Vantage Data Centers Delivers Record Growth in 2019, Expands Capacity, Markets and Portfolio

January 21, 2020 GMT

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 21, 2020--

Vantage Data Centers, a leading provider of hyperscale data centers in support of business and mission-critical applications, closed out 2019 with record growth. The company added 41MW of capacity into operation across its North American footprint to meet customer demand. Vantage opened new facilities in Northern Virginia, Santa Clara, California, and Quebec City, in addition to its expansion in Montreal. The company also purchased land outside of Phoenix in Goodyear, Arizona, where it is developing the company’s largest campus to date.

“Our growth in 2019 was extraordinary, fulfilling the goals we set early in the year,” said Sureel Choksi, president and CEO, Vantage Data Centers. “Not only did we expand outside of the U.S. for the first time, we also opened three new facilities and entered four new markets. This tremendous growth has been fueled by demand from hyperscalers, cloud providers and large enterprises and powered by an innovative funding strategy.”

In January 2019, Vantage entered the Canadian market when it acquired 4Degrees Colocation with facilities in Montreal and Quebec City. The company immediately began expansions on both campuses.

The company’s inaugural east coast campus opened in Northern Virginia, the world’s largest data center market. The 42-acre campus will consist of five data centers totaling 142MW and more than 1 million square feet when fully developed. The campus currently consists of one 30MW data center.

Growing its presence in Silicon Valley, Vantage opened its first 21MW data center on its second Santa Clara campus. The three-building campus, located just two miles from the company’s flagship 77MW Santa Clara campus, will total 69MW once complete, providing customers with 146MW of capacity in the region. Vantage now has seven operational facilities in Silicon Valley.

Rounding out its expansion in North America is the addition of Phoenix to the Vantage portfolio. The company purchased 50-acres of land, which will house a 160MW mega-scale campus.

Over the course of 2019, Vantage raised $1.6 billion in capital to support its expansion across North America. In addition, Vantage opened a second headquarters in Denver to facilitate the growth of its employee base.
