DataBank, a company headquartered in the historic former Federal Reserve Bank Building in downtown Dallas, TX, with additional data centers in North Dallas, Minneapolis and Kansas City, has announced the expansion of both data center capacity and cloud services in their premier Minneapolis-Saint Paul-area facility.
The addition of a cloud node and the commencement of construction on the site’s second data hall will increase the facility’s onsite IT service suite as well as augment the available white-floor data center space by over 15,000 square feet to accommodate increasing market demand.
DataBank’s Minneapolis data center, known as MSP2, is located on a dedicated and secured site in the Southeastern Twin Cities suburb of Eagan, MN. The Tier-III (Uptime Institute certified – constructed) facility boasts some of the highest specs for a multi-tenant data center in the entire region. Designed for 20MW of onsite power (diverse feeds of 10MW A&B), the 2N design in both utility and onsite power generation would have differentiated DataBank to discerning businesses seeking the utmost security and uptime availability.
“We are very pleased with the interest and growth of demand in this market for the high quality services we offer,” said Tim Moore, CEO of DataBank. “The expansion we’ve begun in both space and cloud services represent our commitment to offer the best outsourced information technology solutions here in the Twin Cities.”
In addition to the two Minneapolis-area sites, DataBank’s “super-regional” footprint also includes two enterprise-grade data centers in Kansas City, as well two more in Dallas.
