Prime Data Centers, a data center developer and operator, has announced the development of a new four-story, 119,000 square-foot data centre in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Located at 1231 Comstock Street in Santa Clara, California, Prime will begin construction on the facility in the second half of 2023. This carrier-neutral facility is strategically located at the center of major fiber routes following diverse paths to the top Tier 1 long haul and metro providers, the company said.
“We are excited to continue to expand our presence in Silicon Valley and the greater San Francisco Bay Area,” says Nicholas Laag, CEO of Prime Data Centers. “The region is as systemically important as ever and we’re seeing strong demand from the world’s most influential companies.”
Access to new dark fiber
In addition, Prime Data Centers has secured access to new dark fiber routes to all major interconnection facilities in Silicon Valley. Delivering up to 9MW of critical power, available immediately upon construction completion, the property benefits from up to 40 per cent lower utility rates than other Bay Area providers due to its strategic location outside of the San Francisco metro area.
One of the facility’s most significant advantages is its proximity to the thriving Bay Area, where it can meet the demand for ultra-low latency workloads and deliver content closer to the edge. Additional benefits will include private and shared office space, secure staging and storage adjacent to a loading dock, and ample on-site parking.
The new data centre at 1231 Comstock is just down the block from another Prime Data Centers facility at 1111 Comstock Street and nearby Prime’s 2175 Martin Avenue property. This geographically concentrated activity demonstrates Prime’s optimism about the future of the wholesale data centre market in Silicon Valley.
Prime plans to make more announcements about additional Silicon Valley projects in the coming months.
