A couple of days back Prime Data Centers, a Californian data center company disclosed its plans to build a new data center in the California region.
The company plans to build a second data center in Sacramento campus, California to suffice the growing demands in the Sacramento Metro and San Francisco Bay Area.
Currently, the company has a fully leased 8MW capacity facility named Building-1, situated on the McClellan Park Campus.
Now, the data center operator is looking to extend Sacramento Campus by adding a new facility named Building-2 adjacent to the existing Building-1.
Once the construction of Building-2 is finished, it will offer up to 16MW of critical capacity and 150,000 square feet i.e: twice the size of Building-1.
Besides this, the new facility will provide rack densities ranging from 4.5-30 kW and designed to operate with Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of <1.25.
Prime says that they will start the construction of the new facility in Q2 2022.
Additionally, Prime’s EVP of sales and marketing, Mr. Jeff Barber said that their first building, Building-1 at the McClellan Park got completely occupied and there is no space left to add additional capacity. Hence, they are building a new state-of-the-art facility in the region. The new facility will deliver a sufficient amount of power supply and at remarkably lower pricing.
He further said that the geographic profile is one of the safest in the country without significant latency which is generally observed with data replication.
Meanwhile, the company also aims to build six buildings for 50MW of capacity.
