SANTA CLARA, CA – Vantage Data Centers, a leading provider of data center solutions in support of mission critical applications, announced that it has secured 42 acres of land in the heart of “Data Center Alley” in Ashburn, Virginia. Ashburn represents the company’s largest expansion to date, with a planned billion-dollar investment to build a new 108MW wholesale data center campus with five buildings that will total over 1 million square feet.
“Vantage’s expansion to Northern Virginia is in direct response to demand from our cloud and large technology enterprise customers, who have expansion plans on the east coast,” said Vantage President and CEO, Sureel Choksi. “We are very excited to expand beyond the west coast to a third market, with our largest data center campus to date. Northern Virginia is a vital and strategic market for our customers and company.”
The Vantage Ashburn campus is situated less than two miles from the densest interconnection points on the east coast and will offer robust fiber connectivity. Vantage will provide Northern Virginia customers with the premier wholesale data center experience it is known for in Silicon Valley and the Pacific Northwest, with significant expansion on-site potential to allow customers to grow with Vantage over the long-term.
Design and permitting for the new campus are under way, with construction expected to begin in early 2018. The first of five planned buildings will total 24MW of capacity.
