V2 is the second building housed within the Vantage Santa Clara Campus and will provide data center modules designed to scale the facility from 9 to 18 MWs, allowing customers to immediately request more power without any additional construction, moving of equipment or service disruption. Vantage also announced the Apollo Innovation Initiative, a data center development framework integrating comprehensive design, project development and program management processes led by data center domain-area experts.

The Apollo Initiative allows Vantage to build highly efficient, next-generation data centers at a fraction of the risk and time normally associated with current practices in the data center industry, that deliver quantifiable benefits to business customers. The first Santa Clara data center (V3) commissioned 6MW in less than six months from the start of construction and is a LEED® Platinum candidate. V2, now under construction, leverages design philosophies similar to the recently announced Open Compute Project specifications for mechanical (cooling) delivery, showing a like-minded approach to identifying the most effective means to build with high efficiency components and systems.
