VPLS has acquired a data center in Santa Clara, California, its third data center deal this year.

The 30,000 sq ft, 3MW facility was bought from Wave Broadband and will be renamed to SV3. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Wave took over the facility at 3080 Raymond Street, when it bought Layer42 in 2015. The SV3 data center currently has 1.5MW of available capacity for colocation customers.

“We are excited to continue the expansion of our global network with the addition of a data center strategically located in the heart of Silicon Valley,” said Jay Smith, vice president and general manager, data centers at VPLS. “This latest investment in one of the most supply-constrained West Coast markets further solidifies VPLS’s commitment to invest in key markets where customers need us most.

Founded in 2003, Wave Broadband provides TV, Internet, and telephone services to residents and business customers across Washington, Oregon, and California. Wave is part of Astound Broadband, which was acquired by Stonepeak from TPG in an $8.1 billion deal that closed this year.

Jim Holanda, CEO of Wave Broadband, added: “We think this is in the best interest for our dedicated colocation customers in the Santa Clara facility and will provide them with additional product and facility options related to colocation.”

Evocative Data Centers acquired VPLS in 2019, and rebranded under the newly bought brand. The company provides colocation, hosting, and various cloud services from 16 data centers globally.

The company acquired a 75,000 square foot (7,000 sqm), 10MW data center in Texas in August, and bought a former vXchange facility in Chappaqua, New York, in April. In October 2020 VPLS acquired the Hawaii-based ZR Systems and the company’s Honolulu data center with it.
