Digital Fortress Unveils Richmond Data Center

Digital Fortress has unveiled its Richmond, VA campus, a 100-acre development in the rapidly growing Richmond data center market. With more than $100 million invested in the campus to date, this flagship property features a fully built out, 250,000-square-foot Tier III data center immediately available for customer deployments. 

The site is connected with a newly built fully diverse multi-duct fiber system offering 4ms latency to hubs in Ashburn and Virginia Beach, and onward direct connectivity to subsea fiber systems serving Europe and South America.

Jhoan Checo, chief sales officer at Seattle-based Digital Fortress, said, “With significant expansion capabilities within the existing data center shell and on the wider campus, we look forward to welcoming the needs of our most demanding digital economy customers and serving their needs from Richmond.”
