Ownership: CoreSite owns the building.
CoreSite acquired VA1 in 2008. The building was previously known as Sunrise Technology Park and was used by America Online.
The VA2 data center meets stringent government and defense contractor security requirements with features including 50 foot setbacks, internal and external CCTV surveillance, biometric scanner checkpoints and 24/7 on-site security. The renovation of this SAS70 Type II facility required the coordination of multiple 35.5 kilovolt power feeds and tie ins to the building’s central cooling plant to provide 2,800 tons of air conditioning in the space.
To accommodate the power feeds and cooled air delivery systems, 24-inch antistatic raised flooring was installed. The completed data center’s power density is up to 25 kilowatts per cabinet and is capable of accommodating nearly 12 critical megawatts of IT load.
