Wholesale data center operator Prime Data Centers, has just announced the development of its new four-story data center in Silicon Valley, precisely at 1111 Comstock Street, Santa Clara, California.

The 121,000 square foot data center will be a carrier-neutral facility located at the center of major fiber routes following diverse paths to Tier 1 long haul and metro providers. According to Prime Data Centers, the new facility is expected to deliver up to 9MW of critical power, and benefits from lower utility rates than other Bay Area providers due to its location outside of the San Francisco metro area.

“We are excited to develop this new facility in Santa Clara, one of the most sought-after data center locations in the world. Prime Data Centers is breaking ground at this location so that we can continue to offer the most strategic and advantageous wholesale data center leasing in California,” said Nicholas Laag, CEO of Prime Data Centers.

Prime’s new Silicon Valley facility is scheduled to be ready for tenants in late 2021, and developed to join the company’s existing facilities located across California, including Prime’s Sacramento 70,000 square foot facility in McClellan Park, CA, and a fully-leased facility in Hayward, CA.

Prime Data Centers opened the 8MW Sacramento data center facility in January, which marks the company’s first data center to be developed on the 38-acre Prime campus with a dedicated 50MVA sub-station on-site, having the ability to accommodate an extra 100MVA.

Few weeks ago, T5 Data Center launched its recently acquired enterprise-owned data center which is also located in Silicon Valley, in the East Bay suburb of Newark. This T5@Silicon Valley facility currently features a 128,000 square foot building with 17MW of critical power capacity. T5’s expansion plan includes the development of an additional 32.1 MW, 180,000 square foot building on the site.
