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 firm’s US total to 14.
“The building offers the latest technology and best practices in power availability, connectivity, efficient cooling and more,” said DataBank CEO Raul Martynek. “With DFW3, we’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.”

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 world’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.
