Warren Harris, Director of Economic for City of Virginia Beach, and Greg Twitt, Founder and President of Globalinx Data Centers, stopped by to chat with JSA‘s Jaymie Scotto Cutaia on JSA TV while at PTC’18. During their chat, they discussed new technologies coming to the Virginia Beach shores, new subsea cables, a new carrier neutral colo hotel, and so much more.
Globalinx Data Centers is a Tier-III carrier-neutral multi-megawatt data center campus in Virginia Beach, VA, developed to facilitate direct connectivity between subsea fiber and terrestrial fiber systems. The three-phased project boasts 150,000 square-feet of data center space across an 11.5-acre dedicated site. The campus is fortified with high-security, access to more than 30MWs of power through two substations, and direct access to multiple terrestrial and subsea fiber cable systems. The campus also provides direct access to MAREA and BRUSA subsea cables connecting Virginia Beach to Europe, South America and beyond. Globalinx has under contract an additional 10 acres of land for data center development in Virginia Beach, VA. Globalinx owns a colocation facility at 3800 Village Avenue, Norfolk, VA.
“Virginia Beach offers some of the most attractive incentives for data centers in the country,” comments Greg Twitt, Founder and President of Globalinx. “The appeal of competitive tax rates and local incentives combined with robust power capabilities at truly reasonable rates is amplified by access to two of the most modern subsea cable systems ever to be built. No other location along the Eastern Seaboard offers this opportunity, making Virginia Beach the number one destination for mid-Atlantic connectivity between North America, South America, Europe and North Africa.”
