Web Hosting WireDenver, CO – CoreSite, a national data center, colocation and peering provider, announces today the planned opening of a new, highly-energy efficient data center campus in Santa Clara, California. Phase one of the proposed three building development project is scheduled to be delivered in the first quarter of 2010.

Upon completion, phase one will yield eight megawatts of electrical capacity and 50,000 square feet of new data center space. CoreSite’s development plans also include two additional 180,000 square foot data centers which would deliver a total power capacity of 49 megawatts.

[swfobj src=”” width=”300/250″ align=”right”]CoreSite’s Santa Clara data center campus will be built to LEED Gold certification standards and features air-side economization, which reduces energy consumption by using outside air to cool the data center. The ability to use “free air” and other important energy efficient design aspects such as 95%-efficient UPS units, variable-speed fans, and zoned lighting will help to significantly reduce the Santa Clara data center’s Power Usage Effectiveness (P.U.E.). The highly-efficient design supports concurrent maintainability with a 2N UPS configuration, ensuring maximum uptime levels.

In addition to energy efficient design, CoreSite Santa Clara will offer enhanced security features such as mantraps, CCTV surveillance and biometric scanners. Once construction and commissioning are complete, CoreSite’s Santa Clara data center will undergo a SAS 70 audit.

“CoreSite Santa Clara will showcase the company’s expertise in delivering high-value, reliable, and energy-efficient data centers from the ground up,” commented Billie Haggard, CoreSite vice president of data centers. “The Santa Clara data center design combines what is best for our customers and what is best for the environment in a truly ‘win-win’ scenario.”

CoreSite estimates the total three-building Santa Clara data center investment at $350 million upon completion. In addition to the Santa Clara data center campus, CoreSite currently operates two other Bay Area data centers, as well as eight other facilities across the United States.
