Strategically located on 98 acres of land in the Dulles technology corridor of Northern Virginia, the Ashburn Campus boasts data centre buildings that support both Turn-Key Data Centres and Powered Base Building (PBB) configurations. The campus is located 10 minutes from Washington Dulles International Airport and adjacent to the future Metro rail station. The property is in close proximity to the MAE East Internet Exchange Point providing premier connectivity and access to an extensive fibre network already in place.
The facility is situated on a secure campus protected by perimeter fencing, manned guard gates, berms and hard-scaping. Each building has a single, main entry point protected by card-key access and a 24x7x365 guard station. Additional security is provided by CCTV and biometric access controls. HVAC, Power and building critical systems are managed and monitored 24x7x365 by highly trained Digital Realty employees.
The Ashburn campus is powered by 80 MW from the Greenway Substation which is located on Digital Realty's property. The construction of a second dedicated substation, the Enterprise Substation, also located on Digital Realty's property was constructed and completed in early 2014. This brings the total capacity of the Digital Ashburn campus to 230MW. Power is distributed to each building via dedicated underground, concrete encased duct banks. The power is provided by one of the most reliable transmission systems in the country with reduced risk of electrical interruptions and rates that are below the national average.
