Data center solutions provider, Vantage Data Centers, has announced a large-scale expansion of its Santa Clara campus with two new planned data centers, named V5 and V6, to be completed in phases beginning the second half of 2017.
The newly announced expansion will deliver 21MW of new capacity. Vantage, which currently operates one of the largest data center campuses in Santa Clara, will expand total campus capacity to 72MW of critical IT load.
Vantage’s expanded Santa Clara campus includes newly acquired property that is directly adjacent and will be the location of V6, while V5 will be built on the Santa Clara campus. These two new facilities are in addition to the previously announced V4 data center facility, which is currently under construction and on target for delivery in late 2016. V5 and V6 are fully funded, following Vantage’s recent $295M bank facility upsizing.
“Today’s 21MW expansion announcement underscores Vantage’s continued commitment to scaling its data centers to accommodate customer growth,” said Sureel Choksi, President and CEO, Vantage Data Centers. “V5 and V6 will be built to the Vantage data center standard, focusing on flexible design to meet customers’ varied needs including supporting both traditional and high density data center designs.”
Vantage Data Centers’ $295M bank facility upsizing, completed in February 2016, increased the credit facility to $570M in total, and will support continued growth and expansion.
Operating data center campuses in Silicon Valley, California, and Quincy, Washington, Vantage Data Centers would deliver data center design solutions engineered to meet unique customer requirements in support of the most demanding large enterprises, technology companies and service providers. Vantage is backed by Silver Lake, a global provider of technology investing, with over $24 billion in combined assets under management and committed capital.
