Vantage Data Centers, a colocation provider operating data center campuses in Silicon Valley, California, and Quincy, Washington, has initiated ground-up construction of a new six megawatt building on its Santa Clara campus. The new data center, recently approved by the city of Santa Clara, was designed to accommodate rapid increase in demand from customers.
The 6-megawatt data center facility is targeted for completion in Q4 2016, bringing total capacity of the Santa Clara campus to more than 50-megawatts of critical load.
The new two-story building, referred to as V4, will sit adjacent to Vantage Data Centers’ existing V1 facility. This new building will add 43,000 total square feet, including 30,000 square feet of colocation white space, to the Vantage Santa Clara campus. V4 will feature outside air economization to deliver “ultra-low” PUEs and will run a fully redundant 2N electrical system.
“The continued expansion of our flagship campus underscores the continuing demand Vantage sees for high quality data center space in close proximity to Silicon Valley tech enterprises,” said Sureel Choksi, CEO of Vantage Data Centers. “Vantage remains committed to expanding innovative, state-of-the-art facilities to keep pace with our customers’ growth.”
