Verizon Enterprise Solutions has just completed a significant expansion of the NAP of the Capital Region, the company’s data center campus located in Culpeper, Virginia. Following are some quick facts on Verizon’s newest data center:

  • 60,000 square feet of leasable capacity
  • The largest of four data center on the Culpeper campus
  • Part of a global footprint of 50 enterprise-class data centers across the Americas, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region
  • Ideal for government agencies required to meet FISMA criteria, as well as vertical industries, including financial services, healthcare, manufacturing and retail
  • Delivers entire Verizon portfolio of data center services – colocation, managed hosting and cloud computing

“The latest expansion at the NAP of the Capital Region is all about meeting customer requirements,” said James Duncan, vice president, global cloud sales and engineering solutions, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “Government agencies and enterprises alike continue to seek ways to streamline their IT operations by utilizing third-party data center providers. Demand for our data centers continues to expand as clients realize that we can offer the security, reliability and flexibility needed to support the workloads that are critical to their operations.”

The NAP of the Capital Region is a purpose-built Tier III federal data center featuring multiple layers of redundancy for facility operations, networking, security, power and HVAC. It is one of two facilities, the other being Miami, designed to meet or exceed government criteria for physical and environmental controls. The hardened data centers are under continuous physical and virtual surveillance, and are protected by round-the-clock guards. The data centers are designed with security features to help customers satisfy FISMA criteria. Open for business since 2008, the NAP of the Capital Region spans nearly 60 acres and currently houses four data centers and an administration building and conference center, as well as security and shipping and receiving facilities. When built to full capacity, the campus will accommodate 10 data centers with nearly one million square feet of capacity.
