Edge Modular Data Center

Not Your Typical Modular Data Center Design

The ever growing load on the cloud infrastructure, a wide range of apps, and the ever increasing number of intelligent devices are driving factors for more edge computing. It is a market estimated to be worth 6.72 billion by 2022. Putting the pressure on edge networks are the proliferation of IoT devices, the need for faster processing, and the increase in cloud adoption.

Data center managers know that a rugged, scalable, cost-effective, and highly-efficient data center product designed and optimized specifically for mission critical operations is key for edge networks. EdgeMCS provides a modular data center solution based on advanced engineering design; it protects mission critical systems and no comparable modular data center products are available on the market today.

What makes the Edge Modular Data Center a unique product?

Data Center Growth Continues in Virginia

Vantage Data Centers, a leading wholesale data center provider on the west coast, has secured 42 acres of land in Ashburn, Virginia to construct a new 108MW wholesale data center campus. The acquisition represents a significant financial investment for Vantage totaling more than $1 billion over the next several years.

data center asburn, virginiaAccording to Vantage, “The Ashburn campus will be larger than any of our current campuses in Silicon Valley and Quincy, Washington. More importantly, it’s an investment in our customers. As you can imagine, the decision to expand beyond our west coast focus is not one we came to lightly. Throughout the process, there was one constant driver to proceed with the expansion: the demands of our customers.”

Ashburn is located in Loudoun County which is referred to as Data Center Alley; see Data Center Alley – Loudoun is King of the Internet. It is a strategic location not just for data center providers, but for data center customers as well. Northern Virginia contains the densest interconnection point on the east coast. Loudoun’s Fast-Track Commercial Incentive Program allows data center operators to get to market in record time.

The region features low-cost power and a valuable sales tax exemption which results in a compelling TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). Construction of Vantage’s Ashburn campus is slated for early 2018; a five-building design and the delivery of the first 24MW building in early 2019. Other data center providers are expanding their operations in Northern Virginia as well; see Northern Virginia Data Center Growth.
