Company Accelerates Its Growth Trajectory in One of the World’s Most Critical Markets

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — July 13, 2021 — Prime Data Centers, a wholesale data center developer, and operator, announces that it is expanding its presence across Silicon Valley with a new 9MW data center. This build-to-suit turnkey or powered shell facility will be located on Martin Avenue in Santa Clara, California, and is the second Silicon Valley data center for Prime. The data center is strategically positioned among the headquarters of some of the biggest tech companies in the world.

Construction on this three-story data center campus is set to begin this year, and completion is targeted for Q2 of 2022. The finished project will include:

  • Approximately 80,000 square feet of purpose-built data center space 
  • 9MW of critical capacity with N+1 redundancy 
  • World-class connectivity options
  • The most economical and reliable power in Silicon Valley

“Santa Clara is one of the most desired data center locations globally due to its proximity to the vibrant and structurally important San Francisco Bay Area. In addition, the relatively affordable power rates from Silicon Valley Power (SVP) are very advantageous,” says Jeff Barber, EVP Sales and Business Development at Prime. “Yet, it is difficult to find wholesale data center space in this area because of the scarcity and expense of available real estate, and the difficulty of obtaining guarantees that the power is available to service the new capacity. Prime has such assurances from SVP in hand today.”

Prime’s Martin Avenue location is just one mile from its flagship 9MW Santa Clara data center, which was recently pre-leased to Cyxtera. Similarly, the Martin Avenue property is available for pre-lease. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Prime for more information. A brochure is available for download here.
