Semiconductor designer Marvell has taken space at Benaroya's recently finished South Hill data center campus in Puyallup, Washington (south of Seattle).

This is the first publicly disclosed tenant at the facility, completed in July. The companies did not specify how much space or power Marvell contracted for, but said the tenant would use it to house both active and disaster-recovery infrastructure.

Larry Benaroya, the data center development company's principal, commented: "We are pleased to be working with Marvell to meet their data center requirements. South Hill Data Center provides an ideal secure facility to handle the rapidly expanding demands of cloud computing, data storage and retrieval, and disaster recovery."

The building's total area measures 300,000 sq ft. As of April, the building contained about 56,000 sq ft of raised floor and had access to 42.5MW of power through dual substations, according to Benaroya, the company.

The 92-acre campus has another 175,000 sq ft building, which at this point remains a "cold shell".

In April, the building where Marvell took space received a LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council, which is the council's second highest award for environmentally friendly design, construction and operation of facilities.
