What Makes Data Center Ashburn Stand Out

Ashburn’s impact on the Internet and fiber expansion was propelled by a couple of factors. The reasonable cost of land ownership, 28% lower electricity cost when compared to US average, and proximity to business-rich Washington D.C., all created excellent conditions for the growth and development of data centers in the area.

phoenixNAP’s Ashburn data center is part of Loudoun County, often referred to as “Data Center Alley”. More than two thirds of global Internet traffic pass through this area daily. This makes it suitable ground for all sorts of data-driven businesses, leveraging the local pool of IT resources and East Coast Connectivity. Constantly growing and developing, Loudoun County currently boasts 20 million square feet of data centers, with 4 million in active development.

phoenixNAP takes advantage of Ashburn’s strategic position to provide businesses with quality storage and network services, high reliability, and advanced security for protecting business-critical data.

Over $19 billion has been budgeted for cybersecurity investments for Washington D.C. and the surrounding region for 2021.
