Nov 25, 2021 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

VPLS has completed the acquisition of its third data this year by buying Wave Broadband’s facility in Santa Clara, California. The 3MW, 30,000 square feet data center located at 3080 Raymond Street, was acquired for an undisclosed fee. VPLS will rename the data center to SV3. According to reports, there is still 1.5MW of available capacity at the SV3 facility. The vice president and general manager of data centers at VPLS, Jay Smith, spoke about the development. He said the company is happy to expand its global presence by acquiring a data center strategically located in Silicon Valley.

Smith added that the investment in the data center further strengthens the company’s commitment to investing in major markets where their customers need their services the most. Wave Broadband was founded in 2003. It provides Internet, TV, and telephone services to business customers and residents across California, Oregon, and Washington DC. CEO of Wave Broadband, Jim Holanda, said the decision to sell the Santa Clara facility is the best for its customers. He noted that the sale would provide customers with additional facility and product options necessary for colocation.
