SANTA CLARA, CA – August [..], 2016 – Vantage Data Centers (Vantage), a leading provider of data center solutions in support of mission critical applications, has announced plans to build a new large-scale campus, its second in Santa Clara. The newly announced expansion will deliver 54MW* of critical IT load. This increased capacity is in addition to a 21MW expansion of the existing campus (V5 and V6), which was announced in May of 2016.
Vantage has secured a 9-acre site located approximately 2 miles from its existing Santa Clara campus. Designs for the new campus feature four separate data center buildings and a dedicated substation, with construction starting on the site in 2017. Capacity will be delivered in phases, beginning in 2018.
“Today’s 54MW* new campus announcement underscores Vantage’s strong commitment to supporting our customers’ long term growth in Santa Clara”, said Sureel Choksi, President and CEO, Vantage Data Centers. “When combined with the 21MW planned expansion of our existing campus, Vantage has secured 72MW of total expansion capacity in this highly constrained market, solidifying its position as Santa Clara’s leading wholesale data center services provider.”
“Vantage has acquired land in a coveted Silicon Valley market that is currently experiencing low levels of supply for wholesale data center capacity despite high demand.” said Jabez Tan, Research Director, Data Centre Infrastructure at Structure Research. “Demand fundamentals still remain strong in the Bay Area and the outlook remains bullish for uptake of data center capacity with cloud providers being the primary customers. Location and proximity to end users is a characteristic that continues to drive growth in one of the top data center markets in the US.”
