DataBank's Premium North Dallas Data Center Nearing Completion
- Published on December 5, 2012
New facility delivers a truly redundant 100% uptime solution for enterprise-level colocation
Dallas – DataBank Holdings, Ltd., a leading custom data center and colocation provider based in Dallas, announced today the company’s latest facility will be completed on schedule. The facility, located in Richardson, TX, will be commissioned in January and ready for customer move-in. Space in the new facility is currently being contracted by current customers looking for diverse locations, as well as new prospects that are seeking a zero-downtime solution for their critical IT deployments.
The facility features the latest technologies to deliver premium environment, redundant high-density power and network connectivity. DataBank currently operates data center facilities totaling over 130,000 square feet of usable data center space in their Downtown Dallas headquarters. The data centers which are housed in the ultra-secure former Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, have rich Telecom carrier access to 27 different network providers. The new North Dallas facility will be able to leverage that abundance of network access through DataBank’s proprietary 4-node fiber ring which was put in place to facilitate inter-connection to those carriers via a simple cross-connect.
The new facility has been configured to be deployed in four 10,000+ raised floor ‘Pod’ configurations. This allows DataBank to deliver the company’s premium build-to-suit customized space options which can be directed to meet a customer’s specific regulatory requirements. The facility is powered by 20MW of utility power (configured in dual 10MW feeds) delivering DataBank’s true 2N A/B power which allow for a real 100% uptime platform for critical infrastructure and applications.
In addition to robust power, DataBank has also employed a highly-efficient redundant-loop chilled water system, which is anchored by high-efficiency perimeter cooling units. The units selected to offer higher peak-cooling while maximizing the advantage of DataBank’s large return-air plenum. With the combined benefit, DataBank will be able to deliver unsurpassed efficiency and configurability for a variety of customer deployments.
“This facility offers a unique choice for businesses interested in a premium data center option within the attractive North Dallas technology corridor,” said Jerry Blair, DataBank founder & VP of Sales. “Our solid reputation for delivering top-tier service and support has resulted in very strong demand for us to expand our presence, here in the region. The new facility represents a commitment by DataBank to provide the best option for Enterprise and Cloud computing clients who have zero-tolerance for downtime.”
