DataBank, a data center, managed services and cloud hosting provider based in Dallas, Texas has announced the Grand Opening of the company’s sixth data center recently completed in Eagan, Minnesota. The event will give businesses in the “Twin Cities” an opportunity to view the latest technologies employed to deliver the highest spec multi-tenant data center in the region.
With the infrastructure completed in late April, the colocation facility then underwent a rigorous commissioning process which included an Uptime Institute audit to achieve Tier-III build certification.
“DataBank is thrilled to open up the doors to the Twin Cities premier colocation facility,” said Jerry Blair, Co-Founder & SVP of Sales for DataBank. “We’ve found the region has a well-established and discerning IT presence which cultivated a demand for high-end enterprise data center space over the last few years. With this facility we can address the unique needs of a variety of enterprise users. From MSPs and cloud providers, to financial institutions and healthcare organizations – we can deliver the highest levels of redundancy and service.”
The East Twin Cities facility will accommodate over 50,000 square feet of raised floor across four ‘data-hall’ deployments. The colocation facility is designed to be a ‘Carrier-Hotel’ and will employ two large scale MMRs (Meet-Me-Rooms) to support the built-to-suit cabinet, cage and private suite environments with unmatched connectivity.
DataBank is headquartered in the historic former Federal Reserve Bank Building, in downtown Dallas, Texas and has additional data centers in Dallas, Minneapolis and Kansas City.
