The latest step in Backblaze’s power expansion has seen the leading independent storage cloud platform contract for 1MW of power at Nautilus’ Stockton data centre, located in California. 

Nautilus' Stockton data centre operates at the highest levels of energy efficiency, achieving a net zero water consumption, operating without refrigerants or water treatment chemicals, thereby operating without causing any harm to the surrounding wildlife.
