“Our data centers and Las Vegas Peering and Internet Exchange, which provides superior fiber connectivity, will serve as fundamental infrastructure supporting the development of the growing technology industry in Las Vegas,” said Mike Ballard, CEO of Cobalt Data Centers. “We are very excited to be a part of the city’s success and technology diversification. Our Cobalt Cheyenne site is a showcase for the industry on how data centers can be designed and operated in alignment with community interest and environmental stewardship.”
