Prime Data Centers Constructing 9MW Facility in Silicon Valley

Data center developer and operator, Prime Data Centers, has announced the construction of a new four-story, 119,000-square-foot data center in Silicon Valley. Prime will begin building on the facility, which will be located at 1231 Comstock Street in Santa Clara, California, in the second half of 2023.

This carrier-neutral facility is placed at the intersection of key fiber connections that connect to the top Tier 1 long haul and metro providers through varied paths. Prime Data Centers has also gained access to additional dark fiber links to all key interconnection sites in Silicon Valley.

Due to its strategic position outside of the San Francisco metro region, the site would benefit from up to 40% reduced utility costs than other Bay Area suppliers, so the company stated, with up to 9MW of vital power accessible immediately following construction completion.

“We are excited to continue to expand our data center presence in Silicon Valley and the greater San Francisco Bay Area,” said Nicholas Laag, Founder and CEO of Prime Data Centers.

The data center’s closeness to the growing Bay Area is one of its most significant benefits, according to Prime. It would help to fulfill the need for ultra-low latency workloads and provide information closer to the edge. Private and shared office space, secured staging and storage near to a loading dock, and abundant on-site parking will be additional perks.

“We are excited to continue to expand our presence in Silicon Valley and the greater San Francisco Bay Area,” said Nicholas Laag, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Prime Data Centers. “The region is as systemically important as ever and we’re seeing strong demand from the world’s most influential companies.”

The new data center at 1231 Comstock Street is located just down the street from another Prime Data Centers facility at 1111 Comstock Street and close to Prime’s 2175 Martin Avenue property. This regionally concentrated operation would indicate Prime’s optimism about the future of the Silicon Valley wholesale data center sector. Prime anticipates making further announcements about Silicon Valley initiatives in the coming months.
