EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure, a wholesale data center developer, owner and operator, is expanding its presence in Northern Virginia by establishing a partnership with Penzance, a Washington, DC based real estate developer. This partnership would see both parties to co-develop a 7.6-acre site that is situated at the center of the world's largest data center market. This site is strategically located to provide customers with high-performance capacity and low-latency access to leading cloud hubs and supporting network access throughout Northern Virginia.
