In Line With Its Plans for Hyperscale Expansion, Vantage Data Centers Continues to Strategise to Meet Customer Demand for AI and Cloud Technologies

During a time of huge digital transformation, Vantage Data Centers is keen to continue expanding to meet the new and unprecedented demand for data.

The company continues to be a leading global provider of hyperscale data centre campuses and has committed itself to strategic expansions and partnerships in order to better support its growth. In particular, it recently announced a US$6.4bn equity investment managed by global digital investors, DigitalBridge and Silver Lake.

Investments of this scale aim to accelerate the company’s data centre capabilities across North America and EMEA and accelerate AI and cloud adoption. 

Strategic data centre expansions facilitate long-term plans for industry growth

Aiming to partner with hyperscalers around the world, Vantage Data Centers hope to be better equipped to meet growing demands for cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

Silver Lake first launched Vantage in 2010 as a single data centre campus on a former Intel site in Santa Clara, California. Digital Bridge then acquired Vantage in 2017 and has been a key strategy partner ever since, emphasising the company’s desire to support cloud and AI adoption amid widespread customer demand. 

The company now has 32 operational or developing hyperscale data centre campuses worldwide, including 25 in North America and EMEA.

An investment of this scale helps the company strategically expand and work towards its long-term goals of matching customer demand for data. Vantage Data Centers is particularly keen to develop its already forward-thinking data centre model with AI, high-performance computing (HPE) and machine learning capabilities to continue to help its customers grow their digital strategies.

In addition, it relates to the recently announced €1.5bn (US$1.64bn) investment by AustralianSuper into Vantage EMEA. All factors combined, it highlights a long-term commitment to providing innovative data centre solutions to business leaders.

Also part of the company’s investment plan is Vantage’s strategic land acquisition, which is expected to drive an estimated US$30bn of additional development. The company will continue to develop next-generation data centres, including energy-efficient and sustainable designs purpose-built for AI and cloud deployments.

“We are delighted that Silver Lake is joining DigitalBridge to support Vantage’s continued expansion across North America and EMEA,” says Sureel Choksi, President and CEO of Vantage Data Centers.

“Cloud computing, AI and related technologies are driving unprecedented demand for digital infrastructure. The market opportunity in front of us is extraordinary, and we are excited to chart our next phase of growth with two premier investors who have been great partners to us and have an unmatched understanding of our global technology customers and their infrastructure needs.”
