Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR) says it plans to expand its Silicon Valley Connected Campus by adding a facility at 3205 Alfred Street in Santa Clara, CA. The company expects to make an approximately $75 million investment in the new facility, and delivery is scheduled for the first quarter of 2018, the provider says. Digital Realty says its current Silicon Valley holdings are almost fully leased.
Located on fiber routes close to three Silicon Valley Power sub-stations, Digital Realty's existing Silicon Valley campus consists of 17 properties totaling more than 2 million square feet, with 99 MW of IT load. According to Digital Realty, Santa Clara is a supply-constrained metro area, and the new Alfred Street facility will provide two suites totaling 6 MW of IT load to address customer growth demands within that area.
"The expansion of our Silicon Valley Connected Campus demonstrates our commitment to supporting customer growth," said A. William Stein, Digital Realty CEO. "We are pursuing LEED gold certification for 3205 Alfred Street, building upon our commitment to sustainability. The new facility offers a comprehensive set of data center solutions, from single-cabinet colocation and interconnection requirements, all the way up to multi-megawatt deployments. This flexibility helps reduce complexity and accelerate business growth by meeting customers' needs for space, power, and connectivity."
A data center, colocation, and interconnection service provider, Digital Realty acquired Telx in October 2015, positioning the company to provide an array of data center services worldwide to meet customers' needs. According to the company, it merged with Dupont Fabros Technology in June of this year to support a large portion of customers' IT lifecycle by meeting data center needs, from single cabinet to multi-megawatt, up to global hyperscale deployments.
