DataBank, a provider of enterprise-grade data center, cloud, and interconnection services, has announced the acquisition of Stream Data Centers’ latest data center development in Legacy Business Park in Dallas (Plano), Texas.
The new Tier-3 data center, DataBank DFW3, is located on an owned 16-acre site. The initial building will comprise 145,000 sq. ft. with 60,000 sq. ft. of whitespace and the ability to expand to 265,000 sq. ft. and 120,000 sq. ft. of whitespace.
As with previous DataBank builds, the new data center will employ dual 20MW utility feeds, a modular multi-pod, data-hall design and N+1 and 2N electrical options. The facility will leverage the area’s high concentration of nearby fiber carriers to deliver interconnectivity and resiliency. DFW3 will also be interconnected with DataBank’s two other data center locations in Metro Dallas (Downtown & Richardson) to provide additional diversity options for customers.
“This new flagship data center represents our largest and most advanced facility in the Dallas area,” said Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank. “The continued demand for quality data center space in North Texas by both our existing enterprise and content customers made the investment-case quite compelling. We are excited to be bringing the facility on-line in October of this year.”
DataBank currently operates 11 data center locations in six markets (Dallas, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Pittsburgh and Cleveland) totaling over 500,000 square feet of deployed data center space.
