The Silicon Valley data center market is one of the largest and most important in the U.S., providing space for servers to deploy new hardware and services from the Valley’s marquee technology companies, as well as a legion of fast-moving startups.
The region is facing a shortage of finished data center space due to a dwindling supply of development sites in key data center corridors. The Silicon Valley market is currently experiencing some growing pains. It continues to be a desirable site to deploy IT capacity, but growth is moderating due to challenges in site acquisition.
This places a premium on new projects in Santa Clara, the region’s primary data center hub, due to its lower cost of electric power. But interest is also growing in options in other cities in Silicon Valley, especially San Jose.
The Silicon Valley area is home to nearly 2.6 million square feet (SF) of commissioned data center space, making it the second-largest market for data center space in the U.S., trailing only Northern Virginia.
