DataBank Named “Data Center Solution of the Year” in 2024 Data Breakthrough Awards

Data center provider recognized for its flexible and innovative data hall design

DALLAS, April 11, 2024 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, interconnection, and managed services, today announced that it has been selected as the “Data Center Solution of the Year” for its Universal Data Hall Design (UDHD) in the fifth annual Data Breakthrough Awards program conducted by Tech Breakthrough.

To accommodate the growing demand for high-density colocation brought about by generative AI’s accelerated adoption, DataBank rolled out an agile framework for building next-gen data centers. The company’s Universal Data Hall Design (UDHD) was created to address the challenge of rapidly and efficiently deploying new data center capacity for today’s wide range of workloads: from enterprise colocation applications to next-gen AI applications. UDHD allows DataBank to bring on new capacity quickly and efficiently without having to retrofit or redesign a facility.

“Data centers are at the core of our digital lives, and we created UDHD to better accommodate the growing demand for data center services,” said Raul Martynek, CEO at DataBank. “UDHD is crucial to our ability to evolve along with technology, prioritizing flexibility and resiliency for the future. We’re honored by this recognition from Data Breakthrough for our focus on building the data centers of the future.”

The Data Breakthrough Awards recognizes the breakthrough companies, products and services in this new era of digital data, with categories spanning across Data Analytics, Big Data, Data Storage and many more. This year’s award attracted over 2,250 nominations from companies around the world.
