HashingSpace to Build Data Center for Bitcoin Services
HashingSpace Corporation, which manages Bitcoin and Blockchain services through the hosting of ASIC mining, plans to build a new state-of-the-art data center called “Fortress One.”
The reasons behind the building out of Fortress One are to provide increased low-cost hosting capacity for Bitcoin transaction verification and Blockchain mining capabilities.
The business efforts of HashingSpace Corporation include:
- CloudHash – These cloud servers available for rent and include complete hashing capabilities.
- HashATM- This is a subsidiary business of owning and operating Bitcoin ATM equipment.
- HashHosting – These are servers configured specifically for ASIC mining used by HashingSpace themselves.
- HashPool – This provides P2Pool and Public Stratum for web-based services, IOS, and Droid devices.
- HashTicker – This free service provides a Bitcoin value ticker as a screen saver, for websites, IOS, and Droid devices.
- HashVar – This subsidiary wholesales ATMs for Bitcoins and severs for Bitcoins.
- HashWallet – This is a Bitcoin wallet for use by consumers to conduct Bitcoin transactions.
The C. Rallo Contracting Company will build the Fortress One Data Center. The C. Rallo Company worked before with Timothy Roberts, who is the CEO of HashingSpace, Corp. They built four data centers for a previous company run by Mr. Roberts, so the relationship is a long-standing one of about twenty years.
HashingSpace Corp. not only wants to create the most up-to-date data center possible, they are also focusing on environmental efficiency and using green technology in the design. It was announced on Cryptocoin News that the architectural firm of Ross & Baruzzini got the job to create the plans for the new data center facility. General legal counsel for compliance issues will be famous attorney Marco Santori who is a specialist in legal issues regarding Bitcoins.
The Fortress One Data Center complex will be built on an 11-acre site in the state of Washington with construction starting in late 2015 and the projected completion in 2016. The electricity to run the facility will come from local clean hydropower. The data center will have a 36-hour emergency backup power system that runs on diesel fuel in the case of any power outages. The data center will have 109,000 square feet of space. It will hold 1,500 server racks with the total capacity of 22,500 servers. The cooling capacity will be about seven times that of traditional data centers and will take advantage of the natural cooling available during winter.
Fortress One will be a welcome addition of Bitcoin and Blockchain processing that is needed, since those services are not currently available in sufficient capacities to meet the demand for ASIC mining and hosting.
