DATABANK’S 5TH DATA CENTER IN THE METRO AREA
Colocation and connectivity services provider DataBank, has today announced the acquisition of a 34-acre land in Orangeburg, New York for the development of a new 30MW data center campus.
The acquisition of this property gives DataBank a home for its New York City metro area’s fifth data center, a campus facility that is planned to span 200,000 square feet with 150,000 square feet of raised floor across five 6MW data halls.
“The investment in this new campus responds to the New York City metro area’s need for colocation, connectivity, and cloud services, solidifying its status as a prime location for enterprise-class data centers. With this acquisition, DataBank will bring to the nation’s largest market both high-value IT operations jobs and the reliable IT infrastructure our customers need to create a limitless digital future for their business,” said Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank.
The Orangeburg property includes a utility-owned substation which is stated to be capable of providing up to 45MW of utility power and DataBank plans to add future expansion facilities to the campus including an additional substation.
This announcement is coming about two weeks after DataBank opened two data halls numbered four and five in its SLC5 data center which are located on the company’s Granite Point North campus complex in Bluffdale, Utah. As part of the facility’s expansion, these new data halls are the fourth and fifth of five data halls at the SLC5 facility, each providing 10,000 square feet of raised floor and 2MW of UPS, bringing the data center facility’s total to 50,000 square feet of raised floor and 10MW of critical IT load.
DataBank’s Granite Point Campus also houses the company’s new sixth Salt Lake data center which is currently under construction and designed from the ground up, targeting content providers, cloud, hyperscale, and large enterprises customers.
