STACK INFRASTRUCTURE, a wholesale data center solutions company, has announced plans to expand its data center campus in Silicon Valley. The project has been named an ‘Economic Development’ priority by both PG&E and the State of California.
Capitalizing on the momentum of recent leasing success in Silicon Valley, STACK intends to break ground on a new building within its existing Silicon Valley data center campus. The planned 32MW, 240,000-square-foot data center will be adjacent to STACK’s existing San Jose facility.
As with the rest of the campus, the new building is expected to be served through PG&E’s Direct Access program, which enables STACK to procure energy from renewable sources on behalf of its clients, effectively reducing their energy costs. This data center addition would help acknowledge Silicon Valley’s standing as one of the largest and most critical data center markets in the world, due to its proximity to leading technology and cloud companies.
“As home to a number of the world’s leading technology companies, Silicon Valley is undoubtedly one of the most compelling markets in the world for data center investment,” said Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of STACK. “We consider our ability to deliver cost-efficient, renewable energy to be extremely important in this market where our clients are seeking strategic proximity. We’re confident that our newest development will help our clients fulfill critical business requirements in a world-class facility.”
STACK’s Data Center Projects in 2019
STACK’s Silicon Valley development is the fourth expansion project to take place since the company’s launch in 2019. The Silicon Valley development follows several projects announced by STACK in 2019, which support the company’s commitment to building capacity in key markets to support its clients’ evolving growth trajectories:
- October 2019 – STACK announced its expansion into a new market, New Albany, Ohio, via the acquisition of a purpose-built, Tier III data center. STACK’s New Albany campus includes development land that has the potential to add an additional 32MW of capacity
- September 2019 – STACK announced plans for a 60+MW expansion of its Portland data center campus, currently under development
- June 2019 – STACK announced plans for a 20+MW, multi-story data center adjacent to its existing facility in Chicago, also currently under development
