Disaster Preparedness

Earthnet is one of the most advanced public data centers of its kind in Colorado.

The Data Center was designed and constructed to surpass local building area codes and seismic requirements. Our facility is located in an area with less than a 2% chance of an earthquake having a magnitude over 5.0 in the next 50 years (source). Earthnet is not located near any forest area and is not at risk from forest fire. Boulder’s close proximity to the mountains provides an area relatively safe from tornadoes as well.

We are centrally located in the USA, providing a buffer from coastal areas. This also makes it a fairly easy flight from anywhere in the country.
