Where Data Center, Subsea Fiber and Terrestrial Networks Converge
Southern Virginia has long been attracting investment from network and data center providers. Specifically, Henrico County has been at the forefront of this trend due to a combination of business friendly policies, attractive land for development, scalable power and a highly educated workforce in the county and surrounding areas. As a result, the area has a rich tapestry of existing fiber networks, internet exchanges, SDN networks and data centers serving thousands of customers. The recent arrival of the MAREA and BRUSA subsea cables, which terminate in Henrico County, is a transformative event that has opened the European, Latin and South American markets to the region via the lowest latency and highest capacity ever deployed between the continents. The only place all of these networks are available to peer with each other is the QTS Richmond NAP. This historic confluence of domestic and international connectivity has established the region as an international business destination, setting the stage for the next wave of investment and economic growth.
