DataBank Announces Grand Opening of Newest Kansas City Data Center

KC3 Solidifies the Company’s Leadership Position in the Greater Kansas City Metro Market

Dallas, TX – April 15, 2019  DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, connectivity, managed services and cloud solutions, announces today the grand opening of KC3, a Tier III data center facility in the growing Kansas City market. The grand opening event, set for May 15th, will feature Eddie Kennison, former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver, who will offer wine tastings from his Barrel 87 Club. In addition, DataBank will have a raffle, food, and opportunities to network with business leaders. Group tours of the new world class data center will also be available.

KC3 is DataBank’s third data center location in the greater Kansas City area, completing a high-speed optical metro transport ring in a region with growing demands for connectivity. With private fiber rings linking KC3 to DataBank’s KC1 and KC2 facilities, plus large carrier hotels in the market, KC3 provides optimal connectivity to the region.

The site is a true enterprise-class facility, with redundant power and cooling configurations, diverse network entry points and multiple fiber providers to deliver exceptional network resiliency and uptime. The more than seven-acre campus currently has a 44,000 square foot data center with 25,000 square feet of raised floor, that can potentially be expanded to 100,000+ of raised floor space. 12MW of total power will be available to the expanded site, with critical load capability of 4-6MW.

“Kansas City is quite literally at the center of the country’s growing national market for data center services and solutions,” comments Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank. “The grand opening of KC3 cements our commitment of providing the highest quality infrastructure solutions and customer support to an area that is home to notable corporate HQs and leading enterprises.”
