March 21, 2019 – Dallas, Texas – DataBank Ltd., a Digital Bridge portfolio company and leading provider of business solutions for data center, cloud, interconnectivity and managed services, announces today that its third Dallas data center is now open. The purpose-built, 145,000-square-foot facility (DFW3), strategically located in the North DFW Metroplex suburb of Plano, TX, is available to serve business customers with unmatched capacity and redundancy of design.
“We took the greatest care in custom building this state-of-the-art facility, which offers the latest technology and best practices in power availability, connectivity, efficient cooling and more,” states DataBank CEO Raul Martynek. “With DFW3, we’re proud to boost our total facility count to 14 data centers in eight key markets and offer yet another world-class data hub through which we can deliver our signature local service and national reach.”
“Opening our third data center in DataBank’s home city of Dallas is especially exciting to us,” comments Kevin Ooley, President and CFO of Databank. “We are excited to contribute to this growing area in North Dallas that’s abundant with new enterprise relocations, top tech talent, and opportunity.”
With one of the world’s largest concentrations of publicly traded corporate headquarters, Dallas is a destination market for new data center workloads. The Dallas-Fort Worth area ranked 3rd in the latest JLL Data Center Report, with over 40MWs of new absorption in 2017. In January 2018, Business Insider included Dallas on its list of “10 US cities that are growing fast, offering jobs, and presenting business opportunities.”
DFW3 boasts six separate data halls offering more than 72,000 square feet of raised-floor space for build-to-suit deployments. The facility is highly secure with full perimeter fencing encompassing the building, and around-the-clock onsite security personnel. As with all of DataBank’s data centers, this facility’s Meet-Me-Rooms (MMRs) are connected to the company’s dedicated fiber ring, which offers high-bandwidth access to top-tier network providers.
