A Cedar Rapids, Iowa, company plans to build a state-of-the-art 40,000 square foot data center in Tucson. Pending final permitting approvals, Involta, LLC hopes to open the $15 million facility in December.

“It’s a world-class, state-of-the-art data center facility in Tucson that will deliver IT services to the local community, the region and ultimately nationwide for disaster recovery and other types of mission-critical IT work,” says Chris Shroyer, Involta sales and marketing vice president.

Since the multi-tenant center will offer sensitive IT services to a number of health care companies, government and educational institutions, Shroyer won’t say where the facility will be located.

The company won’t do much hiring in Tucson, because the anchor tenants don’t require local talent, at least to start, Shroyer says.
