Vantage Data Centers has announced that it has initiated ground-up construction of a new 6 megawatt (MW) building on its Santa Clara campus. The new building, recently approved by the city of Santa Clara, was designed to accommodate rapid increase in demand from customers.
Vantage had a record year in 2015, closing several deals with existing and new customers on the largest wholesale data center campus in Silicon Valley. The 6MW facility is targeted for completion in Q4 2016, bringing total capacity of the Santa Clara campus to more than 50MW of critical load.
The new two-story building, referred to as V4, will sit adjacent to the existing V1 facility. V4 will feature outside air economization to deliver ultra-low PUEs and will run a fully redundant 2N electrical system. This new building will add 43,000 total sq ft, including 30,000 sq ft of white space, to the Vantage Santa Clara campus.
“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.”
