Build to Suit Data Centres

Designed to be AI and Machine Learning ready, our data centres are fully flexible to support the next generation of computing. Build to suit data centres have many meanings and their definition varies from business to business. You might have heard of the terms ‘powered shell’ or ‘shell and core’ but at its heart it’s a data centre solution built specifically for you, from the ground up.

At VIRTUS, we know that organisations of all sizes need true flexibility, which is why we don’t put hard definitions behind our offering, instead working with you to create a bespoke solution.

Whether your business has a cutting-edge AI solution that requires space to scale at speed, or a hyperscale cloud deployment that will need custom built data halls, VIRTUS has over a decade’s experience in leading the data centre industry with innovative customised solutions.

Build to Suit Data Centre

The VIRTUS Solution

Amongst many, the benefits of choosing a build to suit data centre solution include:

  • Speed to market: VIRTUS leads the London market in rapidly deploying high quality data centre space, bringing in 51MW online in 2021 alone. We understand where the best locations are to build a data centre – from mitigating risk to building on existing fibre routes and securing power (in many cases we already have this reserved). For example VIRTUS already has over 350MW of brand new data centre space under construction in our Berlin locations.

  • Experience: VIRTUS has a wealth of experience, and proven track record of building and operating data centres to suit, with multiple sites built specifically for single tenants from the ground up, including already supporting many critical generative AI solutions, and housing one of the most powerful super compute deployments ever designed.

  • Scalability: The huge benefit of building out your own dedicated data centre facility is that it offers you the freedom to grow into the space at your own pace, taking advantage of VIRTUS’ experience of modular design and build. Delivering the latest technologies, just in time.

  • Flexibility: As a well-funded data centre owner-operator, VIRTUS offers the ability to work with you at any step of the process to customise your solution to meet every need, working with you as a true partner.

  • Sustainable and safe: Whether you’re looking for a data centre partner which is powered by 100% renewable energy, or one has an outstanding record for health and safety, VIRTUS fulfils all of these requirements. As part of the wider STT Global Data Centres group, our collective experience spans more than a multiple decade and multiple geographies.
