Vantage Data Centers plans to build a new, 9-acre campus in Santa Clara, California. The newly announced expansion will deliver 51MW 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.
The new 9-acre site is located approximately 2 miles from Vantage's existing Santa Clara campus. The company anticipates 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 51MW 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.”
Some company highlights:
- Vantage’s $295M bank facility upsizing, completed in February 2016, increased the credit facility to $570M in total and will support continued growth and expansion.
- Vantage has 15MW of capacity under construction at its first Santa Clara campus, including its new 6MW V4 facility, all of which are scheduled for completion by fall of 2016. Total campus operational critical IT load will be 51MW by the end of 2016.
- Vantage has initiated development of 21MW of additional expansion on its first Santa Clara campus, which will deliver capacity in phases beginning in the second half of 2017.
