Dallas – June 13, 2012 – DataBank Holdings, Ltd., a leading custom data center and colocation provider based in Dallas, announced details on the new North Dallas data center. The stand-alone secured facility will be located on Digital Realty’s North Dallas – Richardson campus, but will operate as an independent premium facility. The facility will be divided into a four phase deployment with the first 10,000 square foot data center ‘Pod’ available to customers during the fourth quarter of 2012.
DataBank’s newest enterprise-class facility will initially be built out to 50,000 square feet, a planned expansion area will accommodate an additional 10,000 square feet of space. To meet DataBank’s high power requirements, the facility will have dedicated power delivery via dual 10MW utility feeds in a 2(N) configuration.
“We could not be more pleased with the new facility’s location,” said Tim Moore, CEO of DataBank. “To construct a facility that meets DataBank standards we needed a unique site combining ultra-high power availability and a dense concentration of fiber providers. Our partners at Digital Realty were able to provide us with a unique and premium property in a stellar data center park setting.” Moore continued, “DataBank’s product is anchored on a 100% uptime availability SLA for enterprise, hosting and cloud providers that make up the bulk of our client base. Also, this location allows us to duplicate our product in North Dallas.”
“DataBank approached Digital Realty looking for a solution that would give it complete control over its business and technical operations,” said David Caron, Senior Vice President, Portfolio Management at Digital Realty. “Our Powered Base Building data center solution supported DataBank’s vision to expand its business, how, when and where it was needed.”
DataBank is known for delivering a highly secure data center environment for clients, and plans for the facility to undergo audits including SSAE16 and PCI-DSS, are already underway. To meet compliance requirements, customers in the new data center will be able to take advantage of a variety of optional custom-layered security features for their deployments.
