Head 30 miles northwest of Washington, D.C., and you may stumble upon one of the mid-Atlantic’s best-kept secrets: a data center village that serves as the backbone of the digital world.

Loudoun County, Virginia, is home to wineries, farms and some of the country’s most expensive homes. But it also has over 75 data center facilities covering 10M SF. The county’s data centers manage 70% of the world’s internet traffic. Continued growth throughout the region has led several owners and operators to lease space before their data centers even open. In Loudoun County, the town of Ashburn has earned the title of “Data Center Alley.” With a dense fiber network, a low risk of natural disasters, reliable and affordable utility power, convenient transportation and a significant concentration of wholesale co-location and cloud providers, Ashburn is attractive to companies looking for a large data center footprint with turnkey or build-to-suit infrastructure.
