Through an affiliated venture, colocation services provider CentralColo has acquired the 280,000-square foot Tysons Technology Center in Vienna, Virginia. The data center is strategically located just off the Washington DC beltway, equidistant from downtown Washington, DC and Ashburn, Virginia, within the Tysons Corner market.
The property consists of a 200,000-square foot Tier 3 data center and an 80,000-square foot office building and campus on 14.5 acres. CentralColo has already introduced the first new customer to the data center, Atlantic Metro/InfoRelay, a cloud, network, managed services, and managed hosting provider.
Today, the connectivity-rich data center features 9 megawatts of capacity for anchor enterprise customers that include some of the world’s largest hyper scale cloud and network providers, as well as government organizations. Total occupancy of the project exceeds 75% and CentralColo plans to add an additional 4 megawatts over the next twelve to eighteen months.
CentralColo is an operator of data centers offering both hybrid IT and colocation services to a global client base. In August 2016, Safanad and San Francisco-based investment firm, Industry Capital, announced a partnership to invest in CentralColo.
CentralColo‘s first facility is a large carrier neutral, network dense and “cross connect friendly” Tier III data center with over 8 MW of IT load in the heart of Silicon Valley.
