DataBank’s Strategic Expansion: US Cities Focus


DataBank, a prominent company specializing in data storage and management solutions, recently expanded its facilities in several major U.S. cities.

Over the past year, this expansion has allowed them to significantly increase their power and available space.

The data centers are located in major US urban areas, including: Dallas, Las Vegas, San Diego, Irvine, and Kansas City as well as two in Atlanta.

Combined, these colocation facilities have added 15+ megawatts of power and 114,000 raised square feet of floor space during the past 12 months to their existing capacities.

In a broader perspective, DataBank boasts 74 such centers positioned to serve a substantial portion of the U.S. populace.

Tony Qorri, vice president of construction, DataBank, commented:

"For organizations planning to deploy, or for existing customers already set up in these data centers, these expansions give them more room to grow. They can avoid the hassle of moving to a new data center when it's time to scale their compute resources."

Customers also won't have to worry about the cost of building out their existing facilities or migrating applications to a new data center -- which helps avoid risk, according to DataBank.

With these expansions, the seven data centers now enable customers to consume more power and leverage abundant raised floor space.

This news comes a little over a month after DataBank announced the selloff of five of its data centers in France to Etix Everwhere, an operator with edge data centers in France and Belgium.
