CoreSite, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider and subsidiary of American Tower Corporation, has secured approval from Santa Clara’s Planning Commission to commence construction of its 34 critical megawatt, 200,000 square foot data centre – known as SV9 – along with a substation on the site, which is located at 2905 Slender Way.
CoreSite said that this new purpose-built data centre will expand its Silicon Valley market footprint, complementing its existing SV3, SV4, SV5, SV6, SV7 and SV8 data centres. The company added that construction of SV9 is expected to be complete by 2023, and that pre-leasing will be available soon.
“Our approach to data centre design and construction is purposeful,” said Rob Dean, CoreSite’s VP of Design and Construction. “CoreSite’s campus model is driven by customer demand and requirements. This Silicon Valley market expansion is further testament that leading enterprises and service integrators require modern and efficient data centres that can provide native access to the leading cloud providers and a comprehensive interconnection ecosystem to ensure an exceptional customer experience.”
The company provides an ecosystem of networks and direct access to a number of leading public and private cloud providers – including companies such as AWS, Alibaba, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure – to improve application performance, reduce total cost of ownership, and expedite time to market.
“Our Silicon Valley campus uniquely provides a variety of colocation options and native cloud onramps in the heart of one of the largest concentrations of internet and technology companies in the world,” stated Maile Kaiser, SVP, Sales and Marketing.
“With more than 205 cloud, network and IT service providers available within our data centers, as well as continual investment toward in-market campus expansions, CoreSite is equipped to meet the infrastructure needs of tomorrow, today,” she concluded.
CoreSite owns 24 data centers, totaling over 4.6mn sqft, in eight markets across the US.
