Dallas, TX - June 13, 2017 - DataBank, Ltd., a Digital Bridge portfolio company and leading provider of business solutions for data center, cloud, interconnectivity, and managed services announced the acquisition of Stream Data Centers' latest development in Legacy Business Park. DFW3 will be a new state-of-the-art, multi-tenant, Tier-3 data center in Plano, TX. This facility will offer Dallas area businesses a new high-quality option for outsourced data center capacity in the rapidly growing Legacy business corridor.
Located on an owned 16-acre site, the initial building will comprise 145,000 sqft with 60,000 sqft of white-space and the ability to expand to 265,000 sqft and 120,000 sqft of whitespace. The facility is designed to Tier-3 standards, and will be fully secured with perimeter fencing and 24x7 onsite security. As with previous DataBank builds, the facility will employ dual 20MW utility feeds, a modular multi-pod, data-hall design and N+1 and 2N electrical options. The facility will leverage the area's high concentration of nearby fiber carriers to deliver unmatched interconnectivity and resiliency. DFW3 will also be interconnected with DataBank's two other data center locations in Metro Dallas (Downtown & Richardson) to provide additional diversity options for customers.
"This new flagship data center represents our largest and most advanced facility in the Dallas area," said Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank. "The continued demand for quality data center space in North Texas by both our existing enterprise and content customers made the investment-case quite compelling. We are excited to be bringing the facility on-line in October of this year."
