Increased Capacity to Host Compute Resources Enables Continued Support of Increasing Demands for Infrastructure and Connectivity in the Southwest
Dallas, TX – October 2, 2023 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announced today the expansion of its flagship Dallas data center (DFW3) to support the southwest region’s growing technology ecosystem. The new development will add 22,000 square feet of raised floor space and 3MW of Critical Power, inclusive of a dedicated catcher reserve block.
Located on a 16-acre campus at 8375 Dominion Parkway in Plano, DFW3 is powered by dual feeds from an off-site Oncor substation. The facility currently delivers 20MW of power and provides valuable metro connectivity (via Data Center Interconnect) to DataBank’s other Dallas data centers, which are just 20-30 minutes away.
“The Plano campus design streamlines this expansion as we had already created scalable space and power options for customers requiring higher-density colocation services,” said DataBank Vice President of Construction, Tony Qorri. “The expansion of our very first data center also syncs with the growing importance of the Dallas area in the data center ecosystem that connects users across the U.S. and South America.”
DFW3 features an N+1 power design and N+1 cooling to assure uptime for customer compute resources. As an Uptime Certified Tier III data center, DFW3 offers network availability to multiple dark fiber providers and houses nodes for all DataBank cloud services—including Enterprise Cloud, FedRAMP Cloud, SAN and Object Storage, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, Storage as a Service, and Disaster Recovery as a Service.
