AN ADDITIONAL 4MW OF IT POWER
Provider of colocation, connectivity, and managed services DataBank, has just announced the opening of 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 announced, 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 2 MW of UPS, bringing the data center facility’s total to 50,000 square feet of raised flooring and 10 MW of critical IT load – offering network connectivity to carriers and cloud providers, as well as access to DataBank’s own private, onsite, 66 MW N+1 power substation.
DataBank announced the opening of this facility in July 2020, its fifth data center (SLC5) in Salt Lake City, also marking its twentieth operational data center facility as at then. The company has since being expanding the facility to meet up with its planned features including 50,000 square feet of raised-floor space and 13MW of total power availability.
“The completion of the five data halls is reflective of the regional embrace of technology and of unrelenting customer demand for colocation, connectivity and cloud services. All of this solidifies Salt Lake City’s status as a prime location for enterprise-class data centers. With all five data halls at SLC5 open and expected to fill quickly, we’ve already broken ground on SLC6, our next facility on the Granite Point campus,” said Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank.
DataBank also announced the ground breaking of its sixth Salt Lake City data center, code named SLC6 last month, located in Bluffdale, UT, between Salt Lake City and Utah, on the company’s Granite Point North campus designed to accommodate high-performance computing, content providers, cloud giants, hyperscale providers, and large enterprises due to the combination of power, network facilities, and the convenience of a campus-like setting.
