USA FIBER engineers, builds and operates mission critical underground conduit and dark fiber networks for clients, today announced the signing of one of the top three largest cloud services companies in the world in its newly installed conduit and dark fiber platform in Ashburn, VA.
The client selected USA FIBER for the scale of inventory, quality of the construction and the engineering specifications within its secure underground conduit infrastructure.
In terms of overall power capacity, Northern Virginia, with a concentration in Ashburn, is the United States´ largest data center market. With over 425 MW of commissioned critical power, this extremely mature market traces its roots to the US Government´s experiments in wide area fiber optic networking in 1969.
Since then, the Northern Virginia area became a hub of low-latency connections to the national fiber network backbone serving Washington, DC´s largest public and private enterprises. USA FIBER is one of the newest and largest infrastructure owners in the Ashburn market. Cloud services companies, like the one that just signed with USA FIBER, require a scale unprecedented in the industry, consuming multiple conduits to support the massive compute power.
As an example of this scale, the compute power consumed in a full year, just four years ago, is now being consumed every month on leading cloud platforms.
