DataBank Ltd. announced in late November that it has plans to expand its Dallas data center.
The facility originally opened in 2006 and since then the company has had numerous customer deployments and recently signed a new agreement with a large, unnamed tenant. The new influx of traffic has required DataBank to create new space in the Texas data center.
Once the project is completed, the new tenant will be taking space on a private floor which will make up nearly half of the 22,000 square-foot expansion.
The site was built-out inside the former Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and now encompasses 160,000 square feet of available space. Along with the added square footage, the expansion of the Dallas data center will also provide an extra 4 MW of power in order to feed the new space.
DataBank also operates a Richardson, Texas data center which was expanded in 2013. Also in the company's portfolio are two enterprise-class Kansas City data centers and a Minneapolis data center. A second Minnesota data center is currently under construction for the company, adding another 90,000 square-foot facility to their growing national data center footprint.
