OPENS THE THIRD DATA HALL
Large scale data center and connectivity provider DataBank, has just announced the expansion of its Dallas Fort Worth Data Center, DFW3.
The DFW3 facility houses DataBank’s flagship Dallas area data center, located in the Legacy Park section of Plano, TX. With the latest expansion, the company has opened Data Hall 3 which brings an additional 12,000 square feet of raised floor and 1.5MW of IT power to the facility.
“This flagship data center represents our largest and most advanced facility in the Dallas area. DataBank continues to meet its commitments to current and potential customers who need reliable, first-class IT infrastructure to handle colocation, connectivity and cloud services,” said Danny Allen, vice president of engineering at DataBank.
Sited within the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and adjacent to the region’s “Telecom Corridor,” DFW3 has been designed as a carrier-neutral facility that upon full build, will accommodate a total of six data halls, delivering 72,000 square feet of usable data center space and up to 40MW of total power from diverse utility feeds.
This Databank facility currently provides access to ten on-site carrier POPs and two other major Dallas metroplex carrier hotels. It is also interconnected with DataBank’s two other data centers in the region DFW1 and DFW2.
Few weeks ago, DataBank also announced the expansion of its Pittsburgh Data Center PIT2, adding 25,000 square feet of raised floor space and 2.5MW of IT power to the facility. This expansion now enables the PIT2 facility to offer a total of 40,000 square feet of raised floor space and 4.5MW of IT critical load capacity.
Prior to the expansion of PIT2, the company massively expanded its global portfolio through the acquisition of over 40 zColo data centers, Databank closed the deal in December 2020, bolstering its data center assets and operations across markets in the US and UK.
