• Silicon Valley SV1 Data Center Construction Updates

Stay up to date on the latest news and milestones from our new Silicon Valley data center campus currently under construction.

April 2021

SV1 has officially opened on April 1st. To learn more about our newest 16 MW data center, Silicon Valley, SV1 click here.

SV1's data vaults are complete and move in ready. 

March 2021

The load banks at SV1 have been turned on acting as stand in servers testing full load. Once each individual component is tested they are run all at one time. Once the test is complete, the load banks are rolled out of the facility and the vault is ready for final completion.

February 2021

Our NTT logo has been added to the exterior of the SV1 data center campus. The data center is getting closer and closer to completion each day. The final details are being added to be completed by April 1.

November 2020

Electrical gear is currently being installed. Electrical gear is fed by the electrical modules which are powered by the utility provider. 

October 2020

The generators are being installed on site. They are used to power the facility in the event of an outage. 

The generator is being placed on the pad.

August 2020

July 2020

Concrete Massonary Unit Wall (CMU) in place. The gap in the 3-story steel paneling is for access to place the pre-manufactured generators inside and to be sealed once in place. 

Level one and two concrete placement complete.  

June 2020

SV1 Fireproofing

The team is adding Sprayed Fire- Resistant Material (SFRM) a spray on layer of fireproofing that contains gypsum and other materials like mineral wool, quartz, perlite, or vermiculite to the lower level of the building. The spray helps to delay or prevent the failure of steel by thermally insulating the structural members to keep them below the temperatures that cause failure in the event of a fire.

SV1 Topping Off

May 2020

The team has built the second, third, and fourth floor topping the building off. 16 MW of IT power will be distributed throughout the 160,000 sq. ft. facility.

April 2020

SV1 Steel Walls

The team is in the process of installing the building's steel framing. The steel is anchored to the cement flooring that sits on top of the base isolators.

March 2020

The final section of the base isolation system's triple bearing base isolators have been installed. Listen to Anoop Mokah, Vice President of Earthquake Protection Systems detail how the triple bearing base isolators operate in the event of an earthquake. To learn more about how the base isolation system works read the following article Taking Earthquake Protection to the Next Level in Data Centers by Bob Woolley our Sr. Vice President of Operations.

NTT Silicon Valley Data Center - Earthquake-resistant Base Isolation System Installation

The first section of the base isolation system has been installed at our Silicon Valley SV1 Data Center. The isolators are a very important piece to the state-of-the-art base isolation system, it works to protect the building during an earthquake by following the movement of the earth preventing the building itself from moving. The isolators move 3 meters in any direction to help keep the building in place. There is a greater chance that the building will stay operational after a seismic event when built with isolators.

March 2019

We have purchased land and have begun developing a new world-class, 16 megawatt data center “Silicon Valley SV1 Data Center” in Santa Clara, the heart of the tech capital of the world.With a total of 160,000 sq. ft. and 16MW of critical IT power, SV1 is an ideal choice for companies needing data center capacity in this top market where new inventory sells quickly. This facility is the first in Santa Clara to use an earthquake-resistant design featuring an innovative base isolation system. Our campus will also include 100 percent green energy capabilities.
