Vantage Data Centers Sees Strong Silicon Valley Demand

Vantage Data Centers reports robust demand in the heart of Silicon Valley. The company, which took over a former 18-acre Intel facility in Santa Clara, California, is accelerating the construction and availability of V1, the third data center on its three-building campus. The first two data centers building in the complex (V2 and V3) are 100% leased.

The new V1 facility is a 198,000 square feet, two-story data center that will support 22 MWs of IT load when complete. Approximately 40% of V1 is already under contract and the company anticipates the facility will sell out before construction is complete. In December, Telx announced that it had leased 5.7 MWs of capacity in V1. Telx is a strategic tenant who offers a complementary mix of colocation and interconnection services, allowing Vantage to offer more options to current and future customers.

In addition, Vantage Data Centers reported that its V2 facility is delivering a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.12, making it one of the most energy-efficient data centers in the industry. V2 was constructed and leased two years ahead of Vantage’s original business plan and developed in close collaboration with the single tenant now occupying the building.
