Vantage Data Centers Selected as a FiRe 2011 FiReStarter Company

FRIDAY HARBOR, WA--(Marketwire - May 2, 2011) - Strategic News Service is proud to announce that Vantage Data Centers has been selected as a 2011 FiReStarter company, to be featured at its annual Future in Review (FiRe) technology conference. FiReStarter companies are selected based on their potential to bring positive change to the world, and are showcased before, after and during the conference, both onstage and at an exclusive investor reception.

With a total capacity of 37MW of effective IT power capacity in its initial Santa Clara campus, Vantage Data Centers can not only offer its customers the widest variety of product sizes on the market, but can provide assurance their businesses can continue to grow with ample power and cooling capacity on hand to support their needs. The company's large, "standard" 3.0MW modules are also designed to encompass modern data center requirements and avoid the pitfalls inherent with inefficient and expensive 20th-century POD, container and shared facilities architectures.

"Enterprises today demand an entirely new wholesale data center business model built on the essential foundations of scalability, efficiency, flexibility and cost containment," said Jim Trout, President and CEO of Vantage Data Centers. "Today's data centers need to be more efficient and scalable than ever, saving enterprises money, while conserving community resources."

Future in Review is an annual gathering of world-class thought leaders in technology and economics. FiRe attendees convene each year with the goal of solving major world problems; a goal that is consistently met through FiRe's collaboration across disparate industries and the intellectual and strategic guidance of FiRe Chair and SNS CEO, Mark Anderson. Now in its ninth year, Future in Review 2011 will take place May 24-27th at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, California. The Economist has called FiRe "The best technology conference in the world."

"Vantage Data Centers is setting a new efficiency standard for enterprise data centers. Their advanced designs and construction practices help organizations significantly reduce IT costs while becoming better stewards of environmental resources," said Anderson, FiRe Chair and SNS CEO.
