The move comes a week after DataBank Holdings acquired colocation provider VeriSpace for an undisclosed amount.
Completed in February, the new data center site has “undergone a rigorous commissioning and coordination process to ensure the entire infrastructure operates at the highest levels of efficiency and redundancy,” says DataBank.
The company has already started customer deployments within the new facility, as well as arranging private tours by appointment for prospective clients that require a zero-downtime solution for their critical IT infrastructure.
DataBank has over 130,000 square feet of usable data center space across six data centers in its 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.
DataBank has deployed a new 4-node redundant fiber ring which interconnects both the downtown Dallas facility and its new North Dallas facility as well as the carrier-hotels at 2323 Bryan & 1950 Stemmons, all of which will increase carrier access at both DataBank facility sites to over 100 diverse providers via a simple cross-connect.
The North Dallas data center has been designed around four 10,000-plus square foot raised floor Pod deployments, enabling DataBank to deliver its premium build-to-suit customized space options.
The data center is backed by 20MW utility power, configured in dual 10MW feeds, delivering DataBank’s true 2N A/B power which allows for a 100 percent uptime platform for critical infrastructure and applications.
The facility 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 and vice president 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. 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.”
