    Report: Northern Va. will become largest data center market by 2015


    Northern Virginia is set to overtake the New York City metropolitan area with the most data center space in the United States sometime in 2015.

    At the end of last year New York and Northern Virginia had nearly the same amount of square footage at 3.25 million and 3.22 million square feet, respectively. Likely at the end of 2014 the two areas will be close to tied again.

    But construction is slowing down in New York, while Loudoun County is set to have major expansion over the next one to two years.

    By some metrics, like density and overall capacity, data centers in Northern Virginia already have surpassed their neighbors to the north.

    The strategy to bring data centers into the county began in 2010 when Buddy Rizer became the Department of Economic Development's first salesperson.

    He is now the director of economic development, and there are now more than 50 data centers in the county.
