Colocation provider DataBank’s SLC5 data center in Bluffdale, Utah’s Granite Point North campus complex, has opened data halls 4 and 5.
It follows the company’s recent announcement of data hall three’s opening at the same location.
In DataBank’s SLC5 facility there are five data halls, each with 10,000 square feet of raised floor space and a 2 MW UPS. SLC5 now has 50,000 square feet of elevated flooring and 10MW of critical IT load after the completion of these last data halls.
There are over a dozen carriers and cloud service providers available through the Granite Point campus’ SLC5 facility, while DataBank has its own private on-site 66MW N+1 power substation.
To ensure compliance with HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and SSAE-18 SOC1 and SOC2, as well as GDPR, the SLC5 campus was designed from the bottom up.
As a result of this power, network, and facility combination, the DataBank SLC5 would be an ideal colocation data center for high-performance computing for content providers as well as hyperscale providers and big organizations.
Salt Lake City – Silicon Slopes
The Salt Lake City region, often known as the ‘Silicon Slopes,’ would offer a business-friendly climate and a low cost of living that may help any firm flourish. Because of this, as well as the low cost of electricity and the wide availability of network access, the number of big technological firms locating in the state has increased dramatically.
“The completion of the five data halls is reflective of the regional embrace of technology and of unrelenting customer demand for colocation, connectivity and cloud services,” said Raul K. Martynek, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at DataBank. “All of this solidifies Salt Lake City’s status as a prime location for enterprise-class data centers. With all five data halls at SLC5 open and expected to fill quickly, we’ve already broken ground on SLC6, our next facility on the Granite Point campus.”
