Delivering data centers for top cloud providers, hyperscalers and leading technology companies as quickly as the market needs them requires a sound capitalization philosophy. With excellent relationships in both the securitization and banking markets, Vantage Data Centers has a diverse funding pool that, combined with our standardized campus model, allows us to safely and reliably deliver industry-leading campuses at an accelerated pace. Our capital providers have confidence in our leadership and understand that we have a stable and viable business. A consortium of investors keeps us on a solid financial footing.
The people inside. All of them.
Walk through a Vantage data center—racks and servers and chillers and cables—all far outnumber the people. Yet people really are what our data centers are all about, because by supporting the missions of our customers, we’re helping people connect with each other all across the world; meet virtually, whether as co-workers or family; start and run businesses; fully enjoy new technologies; safely archive photos and documents that are truly priceless, or simply irreplaceable to one person.
Recognizing our role in enabling all of the above, we’ve focused on scale, speed-to-market, efficiency, sustainability and operational excellence. And we’ve employed them all to ensure your success and the success of our partnership.
