We here at DCD are happy to announce that we have an early holiday treat for subscribers: A whole new magazine issue.

In this, our biggest mag ever, we head to Virginia to find out what's in store for the largest data center market in the world.

Subscribe today. It's free.

We speak to Buddy Rizer, Loudoun's economic director, about how he helped build the data center sector in the county and how it will handle the Dominion power crisis.

Then we head to a million square foot data center run by Digital Realty, which is itself part of a bigger campus. Next, we take a ride to their planned gigawatt-scale Digital Dulles site to get a glimpse of the future.

After that, we travel to the construction sites of PowerHouse and CorScale to find out about the new crop of companies looking to cash in on the data center gold rush by building powered shells for the hyperscalers.

Following that comes a trip to NTT Global Data Centers, which fancies itself ready to compete in the big leagues. It plans to pump billions into becoming a top three data center provider.

Leaving Loudoun, we travel to Prince William County, to talk to the lady behind the PW Digital Gateway - an enormous land sale that could reshape the Virginia landscape.

Finally, we head out of Virginia entirely, to tour Quantum Loophole's giant campus, to see if it can build a framework for multiple such gigawatt campuses around the country.

That's not all that is in the magazine.

We also have an entire cooling supplement, as well as a 20-page awards special, profiling each of the DCD Awards winners of 2022.

In addition, we look at Australia's data center migration, Asia's multi-cloud efforts, and why Africa has been slow to adopt 5G.

Plus, an op-ed on social media data center chaos, the latest news, and a few other treats.

We hope you enjoy this issue - it would not have been possible without our readership, or without advertisers that support our independent vision.

I would also like to say a huge thank you to the rest of the editorial team, our designer, marketing team, and everyone else that makes this publication possible.

We're hiring more journalists next year, spending more on content than ever before, and working on our biggest pieces yet. I can't wait to share what we have in store.
