March 12, 2009 -- Quality Technology Services (QualityTech), a privately-held provider of data center facilities and managed services, announced that facility work is complete on its 60,000 sq. ft. data center and office technology space in Santa Clara, CA. The facility is set to open in early spring for business. QualityTech currently manages and operates more than 2 million square feet of data center space with a market value in excess of over half-a-billion dollars.
The data center consists of a 60,000 square feet raised floor footprint (a 30,000 sq. ft. first floor and a 30,000 sq. ft. second floor). Multiple Silicon Valley Power substations feed 4.8 MW of power through a dual feed to the facility at primary switchgear (PSG) generating 3.25 MW of UPS to critical data center equipment.
One-third of the facility's space has already been accounted for by current client growth. "As with all QualityTech locations, the Santa Clara data center will provide an extensive list of managed services customized for our clients," says Chad Williams, the company's CEO and chairman.
"QualityTech has initiated an improvement project to add 50,000 square feet of raised floor and 7 megawatts of useable UPS power in a second building. Additionally, Silicon Valley Power is placing a new substation adjacent to our facility. This project is presently in the planning stages and is scheduled to be complete in the first quarter of 2010," adds Mark Waddington, president of QualityTech. "The upgrade project and the purchase of the sister building will enable us to expand our business in the Silicon Valley even further and allows us to establish a formidable presence in the market."
With state-of-the-art data center facilities located in key markets throughout the United States, offering a full suite of managed services, QualityTech says it has experienced consistent growth and expansion since its inception in 2005.
