On-site power for DataBank

Dallas-based DataBank has opened a new data center in the city, with on-site power powering its operations.

The data centre and cloud solutions firm already has data centres in the Dallas-Fort Worth digital development hotspot, and this opening takes the firmࢀ™s US total to 14.
ࢀœThe building offers the latest technology and best practices in power availability, connectivity, efficient cooling and more,ࢀ said DataBank CEO Raul Martynek. ࢀœWith DFW3, weࢀ™re proud to boost our total facility count to 14 data centres in eight key markets, and offer yet another world-class data hub through which we can deliver our signature local service and national reach.ࢀ

Site specifications include 9 MW of usable UPS power, expandable to 13 MW, and 40 MW (dual 20MW utility feeds) of high-density, on-site power deployed via underground diverse delivery systems. The facility is HIPAA, SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II and PCI DSS compliant.

With one of the worldࢀ™s largest concentrations of publicly traded corporate headquarters, Dallas is a destination market for new data centre workloads. The Dallas-Fort Worth area ranked third in the latest JLL Data Center Report, with over 40 MW of new capacity in 2017.
