Dallas – DataBank Holdings, Ltd., a leading custom data center and colocation provider based in Dallas, announced today, the company will be hosting an Open House event on March 28th at their newest data center facility located in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, TX. The event will highlight DataBank’s latest facility, the highest quality Multi-Tenant Data Center (MTDC) available in the DFW marketplace
Completed in February, the site has undergone a rigorous commissioning and coordination process to ensure the entire infrastructure operates at the highest levels of efficiency and redundancy. Customer deployments have already begun within the new facility, and private tours for prospective clients that require a zero-downtime solution for their critical IT infrastructure can be arranged by appointment.
DataBank already delivers over 130,000 square feet of usable data center space across six data centers in their Downtown Dallas location, which is also the site of the company’s headquarters. Housed within the ultra-secure former Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, DataBank clients have direct connections to over 27 independent network providers on-site. Leveraging this access, DataBank has deployed a new 4-node redundant fiber ring which interconnects both the Downtown Dallas facility and the new North Dallas facility as well as the Carrier-Hotels at 2323 Bryan & 1950 Stemmons. This will boost carrier access at both DataBank facility sites to over one-hundred diverse providers via a simple cross-connect.
The North Dallas facility has been designed around four 10,000+ square foot raised floor ‘Pod’ deployments. This configuration enables DataBank to deliver the company’s premium build-to-suit customized space options which can be individually designed to meet a customer’s specific regulatory requirements.
The facility is anchored by 20MW utility power (configured in dual 10MW feeds), delivering DataBank’s true 2N A/B power which allows for a 100% uptime platform for critical infrastructure and applications. In addition to robust power, DataBank has also deployed a highly-efficient redundant-loop chilled water system and high-efficiency perimeter cooling units.
“DataBank is thrilled to open the doors to this market’s top colocation facility”, said Jerry Blair, DataBank Founder & VP of Sales. “This is one of the highest quality MTDC facilities ever opened in the region, which has had a growing demand for higher-class data center space in the last few years.” Blair continued, “Enterprise users, MSPs, cloud providers, financial and healthcare, just to name a few…are key industries that will be able to take advantage of and benefit from the enhanced service levels we can provide.”
