Attributes 234% Revenue Growth to Record Demand from Enterprise, Hyperscale Cloud, and Emerging AI Workloads
DALLAS, Nov. 8, 2023 — DataBank today announced it was recognized on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 29th year. DataBank grew 234% during this period.
DataBank’s chief executive officer, Raul Martynek, credits increased demand from its enterprise, hyperscale, and AI customers. He also attributes DataBank’s 234% revenue growth to its ability to meet this demand with strategic land investments and infrastructure innovations. He said, “Over the past year, DataBank delivered exceptional results and consistently surpassed expectations. The investments we’ve made to expand our geographic footprint to more than 27 markets and develop a more flexible data hall design have allowed us to match the increased demand for data centers over the past three years.”
“Each year we look forward to reviewing the progress and innovations of our Technology Fast 500 winners. This year is especially celebratory as we expand the number of winners to better represent just how many companies are developing new ideas to progress our society and the world, especially during a slow economy,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “While software and services and life sciences continue to dominate the top 10, we are encouraged to see other categories making their mark. Congratulations to all the winners who show us how creativity, hard work and perseverance can lead to success.”
“As for growing companies, it’s always rewarding to be recognized for the ongoing commitment it takes to navigate obstacles, transform when necessary and ultimately create a thriving business,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “Over the nearly 30 years we’ve been compiling the Technology Fast 500, we’ve seen new categories emerge, growth rates explode, and certain regional markets shine from the bright talent they attract. We are proud of all the winners for achieving this well-deserved honor.”
