DataBank Announces a Major New Data Center Build in Northern Virginia

DataBank Announces a Major New Data Center Build in Northern Virginia

IAD3 Will Bring a Rich Interconnection Ecosystem to the Largest Data Center Market in the World

Dallas, TX – November 8, 2021DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, interconnection, and managed cloud services, announced today it is breaking ground on a 200,000 sq. ft. data center in Northern Virginia, the world’s largest data center market. DataBank’s new facility, IAD3, will be built on the DataBank-owned land adjacent to its current site in Ashburn, VA. IAD3 will offer 4MW of power initially with the ability to deliver up to 40MW of power. The facility will be ready for service in Q1 2023.

An area rich in fiber connectivity and tech talent, Northern Virginia has a high concentration of enterprises, technology, cloud computing, hyperscale cloud providers, and content providers that require dense interconnection and proximity to best-in-class data center infrastructure.

“DataBank is investing extensively across our portfolio nationwide, and IAD3 represents a tremendous opportunity for our clients to take advantage of Ashburn’s location and proximity to 70% of the world’s Internet traffic. This Ashburn data center more than doubles our colocation footprint in Loudoun County, providing a high-quality colocation solution for cloud, content, technology and Fortune 500 customers,” said Raul Martynek, CEO of DataBank.

DataBank’s facility will incorporate the latest modular design and energy-efficient technologies available today and demonstrates DataBank’s commitment to building environmentally sustainable data center solutions.

More than 70 percent of the world’s internet traffic routes through Northern Virginia’s “Data Center Alley.” As the velocity and volume of data are rapidly increasing, Web-Scale IT organizations must have access to low latency connectivity coupled with high capacity infrastructure designed to meet stringent compliance and security requirements. IAD3 will bolster DataBank’s significant presence in this region, including its two existing facilities in Ashburn and McLean with a total of 22.5 MW of power across 111,000 sq. ft. of raised floor data center space.

DataBank will host a groundbreaking event on December 1, 2021 and will feature local dignitaries including Buddy Rizer, executive director of the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development.
