Additional Capacity for Compute Resources to Augment Support of the Region’s Increasing Demand for Technology Innovations
Dallas, TX – October 17, 2023 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announced today the expansion of one of its six Utah data centers (SL6). To continue supporting the western region’s growing technology ecosystem, DatBank expects to complete the expansion in Q1 of 2024, adding 25,000 square feet of raised floor space and 6MW of Critical Power, inclusive of a dedicated catcher reserve block.
Located on the “Silicon Slopes” of Utah—at 14870 South Pony Express Road in Bluffdale—SL6 is on the DataBank Granite Point Campus, which consists of four other data centers. The campus is 25 minutes from another DataBank data center in downtown Salt Lake City. The SL6 colocation facility currently provides nearly 90,000 square feet of raised floor space for compute resources along with 22MW of Critical Power. 13 carriers have established a presence at SL6 for DataBank customers to connect to.
“The SL6 expansion is primed to support the Salt Lake City area that is one of the fastest-growing technology hubs in the country,” said DataBank Vice President of Construction, Tony Qorri. “Our infrastructure resources are particularly helpful for data science innovation and supporting the region’s many tech startups. Salt Lake City is a go-to data center destination, not only for innovators but also as an alternative to expensive data centers in California.”
SL6 opened in 2023 as the fifth and final DataBank data center on the Granite Point Campus. The facility currently features N+1 power and cooling to assure uptime for customer compute resources and a 66MW substation for additional power capacity. SL6 also complies with SSAE 18, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, ISO 27001, and GDPR standards and regulations.
