Your Colocation Needs, Solved

Your search for secure data center solutions just succeeded. Mineral Gap’s colocation solutions have attracted numerous government agencies and other customers to choose DP Facilities, Inc.’s flagship facility — Mineral Gap Data Center — to house their critically important data and services.

Colocation Frees You

Hosting your own data can be painful, saddling you with costs and vulnerabilities that drain your resources and distract from your core mission.

Design and Constructed for Maximum Security

Our Mineral Gap Data Center is located in Wise, VA, otherwise known as “The Safest Place on Earth.” In addition to its mild climate and protected mountain location, Wise, VA is also conveniently located outside of the “blast zone,” near a large airport, and close to government mission critical locations. This area is also optimal for data security as it is characterized by the redundancy of power and telecommunication that ensures data will always be covered.

Defend Against External Risks

Our Mineral Gap Data Center enforces anti-terrorism protection and enhanced security measures through its design as a high-strength, pre-cast concrete facility with K-rated, U.S. Department of State certified anti-ram fencing and wedge barriers. Additionally, Mineral Gap has both a perimeter blast berm and counter-IED protective measures.

Defend Against Internal Risks

In addition to standard biometric and key card multi-factor authentication, the Mineral Gap facility ensures security through 24/7/365 on-duty armed security personnel, as well as extensive video and counter-surveillance systems. This facility also provides an advanced tactical command center and is NIST 800, SSAE 16 and SOC 1 & SOC 2 compliant.

Room to Grow

More Flexibility

More Land

More Power

The secure technology corridor in Southwest Virginia provides you with ample room for growth, and enables your business to expand its IT infrastructure in a single location.

Future development of the campus (Phases II & III) will accommodate 200,000+ square feet of data center space and administrative support buildings. This expansion will utilize more than 50 acres of additional adjacent land under option on the site, and allow you to scale your infrastructure quickly and inexpensively.

Additionally, Mineral Gap’s current substation offers 15MW, with a second substation planned for an additional 30MW, giving you 45 MW of power — all at a low cost of 6 cents per kWh.

OPPORTUNITY FOR ENHANCEMENT

Reduce Expenses

Mineral Gap significantly reduces your capital and operating costs with low-cost electricity at $0.06/kWh and an estimated PUE of 1.2. Pairing this with our current substations allow us to be scalable up to 45MW of power enabling you to develop your IT
operations as you grow.

Secure Development

This secure technology campus in Southwest Virginia provides you with over 200,000 square feet of data center and administrative office space. Our 50 acres of additional adjacent land enables current and future infrastructure expansion.

Enjoy a Great UX
