ATL4 Further Establishes DataBank as a Leader In High-Performance Computing
Dallas, TX – April 28, 2023 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announced today the groundbreaking of its ATL4 data center. The colocation facility will feature 200,000 square feet of raised floor space and four megawatts of power. Available power will eventually expand to 40 megawatts in support of the DataBank’s Universal Data Hall Design, which is ideal for hyperscalers, high-density computing, and high-performance computing workloads.
Located at 200 Selig Drive in Atlanta, ATL4 is adjacent to the Georgia Power substation to ensure reliable power for customers. The site is just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Once completed, ATL4 will tether via dark fiber to DataBank’s ATL2 and ATL3 facilities, which house connectivity nodes from Zayo Networks and other providers for metro, regional, and long-haul interconnection.
“The Atlanta metropolis continues to grow, and we are expanding our presence as the area emerges as one of the top data center markets in the country,” said DataBank Vice President of Construction, Tony Qorri.
“Adding a fourth data center to the greater Atlanta area will further establish our position as a leading enabler for high density computing workloads within this vital connectivity hub for the southeastern United States.”
“Brasfield & Gorrie is honored to contribute our mission critical construction experience to this project,” said vice president and division manager Dustin Smith. “The need for mission critical facilities has steadily grown, and Brasfield & Gorrie’s experience has grown right alongside that need. We’ve completed more than $1.3 billion of mission critical projects right here in Georgia. We are used to the attention to detail required to build a successful data center, and we’re grateful for the local trade contractors and other partners who are essential to success.”
When ATL4 opens, the four DataBank data centers in the greater Atlanta area will combine to deliver nearly 300,000 square feet of white space/slab flooring and more than 55 megawatts of power. DataBank is well positioned to support the prevailing technology trends highlighted at the upcoming 2023 Atlanta CIO Executive Leadership Summit—including innovation and invention to spur revenue growth, world-class collaboration and teaming, advanced technology to drive cost reduction, and securing a global digital agenda.
