“Dominion Virginia Power is excited to partner with Yyotta IXP at its location in the Stafford County,” said Stan Blackwell, Director Customer Solutions of Dominion. “The site selected by Yyotta is located in Quantico Corporate Center, which also contains two pre-certified data center sites identified by Dominion because of close proximity to electrical transmission lines and substations, access to multiple fiber networks and high volume water and sewer capacity.”
