In Northern Virginia’s “Data Center Alley,” the appetite for cloud capacity is clearly seen in a recent burst of data center leasing, facility openings and land deals.
The increasing need around resources from the business perspective has led to the development of powerful cloud data centers called hyperscale data centers. This post from QTS is a special Data Center Frontier brief covering the top benefits of a hyperscale data center.
Hyperscale has come to mean a lot of things, but at its core is the ability to scale all elements of IT architecture and provision rapidly to meet demand as it increases. This is the final of three entries in a Data Center Frontier series and focuses on the different elements of a hyperscale data center.
With virtualization and cloud computing in the mix, it is more important now than ever to have the right hyperscale data center partner in place. This is the second of three entries in a Data Center Frontier series. This post focuses on how to select the right hyperscale partner.
Hyperscale will represent 47 percent of all installed data center servers by 2020. This is the first of three entries in a Data Center Frontier series that explores how hyperscale will disrupt the data center market.
This Data Center Frontier Special Report on the hyperscale data center market examines the increasing need for data center and cloud resources from both the business and consumer service perspective and how it has led to the development of large-scale cloud-ready data centers built for hyperscale capabilities.

Today, hyperscale cloud operators are increasingly dominating the cloud landscape. But, it’s important to understand why and the business drivers behind this growth around hyperscale data center operators. Download this one page brief about the five benefits and strategies needed when working with hyperscale data center environments.
As large hyperscale leases drive the growth of cloud campuses, QTS Data Centers sees an emerging hyperscale opportunity in its huge Richmond data center, a massive former semiconductor fab.
The Chicago data center market appears poised for growth. Leasing was strong during 2015, with net absorption of 27 MW of capacity. This robust leasing has prompted new construction, with up to 200 MW of additional capacity planned for coming years. There are several new players entering the Chicago market, while incumbent providers are adding space to accommodate future demand.
