• Silicon Valley SV1 Data Center

First base-isolated data center in Silicon Valley 

Our new world-class Silicon Valley SV1 Data Center at 1160 Walsh Ave., Santa Clara, California is strategically located in the heart of the tech capital of the world. With a total of 160,000 sq. ft. and 16 MW of critical IT load, Silicon Valley SV1 provides scale, a proven design, and a rich ecosystem of connectivity options to major carriers, cloud providers, content networks, and other data centers. This facility is the first in Santa Clara to use an earthquake-resistant design featuring an innovative base isolation system.

Structural Protection
A proven base isolation system braces SV1 in the case of a seismic event.

Lower Price
Power from Silicon Valley Power offers rates 25 to 40 percent lower than power from PG&E in surrounding areas.  

Robust Fiber
AT&T, Sprint and Verizon all run long-haul fiber connections on the west side of San Francisco Bay.

Renewable Energy
Renewable power options such as solar, wind and biomass solutions are available.
