DataBank Ltd., a Digital Bridge portfolio company and leading provider of business solutions for data center, cloud, connectivity, and managed services, announces today the construction of KC3, a 50,000-square-foot facility strategically located in the growing Kansas City market. The initial build will deliver 25,000 square feet of raised white floor and 3MW of capacity, expandable to 50,000 square feet and a total design capacity of 6MW. KC3 will offer DataBank’s full portfolio of solutions, including colocation, cloud, and managed services, and will host the latest generation DataBank cloud and security platform. The addition of KC3 brings the company’s total data center count to 15.
The purchase of the new data center location, which is adjacent to existing DataBank facility KC1, includes an additional four acres of land allowing for future expansion. “Kansas City continues to be a great market for critical infrastructure, and this third data center demonstrates the confidence we have in this strategic Tier 2 edge market,” states Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank. “The new KC3 facility complements our existing footprint of Midwestern data centers and provides our customers and new prospects additional inventory for growth.”
Located in the Southlake business park in Lenexa, KS, the existing building structure will be redeveloped into a Tier III datacenter with a target occupancy date of Q3-2018. The facility will go live with six fiber providers and includes 24x7x365 onsite support, secure and diverse network entry points, A/B redundant power configuration and diverse utility power feeds. DataBank customers can also leverage onsite amenities including office workspace, presentation rooms, client labs, and staging areas.
