnati 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 North Cincinnati – Hamilton 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 1556.0 1551.5 1379.5 1243.4

The carbon-intensity of the grid has improved about 1.8% points per year over the last 12 years of published data.  Reported by the US EPA eGRID for the RFC West subregion (RFCW).


  • 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 1.1% 1.0% 3.2% 4.2%

This has been increasing about 0.3% points per year over the last 12 years of published data.  Based on US EPA eGRID data for the RFC West subregion (RFCW).
