Vantage Data Centers, a leader in the wholesale data center space, is extending its facilities to high-growth Phoenix market. The leading provider of data centers in support of business and mission-critical applications has acquired 50 acres of land in the Greater Phoenix area to build a mega-scale data center campus. The site is located just outside of Phoenix in the city of Goodyear.
Vantage Data Centers expects to begin the construction in early 2019. The first building with 32 MW of critical load is expected to be online in early 2020. According to the company, it will be the largest of Vantage’s seven current and planned campuses when complete.
“We continue to strategically expand Vantage’s footprint based on customer and market demands. This newest development in the southwest is an ideal location for our customers due to its tax incentives, low power costs, and rich connectivity. Our strong sales pipeline is a testament that customers are attracted to our high-quality data centers with a focus on sustainable development and operational excellence,” said Sureel Choksi, president and CEO of Vantage Data Centers.
Phoenix will be the company’s sixth data center market. It will harbor three data centers. The campus will be capable of 160MW critical load and will have more than 1 million square feet once fully developed.
Georgia Lord, Goodyear’s Mayor, welcomed the company’s move to the city. “This innovative company leads the way in energy-efficient data centers, and they are changing the landscape of the West Valley to a forward-thinking focus. We welcome them to our growing cluster of technology-based businesses and foresee a great partnership emerging,” he said.
Vantage Data Centers has so far extended its footprint into six strategic markets—Silicon Valley, Northern Virginia, Phoenix, Quincy in Washington, Montreal, and Quebec City, Canada. Last year, it completed construction of its final data center at Vantage’s premier Santa Clara campus, known as V5. The company has nine operational facilities totaling 92MW of capacity and five additional facilities currently under development totaling 103MW.
