Collaboration to center around Data Center Alley and New Mexico large-scale data center developments.
West Virginia / Nevada (Sept. 17, 2014) — DC Corp has partnered with Wired Real Estate Group Inc. (“WiredRE”) for strategy, development, and awareness within the cloud, colocation, and data center market. Just 60 miles west of Ashburn’s “Data Center Alley”, the West Virginia data center market has seen abundant activity, becoming home to data centers for Salesforce.com, NOAA Supercomputer, IRS, and U.S. Coast Guard. The region overall is host to 8 of the 10 largest colocation providers, including AT&T, CoreSite, Digital Realty Trust, DuPont Fabros Technology, Equinix, Level 3 Communications, Savvis (CenturyLink), and Terremark (Verizon). The region has an estimated 75 colocation and data center facilities operated by 30 providers.
“Our offerings are attractive to firms with global scale and demanding IT standards,” commented Charles Asbury, CEO, DC Corp. “WiredRE’s global reach and marquee relationships are the perfect complement to our industrial-scale colocation services.” DC Corp’s flagship facility encompasses 30 acres, 180,000 Sq-Ft under roof and 30 MW of utility supply. The location is ideal owing to low cost of power at 3.5 cents, proximity to the DC metropolitan area, low risk of natural disasters, temperate climate, and tax incentives (sales abatement and property tax incentives).
“DC Corp is an exceptional alternative to data center REITs that have put tax structure ahead of service and flexibility,” commented Everett Thompson, WiredRE CEO. “The large scale and high performance compute infrastructure is enclosed in a high security envelope and includes features that demanding users will find hard to find elsewhere.”
Connectivity has been a central focus of DC Corp’s development strategy. The firm partners with Lumos, Comcast, and Frontier to supply physically and logically diverse connections into the Martinsburg One facility, to the Washington, D.C. region and throughout the Northeast and greater New York City area.
