Vantage Signs Leading Tech Security Company on Unique Build for Lab Space and Critical Infrastructure
Santa Clara, CA – Vantage Data Centers (Vantage), a leading provider of data center solutions in support of mission-critical applications, today announced that Symantec Corporation, a Fortune 500 company operating one of the largest global data-intelligence networks, will deploy a multi-megawatt mixed-use data center with Vantage in Santa Clara. The hybrid deployment, uniquely tailored to Symantec’s needs, includes both lab space and critical IT infrastructure. With proximity to Symantec’s Mountain View headquarters being of high-importance, Vantage was uniquely positioned to serve Symantec given its ability to accommodate a purpose-built, mixed-redundancy space.
“We’re hearing from a number of companies in the Bay Area that are looking to consolidate their lab spaces into a single location,” said Sureel Choksi, President and CEO, Vantage. “Vantage is very pleased to be partnering with Symantec on this hybrid deployment.” The combination of R&D with critical infrastructure called for Vantage to create a customized data hall for the Symantec deployment. Since the redundancy typical of most data center arrangements was not critical for the company’s lab environment, Vantage designed a solution with only the essential capabilities required by the customer, providing an “N” (or non-redundant) power configuration. For the production and critical infrastructure, however, power back-up is an absolute must. For this reason, Vantage designed a “2N” configuration for critical infrastructure alongside the “N” configured lab environment, altogether providing a bespoke multi-megawatt solution of mixed-power-use.
With their labs consolidated to a single location, Symantec can now operate from a standardized place of deployment and with the ability to manage testing facilities in a controlled environment. This purpose-built data center solution makes possible significant leveraging of cost efficiencies and provides operational transparency for the company’s R&D data infrastructure. As a result of strong leasing traction, Vantage has accelerated the expansion of its Santa Clara campus. Vantage is currently developing 9MW of additional capacity, scheduled for delivery later this year.
Vantage’s tailored data center solutions help meet unique requirements and deliver operational excellence to a wide range of customers. The company’s campuses in Santa Clara and Quincy, Washington include four enterprise-grade data centers totaling over 100MW of potential capacity. Vantage’s highly reliable, energy efficient facilities, coupled with beneficial utility costs, provide customers with significant total cost of ownership advantages.
