Phoenix Data Center Features

Power

Power

Vantage’s Phoenix campus will feature a highly modularized electrical equipment design to ensure maximum efficiency and reliability. The planned campus will offer N+1 redundancy across all systems, all supported by a world-class, in-house operations team ensuring customer uptime.

  • Powered by Arizona Public Service Company (APS)
  • Dedicated substation onsite
  • Multiple, diverse utility power feeds supporting the campus
  • Receiving power at 69+kV and distributing around campus at 12kV and 480V within the building
  • All systems 100% concurrently maintainable

Cooling

Cooling

Vantage will use efficient, reliable cooling systems at the new Phoenix campus. The campus will leverage a highly efficient closed-loop chilled water system generated through air-cooled chillers. The cooling system will also include an integrated economizer capability that allows reduced compressor energy based on outside ambient temperature, so when the weather is favorable, cooling becomes more sustainable and less resource intensive.

  • Computer Room Air Handling (CRAH) units located in galleries of each data module allow for highly efficient airflow distribution
  • Closed-loop chilled water system with air-side economizers
  • Planned N+2 redundancy across all mechanical systems
  • Planned Water Utilization Efficiency (WUE) is near zero (liters/kW/hr) based on closed-loop chilled water system design

Connectivity

Connectivity

Vantage Phoenix will offer multiple, diverse fiber pathways into the campus with access to both dark and lit fiber. Vantage’s Phoenix campus will be carrier neutral, giving customers the flexibility to manage their own network.

  • Most of the infrastructure in the area will utilize underground deployment topologies
  • Multiple Meet-Me-Rooms (MMRs) throughout campus will allow for diverse paths and multiple connectivity options
  • Four points-of-entry (POEs) for the campus ensuring maximum path diversity for inbound carriers
  • Diverse fiber pathways into the campus (minimum 2 paths per carrier)

Security

Security
