Stone Mountain Dataplex’s Olive Hill data center is located at 235 A Tom T. Hall Blvd., Olive Hill, KY 41164. The Stone Mountain Dataplex is a state of the art data center complex located inside of mountain in Kentucky. The data center is behind 40 foot thick solid walls but is located 300 feet above the ground. Multiple airports are available within 45 minutes drive of the complex in both KY and WV. The data center is located in a disaster free zone with very low to no risk of natural disaster such as tornado, hurricane, earthquake etc.
Stone Mountain Dataplex is a Tier IV infrastructure, and is plan to be built in different phases. The complex initial phases have seven building data center with each building having 12,800 square feet of total space, two floors, 10,000 square feet of 24 inches raised floor, and 17 feet clear ceiling height. The data center currently provides 400,000 square feet of subterranean data center space, 100,000 square feet of data center space, 100,000 square of office space, 60,000 square feet of cafeteria/meeting facility, 12,000 maintenance building, 12,000 square feet of vehicle maintenance facility, and 50,000 square feet of warehouse building. The completed portion of the project is referred as phase I-III while remaining phases of the project include more than 400 data centers, office buildings, warehouses and support and security buildings, which will be built in phases with the completion in 2018.
The Stone Mountain Dataplex was conceived in the post 9/11 era when it became apparent of the need to provide commercial clients the same security and reliability afforded to government entities. Multiple natural security barriers such as river and cliffs surround the complex with multiple security rings both inside and outside the mountain for additional security protection. The Police powers are granted by the State to onsite security force to allow the carrying of automatic weapons and with arrest powers. The complex has onsite ground radar, biometric access, and other electronic security and surveillance measures. The complex has onsite fire station, sheriff station, and EMS station with helipad.
The complex has four separate power companies with over 20 individual power plants are available to feed the power needs of the complex as it grows. The complex has applied for LEED platinum rating with low carbon footprint and uses solar, wind and other green alternative sources for non-critical electric needs. The complex is benefitted from extremely low cost of approximately 2 cents per KWH power, and abundant supply from green power plants such as coal-gasification, hydro and natural gas. The complex has multiple gas pipelines to the property as well as onsite natural gas sources that is also used for natural gas powered backup generators. The use of LED lighting where possible reduce heat and lower non-critical power usage. The internal ambient temperature of 52 degrees round the year naturally reduce cooling cost and power consumption. The complex has abundant naturally chilled ground water via artesian wells for green chiller effect.
Stone Mountain Complex is a carrier neutral facility and offers cross connect to virtually all carriers with no cross connect fees. The massive amounts of abundant fiber is installed reaching out to over 300 PoPs. The complex is multi-homed, diverse routed fiber connections for total reliability, and provides satellite uplinks to backup fiber connectivity. Stone Mountain owns and operates the Last Mile of fiber and the meet me rooms.
