Vantage Data Centers has announced the completion of phase one of the Ashburn campus located in the heart of “Data Center Alley” in Northern Virginia.

The 42-acre campus will consist of five data centers totaling 142 MW and more than 1 million square feet when fully developed. Phase one provides customers with 6 MW of critical IT capacity and is the company’s largest campus in history to welcome customers.

“As we open the doors at our newest campus, we are attracting major hyperscale, cloud and enterprise prospects across the globe,” said Lee Kestler, chief commercial officer, Vantage. “We have a robust pipeline of activity, and we are now focused on ramping up the second phase of development to keep up with demand.”

Customers can expect the same premier wholesale data center services that the company offers in its other Tier 1 markets. The Ashburn campus features a new design complete with extensive diverse fiber connections, as well as solar and wind energy sources onsite, the first of its kind in Northern Virginia. Customers will also benefit from the campus’ industry-leading power usage effectiveness (PUE) and water usage effectiveness (WUE), and Class A amenities including office space, conference rooms and breakrooms.

“Loudoun County is the largest data center market in the world and companies like Vantage help make that a reality,” said Buddy Rizer, executive director of economic development for Loudoun County. “With our continued growth throughout the region, the demand for data centers is skyrocketing. Companies from all over the world are seeking out providers like Vantage in Loudoun due to our low power rates, favorable business climate and talented workforce.”

Phase two of the campus will consist of an additional 8 MW of IT capacity and is scheduled for completion in August.
