DataBank Announces Integration of Salt Lake City Data Centers and Substation Expansion
DataBank brings benefits of a national footprint of top-tier data centers and expands the Bluffdale Campus with a 22 MW substation
Salt Lake City, MN - August 30, 2017 - DataBank, Ltd., a Digital Bridge portfolio company and leading provider of business solutions for data center, cloud, interconnectivity, and managed services, announced today the official integration of the former C7 Datacenter sites into DataBank as well as the construction of a 22 MW substation for the company's Bluffdale data center campus. With three data centers currently in the Salt Lake City market, DataBank is the largest and most comprehensive provider in the region for enterprise businesses seeking top-tier outsourced options for colocation, cloud solutions, and managed services.
DataBank acquired C7 Datacenters in the first quarter of 2017. Since the acquisition, DataBank has focused heavily on the incorporation of staff, systems, support and building relationships with the existing customer base of local and regional enterprises. The three data center footprint includes a downtown interconnection-rich location connected by redundant dark fiber to the Southern 23+ acre campus in Bluffdale, UT. The substation will increase power delivery to 22 MW and is expandable to 66 MW. The campus currently houses two data centers with ample capacity for additional facilities.
"We have definitely benefited from the great reputation C7 built throughout this region," said Raul Martynek, CEO of DataBank. "In addition to acquiring high quality sites and great people, we also gained a diverse client-base of enterprise businesses not only from Utah, but also from Arizona, Nevada, and California." Raul continued, "As part of the acquisition, we also acquired over six acres of additional land adjacent to our Bluffdale campus. That extra land, coupled with a new 22 MW on-site sub-station, will allow us to meet the growing demand in the market from both regional and national enterprises."
In addition to DataBank's three Salt Lake City-area sites, the company also operates data centers in Dallas, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Atlanta. To find out additional details on DataBank data centers and services, please visit the company website at www.databank.com.
