Digital Fortress, a multi-tenant and wholesale data center provider headquartered in Seattle, Washington has expanded into the Richmond, Virginia market. Originally owned and operated by Capital One, Digital Fortress acquired the built-out facility in Richmond, Virginia. The data center campus includes a 150 kilowatt solar farm as well. Digital Fortress remodeled the facility and installed concurrently maintainable systems, including an additional chiller loop that scaled the facility to 6.6 megawatts in just 12 weeks. The site also includes a 196,625 square foot shell and core space ready for customization that can support up to 25 MW.

Give Digital Fortress eight to nine months and those 25 MW will be fully built out. The robust campus is both extremely secure and LEED Gold certified. Strategically speaking, the company’s newly constructed fiber route interconnects with both the subsea cable landing stations in Virginia Beach and Ashburn. With the facility located in between both locations, Digital Fortress now has easy access to both with latency under 4ms in either direction.
