DOUBLING THE SITE’S CAPACITY
Colocation, connectivity, and managed services company, DataBank, has just announced the expansion of its Las Vegas Data Center facility, LAS1, amidst growing demand in the region.
As designed, the Las Vegas expansion project is expected to more than double the site’s IT capacity, moving it from 1.4MW to 3MW of critical power capacity, however, the new construction will offer 10,000 square feet of data center space, bringing the total data center space to nearly 30,000 square feet.
“This project is the result of increased demand from our current customer base for greater data center infrastructure in the area. Built out, this expansion will maximize our current footprint in the local market. We’re proud to play an integral role in Las Vegas’ business and technology development,” said Toni Qorri, Vice President of Construction, DataBank.
In Houston, Texas, DataBank recently expanded its footprint with the acquisition of four operational data centers which belonged to CyrusOne. These facilities collectively feature over 300,000 square feet of raised-floor data center capacity, and 42.5MW of power.
Last month, DataBank also purchased the building and land which currently houses its DEN2 data center at 6900 South Peoria Street in Centennial, Colorado. Through the lease-to-own conversion, DataBank gained the ability to create a new 11-acre “Centennial Campus” by combining its DEN2 property with the adjacent land and building which the company acquired last year at 6961 South Quentin Street for the development of DEN5, DataBank’s 5th Denver market data center.
DataBank is currently expanding its Atlanta data center ATL3 and Dallas Fort Worth data center DFW3. For these expansion projects, DataBank plans to add more than 22,000 square feet of data center space to its ATL3 facility, bringing the total capacity of the Atlanta site to about 44,000 square feet of white space. On the other hand, DataBank’s Dallas / Fort Worth data center DFW3, is expected to also undergo a major expansion which will provide an additional 22,000 square feet of space to the data center and 3MW of power, delivered from 2 halls known as Data Halls 5 and 6.
