Vantage Data Centers has completed the construction of a new facility on its Santa Clara campus, adding 15MW of IT load to the site.

The new expansion for Vantage, which offers wholesale data centre solutions, takes the Santa Clara, California, campus to 75MW in total split across five data centres.

The V5 facility includes several new features, such as a new cooling system that combines outside air and a chilled water loop that Vantage claims is more sustainable.

The expansion in Santa Clara is the latest for Vantage, which has also building a new 42-acre campus in Ashburn Virginia. This will offer 108MW of capacity, with the first building – carrying 24MW of capacity – due to be completed early next year.

“Silicon Valley continues to be a vital and strategic market for our customers,” said Vantage president and CEO Sureel Choksi. “With the completion of this addition to Vantage’s existing Santa Clara Campus, and construction of our second campus in Santa Clara well underway, Vantage will remain the best choice for supporting the growth of our customers through the future.”

“We’re particularly proud of the gains in performance and cooling we’ve made with this new expansion,” said Lee Kestler, CCO of Vantage.

“Vantage’s continued dedication to providing sustainable value, optimized for the wholesale environment, is one of the reasons we’ve had such success in Silicon Valley. As we continue to expand and move into new markets, we will remain committed to our standards of value, efficiency, and sustainability.”
