McLean, VA Data Center (DCA2)

State-of-the-Art, Tier 3 Data Center on the East Coast

Our DCA2 Data Center in Tyson’s Corner (McLean), VA was originally constructed for the US military and NSA to house critical data. Designed to be secure from physical attacks as well as electromagnetic interference, DCA2 is located in a natural disaster-free zone, well above the 100 year flood plain, and is well protected against floods, tornadoes, and earthquakes.

Since a large portion of the world’s internet passes through northern Virginia, this central location ensures optimal connectivity, speed, and routing, minimizing the number of hops.
